Wordle #228 is a bit of a curveball after the last couple of puzzles were relatively straightforward. If you want some clues to make it a little easier, Newsweek has prepared a handy guide.
The difficulty of Wordle can fluctuate wildly. Sometimes the answer is quite obvious, like it was on February 1, while on other days it can leave you scratching your head as you try in vain to whittle down the entire alphabet, only to realize that you needed a “Q” or a “V” all along.
If you don’t find at least a couple of green blocks in your initial attempts, then it can often feel like you have no hope of victory whatsoever. However, the game’s developer, Josh Wardle, has posited that learning which letters are wrong can be just as useful as learning which ones are right.
In other words, there is no such thing as a “bad guess” in Wordle, as you will always get some kind of valuable information. That being said, if you are really struggling with the #228 puzzle on Wednesday, February 2, then it might be worth checking out our tips below.
