Wordle Today #462 Hints, Clues And Answer: Saturday, September 24th

It’s Autumn at last. Friday marked the first full day of the new season and now summer really is in our rearview mirrors. As my friend, Ned, might say: Winter is coming.

So is Halloween, Thanksgiving—soon, Christmas will descend upon us, first in the form of advertisements for holiday sales, then in sparkling lights and frosted lawns.

I honestly can’t believe September is almost over. I thought August went by fast, but this is next level. It’s like we time-traveled through this month. Blink and you miss it.

So far, the fall season has seen not just a drop in temperatures, but in Wordle challenge levels. The back half of the summer had some extremely challenging words, but these first autumnal Wordles have been pretty easy. Today’s, for instance . . . .

Wordle #462 Answer, Hint & Clue

The Warning: Yeah there are spoilers in this post. Keep going and you’ll be spoiled.

The Hint: You can prepare cheese or carrots this way.

The Clue: This word rhymes with one of Wordle Bot’s favorite starting words.

The Answer:

Today I’m showing you my answers compared to Wordle Bot’s. We tied, which is pretty common, despite Wordle Bot’s constant criticism of my choices.

I was pretty stoked when I saw three green boxes in a row on my first guess. I chose grain entirely randomly and had this moment where I thought I might get an answer on just one guess. Alas, no such luck.

According to Wordle Bot I had just 15 guesses left, but at the time I thought it was much lower (an early success can be deceptive). Still, I went with my gut and guessed grape which got me the E at the back and left me with just 5 choices, though at the time I could only think of one: Grate for the win!

Of course, there were other options like grave, grace and so forth, so I really did get lucky with a 1 in 5 guess, but I’ll take it! A little luck goes a long ways in this life.
