Wordle 423 – Hints and Answer for August 16, 2022
You have up to six tries to guess the correct word in Wordle. As you make each guess, the squares change to one of three different colors. If a box turns grey, that letter does not appear in the final word. Similarly, if a box turns yellow, the letter is in the final answer but is currently in the wrong spot. Lastly, if a square is green, you have the correct letter in that spot. This color-coding system also works if you use the same letter multiple times.
