Wordle game displayed on a phone and a laptop screen.

Thursday! What a concept! And what a day to solve another Wordle. If you haven't found today's answer yet, we're not spoiling it... yet. But you can find it down the bottom of this post (scroll carefully to avoid the clearly marked spoilers). If you just want a few clues to help you get the answer, keep reading for some background, tips and strategies we've reported on here at Mashable.

Some background: Wordle was originally created by former Reddit engineer Josh Wardle and went super-viral in late 2021, becoming a daily habit for thousands of players around the globe. The game was bought by the New York Times earlier this year for a very big number of dollars, and is now run by the paper's puzzles and games team.

Have you wondered if Wordle is getting harder? Well, it isn't. If anything, it's easier, as the Times has regularly been cutting obscure words from the original list. But you can always switch Wordle to Hard Mode for an extra challenge.

Not the day you're after? Here's the Wordle answer for May 18.

What's a Heardle? A Dordle?? A Quordle?!

Wordle's simple, addictive format has inspired plenty of knock-offs, but also an endless stream of fun clones and variations, such as the battle royale Squabble, music identification game Heardle, and combo styles like Dordle and Quordle that have you trying to guess multiple words at once

Best Wordle starting word?

We have plenty of ideas that can help if your go-to isn't cutting it any more. If you just want to start with the absolute top most common letters in English, ETAOIN are the ones to look for; try something like PIANO, TONER, or NAIVE.

Fun fact: The whole archive of past Wordle puzzles is available to play right now if you want to get some extra practice in.

Why are there two different Wordle answers some days?

Half the fun of Wordle is that everyone gets the same word to guess every day — but occasionally two different answers can both be correct. This is due to changes the New York Times made after acquiring the game. As we've reported already, just last week a word was swapped out because it was unexpectedly topical. Make sure you refresh your browser before you play each day.

And now, a subtle hint for today’s Wordle

There's a double letter today!

Today’s 5-letter word starts with…

Gee whiz, it's the letter G.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
