SPOILER WARNING: Wordle hints and today’s answer are below, so don’t read on if you don’t want to see them.

Wordle hints (game #833) – clue #1 – Vowels

How many vowels does today’s Wordle have?

Wordle today has a vowel in one place*.

* Note that by vowel we mean the five standard vowels (A, E, I, O, U), not Y (which is sometimes counted as a vowel too). 

Wordle hints (game #833) – clue #2 – first letter

What letter does today’s Wordle begin with?

The first letter in today’s Wordle answer is D.

D is the ninth most common starting letter in the game, so maybe slightly less likely than you might expect. 

Wordle hints (game #833) – clue #3 – repeated letters

Does today’s Wordle have any repeated letters?

There are repeated letters in today’s Wordle.

Repeated letters are quite common in the game, with 748 of the 2,309 Wordle answers containing one. However, it’s still more likely that a Wordle doesn’t have one.

Wordle hints (game #833) – clue #4 – ending letter

What letter does today’s Wordle end with?

The last letter in today’s Wordle is Y.

Y is the second most common ending letter in the game, behind only E. In total, 364 Wordle answers end with a Y.

Today’s Wordle answer (game #833) is… DADDY.

In the whole of Wordledom there are only 20 solutions (out of the original 2,309) that contain a three-times-repeated letter. Today is one of those 20 games.

We’ve had four of them before, namely SISSY (game #2), FLUFF (#382), MUMMY (#491) and NANNY (#714). And based on what’s gone before, it’s no surprise that today’s puzzle is catching out a lot of people.

WordleBot, the NYT’s helper tool, records the average score of all games played, giving us a very good idea of each puzzle’s relative difficulty. We don’t have an average score for SISSY, because it was just the third game ever (the first was game #0, if you’re confused why this is #2) and it appeared before the tool’s launch. But we have a figure for the other three, and they’re 4.7 for FLUFF, 5.8 for MUMMY and 5.2 for NANNY – that’s a whopping overall average of 5.2. 

It should therefore be no surprise that DADDY also has a very high average score, in this case 4.9. That it’s slightly lower than MUMMY is probably down to the fact that A is a more common letter than U, though that doesn’t explain why NANNY was also higher.

Anyway, this was undoubtedly a tough one – the equal eighth hardest in 2023 so far, and the most difficult in September. Nor was it one where the best Wordle starting words made a huge amount of difference. Only three of the top 20 left fewer than 100 possible solutions, and only one of those, TRADE, made any real dent in that number, leaving just 13. Oh, and AUDIO, which isn’t one of the best options but which is popular, left 25, and that will have brought down the average a little.

My choice, STARE, was next-to-useless, leaving 186 possible answers. However, I was once again helped out by my choice of second word. Optimizing this is almost as important as getting your first guess right, if you want to maximize your average score. 

Of course, some people don’t take this quite so seriously as I do – and I admit that it takes away a little of the fun from the game to always be so strategic. Then again, without a good second guess today, you might well have scored a dreaded fail.

Anyway, with a single yellow A in place, I knew to play BADLY, which has regularly come up trumps for me in the past. Today it performed admirably, giving me a green A, green D and green Y and reducing my answers list from 186 to a mere three.

As it happens, WordleBot and I disagreed about what three words these were. We both had CADDY and DADDY, but WordleBot said PADDY was also an option while I had written down FADDY. It didn’t matter in the end, but that could have hurt me.

I was tempted to play a narrowing-down-word next, to guarantee a four, but decided instead that as there was now no chance of me failing, I would instead shoot for a 3/6. But which to play? Well, I went with CADDY because the Ryder Cup is currently underway and I thought the NYT might have dropped in a golf-related term. That was wrong, but I played DADDY next and scored a 4/6 anyway.

Yesterday’s Wordle hints (game #832)

In a different time zone where it’s still Friday? Don’t worry – I can give you some clues for Wordle #832, too.

  • Wordle yesterday had vowels in three places.

* Note that by vowel we mean the five standard vowels (A, E, I, O, U), not Y (which is sometimes counted as a vowel too). 

  • The first letter in yesterday’s Wordle answer was A.

A is a reasonably common starting letter in Wordle: 140 games begin with this letter. It ranks 6th among starting letters, behind S, C, B, T and P.

  • There were no repeated letters in yesterday’s Wordle.

Repeated letters are quite common in the game, with 748 of the 2,309 Wordle answers containing one. However, it’s still more likely that a Wordle doesn’t have one.

