It’s after midnight on March 29, so put down that Mogwai Chow and pick up a fresh new Wordle. You never know when you’re going to need a little helping hand, so we’ve got the answer word below, as well as a few hints to give you a chance to solve it spoiler-free before you get there.

If you just want the answer word, please and thank you, you’ll find today’s Wordle solution right down the bottom of this post. If you want a few clues first to nudge you in the direction of the answer, as well as general Wordle tips, strategies, and info, you’ll find those on the way down.

Created by engineer Josh Wardle as a gift for his partner and later bought by the New York Times in a seven-figure deal, Wordle has gone mega-viral and inspired countless clones and variations on the basic guessing format. Try the truly evil bizarro-Wordle known as Absurdle, the nerdy Primel, the multi-game variants that add up to the 31-word Grand Slam (aka Untrigintordle, which I know is not a name that’s likely to catch on but is nonetheless the correct one).

What’s the answer to Wordle today?

OK, we’ll tell you!

Ready?

It is…

SHALL.

This is one of those words you’ve read a thousand times (as mentioned, it’s in the Constitution, as well as the Bill of Rights and loads of other legal documents and old-fashioned books) but it’s easy to forget about given it’s probably not one you’d use often otherwise (unless you’re fancy and/or British). Some nice common letters in there, but a sneaky double that tripped up a few people in the Wordle group chat.

Couldn’t get there on your own? There’s always tomorrow. We shall be here.
