'Wordle' #315 Answer and Clues: How To Solve Saturday April 30 Word Puzzle

It may be only five letters long but the Wordle brain teaser can still leave you at sixes and sevens.

But don't worry, Newsweek has put together some clues to unfurrow those brows, although those of a less patient temperament can simply scroll down this page where all will be revealed.

The creation of software engineer Josh Wardle started from a game played by a few dozen people to a global phenomenon which is the daily mind fix of more than 45 million people.

The rules are simple and use a color-coded system to tell players when they have the right letter. If it's in the wrong place, the letter is yellow but green if it's in the right place.

A real test of your knowledge of language, it makes you work out letter combinations at the start and the end of the word.

"I think of myself as an artist, I really enjoy creating things," Wardle said of his game which has inspired a number of other daily puzzles, such as the globe-trotting game Worldle and the math-based Nerdle.

Its global reach was assured when he sold it to The New York Times Company for an undisclosed seven-figure sum. Since February it has become a feature of the publication's platform.

The graph below, from Statista, shows the extent to which Wordle has gained in popularity since when Wardle originally owned the game.
