Wordle 293’s answer was Scare. It was also another example of how we’re in the golden age of Wordle. Whoever has been picking the Wordles has been doing a fantastic job of picking out letters that aren’t so common and using them in a way that convinces me that I need to enter a W and a V in almost every puzzle for the last week. Even though it’s starting to look like that isn’t the case any longer. I’m onto you. The second I drop my guard, I know those letters are coming back.
Adieu gave me A and E in the hue of yellow. My alternate take on Warts, Waste, kept the A yellow, but flipped the E to green. It also gave me a yellow S.
Shave was my next guess. Convinced that one of those tricky letters had to be in there. Also, H has been making several appearances as of late. I was wrong. At least I know the word started with S.
Space seemed like a good choice. To some degree it was. While the P stayed gray, the C went yellow. Which at this point in time, it may as well be green. If you know what I mean.
I typed in Scale and almost hit enter. It just didn’t feel right. I backspaced a bit and hit enter on Scare.
All was green and all was good.
