Today's Wordle Word of the Day: #350 Answer and Hints for Saturday, June 4

The daily fix of Wordle always comes with a few sticking points, which is why Newsweek is here to help get you across the line.

The rules are simple. You get six attempts at a five-letter word, and each correct letter in the right place lights up green while a correct letter in the wrong place turns yellow.

The letters that are not in the word are gray and the color code should bring players closer and closer to the answer with each attempt, as you rack your brains for every vowel and consonant combination you can muster.

If you finally get the answer, a statistics box appears showing your track record in the game.

Engineer Josh Wardle came up with the game which he honed during COVID lockdown. His partner Palak Shah looked at the 12,000 five-letter words possible in English and narrowed them down to 2,500 which are used in the puzzle.

Punning on Wardle's name, the game's global reach was assured when The New York Times bought the puzzle. It has inspired several other daily word games ending in "-dle", in homage to the original, such as Heardle and Crosswordle.

Initially played by a few dozen people, it is now the go-to game for tens of millions around the world.
