It’s Wednesday, the clock has struck midnight, and there’s a brand new Wordle puzzle to solve. Recent puzzles have been criticised for being too hard, specifically since The New York Times purchased the rights to the game. Fortunately, Express Online is here to make your Wordle puzzle solving that little bit easier, courtesy of three spoiler-free hints and clues to help you solve Wordle 270 for March 16. Just head down to the bottom of the page for the hints, and remember not to share the answer with people in the comments. Good luck!
Wordle is a pretty straightforward game, but just in case you’re new to the popular pastime, this is how it works.
Fans are given six chances to correctly guess a five-letter word. For each guess, the letter tiles will show up in one of three colours. If the letter tile turns grey, the letter does not appear in the word you are guessing.
If the tile turns yellow, the letter you guessed is in the word, just not in the correct position. If the tile turns green, the letter is in the word and in the right place.
You can share your score on social media (for bragging rights), while the app keeps track of your statistics.
On the flipside, if you fail to solve the puzzle, then you’ll have to wait until the next day for a new Wordle to be released.
