Today's 'Wordle' Guide: #358 Answer and Clues for Sunday, June 12 Puzzle

The Wordle puzzle answer for Sunday June 12 is simple enough but could prove elusive if your first guesses aren't as revealing as you would like.

Wordle requires players to solve the popular puzzle by guessing a mysterious five-letter word—in six tries or fewer. Many fans of the game have taken to posting on Twitter to show off how many tries it took them to guess the answer correctly.

The game refreshes each day, with a new word needing to be worked out using color-coded clues.

With multiple strategies and tactics to incorporate into your Wordle routine, some days your first couple of guesses aren't as fruitful as you might hope.

To avoid breaking that streak, it is best to be adaptable and consider new strategies.

The game's developer, Josh Wardle, likes to spend his first few tries eliminating as much of the alphabet as he can.

Wardle created Wordle in conjunction with his partner Palak Shah. The pair began working on Wordle in 2013 and later returned to the project in their spare time while the world was in lockdown during the COVID pandemic.

Whatever your game plan, now and again we could all do with a hint. Check out some tips below that can help you solve the June 12 puzzle.
