Wordle 287 is available for the next 24-hours, so you’d better get thinking if you want to solve the latest puzzle. The April 2 Word puzzle isn’t the hardest, although judging by some of the responses on social media, some people are having problems with a couple of the letters. If you’re struggling with Wordle 287 for April 2, then scroll down for a selection of spoiler-free hints to help you find the answer. Good luck, and here’s hoping your streak remains intact for another day.
If you already know how to play Wordle, then you can probably skip this part. If you’re new to the game, this is how it works.
Players are given six chances to figure out a different five-letter word each day. You’ll need to use the process of elimination to solve the puzzle, which means paying attention to the color of the tiles.
For every guess, the letter tiles will show up in one of three colors. If the 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.
If you really want a challenge, Wordle features a hard mode, which bans players from guessing letters that have already been ruled out. It’s risky, however, because if you fail to solve the puzzle, then you’ll have to wait until the next day for a new Wordle to be released.
