'Wordle' #235 Answer: Today's Word of The Day Clues To Solve February 9 Crossword Puzzle

Wordle #235 might pose a challenge for a lot of players, especially if your go-to starting word doesn't reveal many yellow or green tiles. To help you find the answer for this latest puzzle, Newsweek has prepared the following guide with useful hints and tips.

When it comes to solving the word of the day, there is no right or wrong strategy in Wordle. The game's developer, Josh Wardle, has even suggested that it might be worth using up your first few attempts trying to guess the maximum number of letter combinations, so that you can eliminate as much of the alphabet as possible. In his own words: "It's often just as important to learn what letters aren't in a word. That information can actually be more powerful in a lot of ways."

That being said, there is obviously a competitive element to Wordle, with the aim being to share the best results grid on social media (impressing all of your friends and family). As such, you'll probably want to prioritize getting those satisfying green tiles in your opening guess.

Doing so is particularly tricky with the February 9 puzzle, however, as your starting word is unlikely to have much overlap with the solution here.

Before we continue, it's worth reflecting on the immense popularity of Wordle and how it has flourished in such a short space of time. At the start of November, the webpage (hosted on powerlanguage.co.uk) had an average of just 90 visitors and now it is attracting millions of people every single day. This extraordinary growth is illustrated in the below graphic from Statista.
