The answer to Saturday, April 2’s Wordle puzzle may be a little unfamiliar but Newsweek is here to offer some tips on how the solve the latest offering from the incredibly popular word game.

Wordle doesn’t have a calculated difficulty curve, unlike most games. Its designer, Josh Wardle,curated a list of 2,500 daily brainteasers before launching the website but they’re not structured in any particular order.

The sequence for Wordle has been totally randomized so that Wardle can play along just like any other player without having an unfair advantage. He originally devised the game so he and his partner could play during lockdown.

That random nature means sometimes players are faced with a somewhat tricky puzzle and Wordle #287 could pose difficulties for some but Newsweek is here to help.

Before diving into Saturday’s puzzle, it’s always worth noting the incredible popularity that Wordle has enjoyed.
