Here’s today’s Wordle #295 solution plus a helpful hint.
Welcome to another installment of Wordle where we have 1800 or so five letter words left before we move on. Yeah it’s going to be a while, but lately we’ve been on a bit of a streak of easier words, rather than things you need to look up. This is definitely a word you’ll know, but it’s not always how difficult the word is, it’s how your guesses shape the clue progression, so we’ll see how you do.
I’ve been keeping my Wordle streak alive since I lost it a week or so ago. What can I say? A lack of sleep from having a newborn is heavily affecting my Wordle prowess. But I suppose it also may be keeping my mind sharp at the same time as I push through the fuzz of tiredness and overlook the fact that my veins are mostly caffeine at this point.
This will be a spoiler alert warning for those of you who may have arrived here by accident, and only want a hint instead. As for that hint, I guess I would say that you might want to listen to Pearl Jam or The Rolling Stones before you solve today’s puzzle. Subtle enough? We shall see, I suppose.
And the answer is…
Yes, the color, but I was referring to the songs, Black and Paint it Black. Black is one of a few different colors that could potentially be Wordle answers, though I don’t remember seeing any others so far. GREEN, WHITE, uh BLUES could all be answers.
As for today’s puzzle, I started with my usual CRANE, which got me the A in the right place and a C somewhere in there. From there I couldn’t think of any other guesses so I did MOATS just for some letter elimination, which uh, certainly eliminated letters, but also did not do anything else besides that. And yeah I know there was no C in there. However, I sat down, put my thinking cap on and eventually got to BLACK. Kind of an odd format as we don’t see too many CK ending words. So maybe people will have some trouble with this one, I’m not sure.
Anyway, that’s all Wordle has for us today, so we will see you tomorrow for another go at it.
