Welcome to a new episode of Wordle where we have about 1800 five letter words before we go any further. Yes, it will take a while, but lately we’ve had a bit of a string of easier words, rather than things you have to look up. This is definitely a word you will know, but it’s not always how hard the word is, it’s how your guesses determine the progress of the clues, so we’ll see how you do it.
I’ve kept my Wordle streak alive since I lost it a week or so ago. What can I say? A newborn’s lack of sleep greatly affects my Wordle skill. But I suppose it also keeps my mind sharp as I push through the plume of fatigue and overlook the fact that my veins are mostly caffeine right now.

Today’s Wordle #295 Reply and Hint
This is a spoiler warning for those of you who ended up here by accident and just want a hint instead. As for that hint, I think I’d say you might want to listen to Pearl Jam or The Rolling Stones before solving today’s puzzle. Subtle enough? We’ll see, I suppose.
And the answer is…
Yes, the color, but I was referring to the numbers, Black and Paint it Black. Black is one of the few different colors that could potentially be Wordle answers, although I haven’t been able to recall any other so far. GREEN, WHITE, uh BLUE can all be answers.
As for today’s puzzle, I started with my usual TAP, which put the A in the right place and a C somewhere in there. From there I couldn’t think of any other guesses, so I did MOATS just for some letter removal, some letters for sure but also did nothing but that. And yes, I know there was no C in it. However, I sat down, put on my thinking cap and finally came up with BLACK. A bit of an odd format as we don’t see too many CK end words. So maybe people are having some trouble with this, I’m not sure.
Anyway, that’s all Wordle has for us today, so we’ll see you tomorrow for another try.
