The answer to today’s Wordle puzzle is cinch, which can mean one of three things: a strap that holds a saddle on a horse, a super tight grip, or a thing done with ease (via Merriam-Webster). Ironically, it wasn’t such a cinch to arrive at the answer.
We started off with the word broad, which the WordleBot called a solid choice, but it was a particularly unlucky start because it only cut down the possible solutions to a whopping 410 — that’s not particularly encouraging when you only have five tries left. Thankfully, we turned three tiles green with our second guess, mince, which cut down the possible solutions to just four (and was spectacular, if we do say so ourselves). After trying the words pinch and finch, we got the answer on the fifth try, which isn’t too far from the 4.3 guess average of the day. Hopefully, because of this article, you can finish in fewer tries than we did.
