Tuesday’s child may be full of woe, but it’s hard to be woeful when you’re Wordle-ing. Working it out all by yourself is the most satisfying way, it’s true — but if you get stuck and start to get nervous about your streak, we’ve got some tips and hints to nudge you towards the solution.
You can skip to the very end of this article for the answer to the June 21 Wordle, #367 — or take your time scrolling down for a few tips, subtle clues for today’s word, and strategies to help you every day.
Wordle was created by former Reddit engineer Josh Wardle as a gift for his puzzle-loving partner. It eventually became a staple of their family WhatsApp messaging, and that’s when Wardle started to suspect he might have something special enough to merit a wider release. Thousands of people around the globe now play this game each day, and fans have even created alternatives to Wordle inspired by the original format. This includes music identification game Heardle, Hollywood nerd faves Actorle and Framed, and variations like Dordle and Quordle that have you solving up to 16 puzzles at once.
Not the day you’re after? You’ll find the Wordle answer for June 20 here.
What’s the best Wordle starting word?
We have some ideas to help you pick the perfect first move (or as close to perfect as you can get without just magically guessing the exact right word). Such tips include choosing a word with at least two different vowels in it, plus a few common consonants such as S, T, R, or N.
What happened to the Wordle archive? Did the archive get taken down?
Yes, you used to be able to play the entire archive of past puzzles, but the archive was taken down at the request of the New York Times, according to the site.
Is Wordle getting harder?
If you’ve been finding Wordle too easy, there is a Hard Mode you can enable to give yourself more of a challenge. But unless you activate this mode, we can assure you that Wordle isn’t getting harder.
Why are there two different Wordle answers some days?
The whole point of Wordle is that everyone’s solving the same puzzle, with the same answer, no matter where you are in the world. However, occasionally the puzzle game will accept two different correct solutions on the same day, in apparent defiance of Wordle law.
This aberration is due to changes the New York Times began making after it acquired Wordle earlier this year. To make sure you’re always getting the same puzzle as everyone else, refresh your browser before you play — don’t worry, the site will keep your streak.
