Today's 'Wordle' Guide: #356 Answer and Clues for Friday, June 10 Puzzle

Wordle is the daily puzzle game that can leave you scratching your head, but luckily Newsweek has some hints to help you get over the line.

The challenge is to get a five-letter word in six attempts. If you get a correct letter, but in the wrong part of the word, it turns yellow. If it is correct and in the right part of the word, it turns green. Any letter that is not in the word, turns gray.

If you finally get the answer, a statistics box appears showing your track record in the game which you can share with others.

The brainteaser was the brainchild of software engineer Josh Wardle who started work on the project in 2013.

The COVID pandemic lockdown focused his mind, with the help of his partner Palak Shah. Shah looked at the 12,000 five-letter words possible in English and narrowed them down to 2,500, which gives about seven years worth of answers if you played the game every day.

The game was initially played by only a few dozen people when it was released to the public in October 2021.

Its global reach was assured when it was bought by The New York Times and within a few short months, it is now enjoyed and pored over by tens of millions of people.

Now with over 45 million users a day, it has also inspired other daily puzzles like the globe-trotting guessing game Worldle and the math-based Nerdle.
