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 #834) – clue #1 – Vowels

How many vowels does today’s Wordle have?

Wordle today has vowels in two 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). 

Wordle hints (game #834) – clue #2 – first letter

What letter does today’s Wordle begin with?

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

B is a very, very common starting letter in Wordle. In fact, it’s the third most common overall, behind only S and C. 

Wordle hints (game #834) – 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 #834) – clue #4 – ending letter

What letter does today’s Wordle end with?

The last letter in today’s Wordle is T.

T is a very common letter to end a Wordle answer – in fact only E and Y are more likely in that position.

Wordle hints (game #834) – clue #5 – last chance

Today’s Wordle answer (game #834) is… BERET.

We went repeated-letter-crazy with yesterday’s DADDY (see below) and we’re following up with another one today in BERET. Fortunately, BERET is nowhere near as hard a nut to crack as DADDY was – partly because the repeated letter only occurs twice, not three times, but also because that letter is an E.

E is the most common letter to be repeated in Wordle, and by a massive margin; there are 172 games in which it appears more than once, compared to less than half of that (81) for the next letter in the list, O.

That aside, it’s not too bad. B isn’t particularly common in the game in general (it’s ranked 18th overall), but it is very common at the start of an answer, where it’s the third most likely to appear, behind S and C. Meanwhile, R and T are both just very common overall.

Your task will have been made easier still if you used certain among the best Wordle starting words – namely CARTE, which left just eight possible solutions, and CARET, which left just two. Unfortunately, though they are among WordleBot’s favorite words (sixth and ninth respectively), they’re not among the words that are played by that many people. Far, far more Wordlers begin with ADIEU (which left 155 answers), STARE (40), AUDIO (244) or SLATE (114).

That combination of common letters, repeated E and mostly unhelpful start words add up here to a game which has an average score of 4.0, according to WordleBot. That makes it a Wordle that’s bang in the middle of the difficulty range – and one that I duly scored a 4/6 on.

Though I had 40 options to pick from, I didn’t know what they all were. Or rather, I didn’t make the effort to find them all. But I had a couple of dozen, and enough to identify that a very common format among them was an ER ending. For instance, I could have picked from METER, CUTER, TIGER, TRUER, TIMER, ENTER, INTER, TONER, TOWER, VOTER or DETER.

With that in mind, I played TONED – a word which didn’t include the R, in order that I could play an extra unused letter. This has worked nicely before with ER options, but it didn’t do so well today – it turned the E green but not the T, and didn’t give me any extra letters. WordleBot rather disdainfully told me afterwards that it wasn’t the best choice and that it would have played BERET instead. Ha! So would I if I had known what the answer was, WordleBot, so would I.

It also told me afterwards that I still had nine possible answers left, and that matched my own list fairly closely; I had CUTER, BITER, METER, PETER, BERET, RIVET, GREET and EGRET, though I knew EGRET had been a past Wordle answer. I didn’t have LITER, because I’m from the UK not the USA, and it didn’t occur to my weekend brain that it was an option.

Fortunately, that omission didn’t hurt me. For my third guess I played METER, partly because I wanted to establish whether this was an ER word or not, and partly because if it wasn’t then it should tell me whether there was a second E (as seen in GREET, BERET and PETER). And it did both. In fact, it ruled out all other options and left me with just BERET, which I played next for my 4/6.

Yesterday’s Wordle hints (game #833)

In a different time zone where it’s still Saturday? Don’t worry – I can give you some clues for Wordle #833, too.

  • Wordle yesterday had 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). 

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

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

  • There were 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 Y.

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

  • Yesterday’s Wordle answer is a familial relation.

Yesterday’s Wordle answer (game #833) was… 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 one 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 some of the others there is possibly because A is a more common letter than the U that’s in MUMMY and FLUFF, 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, but yet again, I was 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.

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.
