Today's 'Wordle' Word of the Day #361 Answer and Clues - Wednesday, June 15

Wordle is the notoriously tricky daily word game, giving puzzle lovers the chance at solving the word of the day in just six attempts.

The New York Times-owned word-guessing game took the internet by storm after it was released by software engineer Josh Wardle late in 2021. Wardle began creating the game back in 2013, and completed it during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The game uses a color-coded system which indicates how close a player is to guessing the five-letter answer. It's a process of elimination, and a good strategy for your first guess is to choose a word that contains as many vowels as possible.

A green tile indicates that a player has guessed the correct letter in the correct spot, a yellow tile means that the player has selected a letter that features in the word of the day, but in the incorrect place. Finally, a gray tile means that the player has selected a letter that is incorrect altogether, and therefore that letter is not part of the world of the day at all.
