The solution to today’s Wordle puzzle (#521 – November 22, 2022) is the main one. Something is prime if it is of the highest possible quality, or if it is highly significant for a subject or event. Prime can also refer to the first hour of the day, usually 6 a.m. (from Roman canonical practice) or that of sunrise. The word comes from Old French “prime” and directly from Latin “primus”, literally meaning first part, but also figuratively translating to “chief, chief; excellent, distinguished, or noble” (via etymonline).
Luck was on our side today — we solved the puzzle in four tries. Our initial guess was the word, face, a tile turned yellow and narrowed down the possible answer words from the standard 2,315 to 103. Next, we tried the word clamp, which sharply reduced the possible solutions to just two. Next, we tried the word spike, after which there was only one possible answer. WordleBot solved the puzzle in four tries, although its process was different. We hope you finish quickly, and if you want to try your hand at more puzzles, here are some more games like Wordle.
