'Wordle' #330 Answer: Hints And Tips To Solve Sunday, May 15, Puzzle

Wordle puzzles regularly test veteran players and newcomers alike, which is why Newsweek has put together some hints and tips for those who think they need a little help to work out the five-letter answer.

The rules to Wordle are relatively simple and follow a color-coded system that players use to work out the answer within six attempts.

In Wordle, green tiles show the player has selected the correct letter and that it is in the right place, a yellow tile represents the letter is correct but in the wrong place while a gray tile means the letter is not in the word at all.

Wordle resets each day, which means players who were unable to solve the puzzle only have to wait a few hours before they can try again with a new five-letter word.

When it first launched in October 2021, the game counted an estimated 90 people among its active player base but quickly grew into a worldwide phenomenon with 45 million daily users.
