Wordle #413 Clues, Hints and Answer for Saturday, August 6 Game

Newsweek logo Newsweek 8/6/2022 Brendan Cole

Playing Wordle can be as big a part of your morning routine as having a coffee or catching up on the news. However, even the most experienced players can run into difficulty, which is why Newsweek is here to help get you over the finish line.

The premise is simple. You have six attempts to get a five-letter word, a correct letter in the right place lights up green, a correct letter in the wrong place turns yellow. Gray is the color of the tile, and perhaps your mood, if the letter is not in the word at all.

Tactics are all important. It is always good to start with a word with plenty of vowels, and leave those lesser used letters for later on.

Things can get tense by the fourth or fifth attempt if you feel you are a long way from getting the answer, but if you do succeed a box appears showing your track record. You can then share it with your friends and shout it from the rooftops, or keep it to yourself if you fail.

Created by software engineer Josh Wardle, the game was released to little fanfare at the end of last year. But its growth has been exponential, and its global reach assured when The New York Times bought it for an undisclosed sum.

It is now played by tens of millions of people worldwide as this graph below by Statista highlights.

Other Wordle-inspired puzzles include the music-based Heardle, the math-based Nerdle, and the challenging Quordle, which requires players to solve four words in just nine attempts.
