Today's 'Wordle' Word of The Day: #283 Answer and Hints—March 29

Wordle can be tough to figure out some days, particularly when its word repeats certain letters unexpectedly, such as in answers like "vivid".

The puzzle game provides players with some help towards reaching the correct end result by using a color-coded system: Grey for when the letter isn't in the word; green when it's in the right place; and yellow when it's in the word but it's in the wrong spot.

While this is certainly useful, sometimes a hint of two could be the tipping point players need to guess the right word of the day, so Newsweek has collated a number of clues to assist.

The answer for today's Wordle is also at the end of this article—simply scroll to the bottom if you wish to see what the word is.

Wordle was created by Josh Wardle who made it public in October 2021, and it quickly became a global phenomenon and gained over 45 million users after starting out with just 90 active players.

Wardle sold the puzzle game to The New York Times in January 2022 and the publication took ownership of Wordle in February.
