Today’s Wordle Word of The Day Hints & Answer #287: April 2, 2022

Today's Wordle Word Of The Day Hints & Answer #277: March 23

Today’s Wordle — #287 for Saturday, April 2, 2022 — is as good a way as any to trundle through the early days of spring. Is it technically, officially spring yet? I never remember the exact date. Either way, the snow is melting in certain parts of the world, and people can at least start opening their windows to let the fresh air in again. Seeing as most people play Wordle in the evening or early morning, however, you might need some indoor activities just before or after work. Hence our little Wordle guide with hints (and the full answer under the spoiler warning below) to help you keep your streak.

As we just explained, we’re going to give some hints before sharing the answer. If you just want said answer, scroll to the bottom. It’s right there in bold text below the aforementioned “SPOILER WARNING.” For those of you who just want a tiny nudge in the right direction, the next section includes both some easy hints (whether the word is a noun or a verb, a very broad category of what it could be, etc.) followed by some more specific clues. The latter should all but tell you what the word is.

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!
