April Fool’s Day is the worst, right? You have absolutely no idea what you can believe online and no one’s elaborate joke is funny. Wait that’s a lot like every other day. Anyway! Wordle is here and it’s not lying to you. It’s not playing a prank. It’s not going to steer you wrong. It’s just here to provide a fun little puzzle. If you have a tough time with it, we’re here to give you some hints and the final answer if those don’t work for you. So let’s get into today’s Wordle #286 for Friday, April 1, 2022.
As we just explained, we’re going to give some hints before sharing the answer. If you want the answer, scroll to the bottom and it’ll be right there in bold text. For those of you who want a little nudge in the right direction, our hints section below has both some easy hints (whether the word is a noun or a verb, etc) and some more specific hints that should all but tell you what the word is.
Wordle of the Day #286 Hints
In this section, we try to keep things vague and only point you in the right direction. Hints at this stage will be more about the meaning of the word, rather than any specific letters that are used in the word itself. We also won’t use other methods like “rhymes with,” “sounds similar to,” and the like. More specific hints are included just after that — finally followed by the full solution. Figured we’d just warn you one last time!
These first hints will steer you in a general direction without giving too much away!
Is a noun
Is a part of an animal’s body
See? Not too much detail there! Hopefully the Wordle machine in your brain is waking up without us being too obvious!
More Specific Hints
You still totally get credit even if you need these beefier hints. Let’s dive a bit deeper and more specific for today’s puzzle.
Is part of a mammal’s face used to smell
If a badger gave you an obvious clue you wouldn’t say it was “on the nose” but rather “on the _____”