  • The last letter in yesterday’s Wordle was E.

E is the most common letter to end a Wordle answer by far. That’s one of the reasons why many of the best start words, including SLATE, CRANE, CRATE and STARE, all end with one.

  • Yesterday’s Wordle answer is a color.

Yesterday’s Wordle answer (game #832) was… AZURE.

Right then, let’s talk about Z. It’s the fourth least common letter in the game, ahead of only X, Q and J. It appears in just 40 Wordle answers in total, out of the original 2,309 at least; it’s possible the NYT will add some extra ones in. 

You wouldn’t necessarily expect one, then. But today’s game is worse than that, because this Z is in position #2 in the word. There are only two games that have that positioning – I don’t know for sure what the other one is, though I have a good guess. But what I am certain of is that it hasn’t already appeared. 

So today’s game is a first for Wordle. And all of this a long-winded way of saying that your brain may well have not planned for the possibility of that Z being there. And in turn, that’s one of the factors that will potentially have made today’s Wordle a tricky one. 

WordleBot, the NYT’s helper tool, says people are solving it in 4.1 guesses on average, making it among the trickiest puzzles we’ve had in September. FRANK, EXERT and GNASH were all at 4.3, DWELL and GIDDY at 4.2, but otherwise this is as tough as it’s been this month.

Or rather, it might have been. As always, your choice of starting word will have made a huge difference – and if you don’t use one of them at all, then good luck with today’s game. Of course, some people like to start with ADIEU or AUDIO, because they contain four vowels. This is generally not a wise move – there are far better options out there, as explained in my best Wordle starting words guide. But today, they were both helpful, with AUDIO leaving just 10 possible answers and ADIEU only five.

My choice, STARE, was also great today – I had only six to pick from, namely CADRE, ADORE, AZURE, AFIRE, PADRE and AFORE.

Now, I could lie here and say that I spotted all of those myself, but I didn’t. No, I only came up with two, ADORE and AZURE. But in fairness, who thinks of PADRE or AFIRE? Not me, obviously.

With (in my head) a 50/50 choice, I decided to simply play the most likely answer, which had to be ADORE; I was certain that would be in Wordle’s answer list, whereas AZURE seemed a little less likely. Anyway, ADORE was wrong but it confirmed that AZURE had to be the solution.

Or did it? In reality, no. Because the answer could still have been AFORE, but I’d missed that one. So I played AZURE thinking it was the only possible answer even though it wasn’t, but got lucky anyway and scored a 3/6 on a tough day. Result!

What is Wordle?

If you’re on this page then you almost certainly know what Wordle is already, and indeed have probably been playing it for a while. And even if you’ve not been playing it, you must surely have heard of it by now, because it’s the viral word game phenomenon that took the world by storm last year and is still going strong in 2023.

We’ve got a full guide to the game in our What is Wordle page, but if you just want a refresher then here are the basics.

What is Wordle?

Wordle challenges you to guess a new five-letter word each day. You get six guesses, with each one revealing a little more information. If one of the letters in your guess is in the answer and in the right place, it turns green. If it’s in the answer but in the wrong place, it turns yellow. And if it’s not in the answer at all it turns gray. Simple, eh? 

It’s played online via the Wordle website or the New York Times’ Crossword app (iOS / Android), and is entirely free. 

Crucially, the answer is the same for everyone each day, meaning that you’re competing against the rest of the world, rather than just against yourself or the game. The puzzle then resets each day at midnight in your local time, giving you a new challenge, and the chance to extend your streak.

What are the Wordle rules?

The rules of Wordle are pretty straightforward, but with a couple of curveballs thrown in for good measure.

1. Letters that are in the answer and in the right place turn green.

2. Letters that are in the answer but in the wrong place turn yellow. 

3. Letters that are not in the answer turn gray.

4. Answers are never plural.

5. Letters can appear more than once. So if your guess includes two of one letter, they may both turn yellow, both turn green, or one could be yellow and the other green.

6. Each guess must be a valid word in Wordle’s dictionary. You can’t guess ABCDE, for instance.

7. You do not have to include correct letters in subsequent guesses unless you play on Hard mode.

8. You have six guesses to solve the Wordle.

9. You must complete the daily Wordle before midnight in your timezone.

10. All answers are drawn from Wordle’s list of 2,309 solutions. However…

11. Wordle will accept a wider pool of words as guesses – some 10,000 of them. For instance, you can guess a plural such as WORDS. It definitely won’t be right (see point 4 above), but Wordle will accept it as a guess.
