Today's 'Wordle' hints

As the title suggests, you may just be here to get some hints for today's Wordle without actually wanting to see the answer itself. I got quite lucky with today's answer, but that's rarely the case, and I could often do with some hints when attempting to solve the game.

Here are a few hints that might give you just enough to get there yourself, but if not, don't worry, as I managed to solve today's Wordle, and I've provided the solution above.

  • The answer starts with the letter H.
  • The definition of the word 'raise (one's shoulders) and bend the top of one's body forward.'
  • The word has one vowel.

Today's 'Wordle' answer on March 5th

Wordle is extremely difficult most days, given you have six guesses to correctly guess a word from a list of one in twelve thousand, so I wouldn't be ashamed if you had to get to this point. It can feel a bit unfair to lose your streak over one obscure word, which is why we update this Wordle answer guide each day.

WARNING: Coming up next is today's Wordle answer, so be warned. This is your last chance to back off before you see it, but if you want to, here it is. Do as you will, no judgments from us.

Here is today's Wordle answer. We hope the hints helped you, if you chose to use them, but if not, at least your streak should live another day. 

Today's Wordle for Tuesday, March 5th, is HUNCH.

I failed today’s game and the first one I have failed in a long time, I started with ‘water’ and ‘glyph’ which only gave me one green. I then went for ‘sound’ to try and eliminate more letters, giving me two yellows. Next, I tried ‘lunch’ to place some and this gave me four greens to work with, however, there were too many words I could put and after trying two more with a different first letter I failed.

There we have it, today's Wordle hints and the answer itself, we hope you found it useful, but if you need help with any other popular word games, we also have many more word game guides in our Word Games section on the site, which includes the New York Times other games with the Connections answers and Spelling Bee answers.
