We've got a list of hints for the Waffle answers today if you're not wanting to be fully spoiled, as sometimes all you need is a nudge in the right direction to get started. There are six words in total that you will have to figure out across the square grid, so it can be quite tricky to get them all in the least amount of turns.

  • Word #1: Two vowels, '(of an argument or point) having a sound basis in logic or fact; reasonable or cogent.'
  • Word #2: Two vowels, 'having many leaves or much foliage.'
  • Word #3: Three vowels, 'a person or animal who consumes food in a specified way or of a specified kind.'

  • Word #5: Two vowels, 'smallest in amount, extent, or significance.'

By default, Waffle will reset at midnight in the GMT time zone, although you can change this to midnight in your local time zone if that suits you better. However, you will need to finish your current game of Waffle before you can do this, as otherwise, that can cause some issues.

This schedule is perfect if you're wanting to integrate Waffle into your daily routine of word games, as it means that there will be a new challenge to tackle every morning as you wake up, or one waiting for you to work your way through during the day.

Can you play Waffle more than once?

Unfortunately, the standard Daily Waffle is only available to play once per day, but there are a few alternate routes that you can take if you can't get enough of the game.

You can always open up an incognito window on your browser to have a go at the game again - although this will have the exact same answers and will not be able to track your streaks in any form.

Alternatively, you could try out the Deluxe Waffle, which provides a larger, more complicated 7x7 grid for you to figure out. This is much harder to complete - even with the increased number of swaps - but it will be perfect for the hardcore Waffle lovers out there.

To jump straight into Waffle all you need to do is head to the game's homepage, from which you will be greeted with the Daily Waffle game. From there, you can select the menu by pressing the three lines in the top left, or you can start playing immediately.

While Waffle can look a little complicated to a new player, it is thankfully rather straightforward, fusing elements of the popular Wordle and crossword formulas we all know and love. If you're a first-time player though, you might still want to check out the Waffle rules below:

  • You will need to find the correct word for each of the six rows that span both vertically and horizontally across the grid.
  • Letters in the correct place are indicated with a green tile, letters that are part of the correct word but in the wrong place are indicated with a yellow tile, and incorrect letters are marked with a grey tile.
  • If a yellow tile sits at the intersection between two words, that means that it features within both but is in the incorrect place.
  • Move the letters around the grid to complete the words, but each time you swap a letter a turn will be used.
  • The highest scores are reserved for those who can get all answers in as few turns as possible.

You will quickly get the hang of the rhythm, and hopefully move through the grid at a pace, but if you ever get stuck just remember that we've got all of the answers above.

What are some other games like Waffle?

The closest games to Waffle are undoubtedly Wordle or Octordle, as it almost acts as the point in the middle of those games where you've got half a word and the rest to figure out.

A large part of the fun with Waffle comes from the challenge of juggling six different words at the same time, and it can be incredibly satisfying to have those green boxes line up like a Rubix cube near the end.

Furthermore, Waffle's other clear influence comes from the standard crossword games that have been loved for over a century now. While there are no clues to guess from and the letters are already there, the juggling of crosssections will definitely delight any crossword lover.

So, that's everything you need to know if you were looking for the Waffle answers today, letting you complete the daily puzzle and keep your streak alive.
