Today’s Wordle answer isn’t too difficult to solve, but it’s certainly not a commonly used word. There do seem to be certain aspects of a word that can make them more difficult and many have shown that knowing an answer is difficult actually makes the Wordle easier to solve. For those that want an even bigger challenge, the game offers a Hard Mode that can be activated in the options menu. This simply removes the ability to use any letters that have been proven incorrect or rearrange any letters proven to be correct. Playing in this mode forces the players to use critical thinking to guess the answer instead of relying on a combination of words, or random guesses.

Today’s Wordle Answer (May 8th #323)
The May 8th Wordle answer is CANNY.
Canny has a couple of different definitions, on one hand, it means having good judgment, generally in money or business, on the other, it means being a nice or polite person. For our starting Wordle word we used IRATE. This gave us only an incorrectly placed ‘A’ and a few incorrect letters. Our second guess was BLACK, which was a bit of a mistake since we placed the ‘A’ in the same incorrect spot, but it did give us another letter with a wrongly placed ‘C’. Our third attempt was CAPON, this provided the correct spot for both ‘A’ and ‘C’ and added an incorrectly placed ‘N’. For our fourth guess we tried CANDY, this got us even closer to the correct answer by solidifying the ‘N’ and adding a correctly placed ‘Y’. Finally, we nailed it in five guesses and got CANNY, the correct answer to today’s Wordle.
