Sunday, April 24, clue and solution

Welcome to another installment of Wordle, the game that can be as harrowing as any Elden Ring race if you’re down to the last guess. Well, at least that’s how I felt today as I only got word today on my sixth guess. I also played Elden Ring a lot, so the comparison seemed fair to me.

I’m very curious to see what people think of today’s word, as it’s a trickier word that probably won’t come to many people’s minds without some pretty elaborate guesses or specific context. We’ll see how it goes, though, and the answer can be found below. But first…

Today’s Wordle #309 Answer and Hint

Alright, before we go any further, I’m going to preface this with a big spoiler warning in case you end up on this answer page, or just want a hint instead. As for this clue? I would say if you have a science background or were pretty good at it in school, you might be ahead of the competition today.

And the answer is…

Inert!

Inert is what I think of when I think of noble gases or other scientific stuff. The official definition of inert is “not having the ability or strength to move”, so technically that could apply to me waking up in the morning every day.

As you can see, this was a very close call and a rare full six guess attempt for me. But I pulled it out at the last minute, and even the NYT puzzle display is relieved, apparently. So how did I get there?

I started with CRANE, my usual choice, and it took me far too long to think of a second qualifying word, which was ENTER, not ideal as it uses two Es, but at least it added a T to my RNE and it showed the N was in the right place. And then I just started throwing guesses that I knew were wrong to narrow things down >UNTIE got me the I and from there I didn’t realize I already had all the letters, because I forget that the R existed at all. From there I did INTEL to confirm that the I was the leading vowel. Then I thought I had it in the back with INEPT, until I remembered I forgot the R from four guesses ago, then I got INERT. Wow, indeed.
