It’s possible, as with any Wordle puzzle, that a particularly advantageous choice of starting word will cause a cluster of previously hidden yellow and green tiles to suddenly become visible. Still, it’s also possible that your initial guesses won’t yield any useful information at all, forcing you to scramble to find a solution before you run out of chances.
As we all have our own methods and go-to words, the degree of difficulty will also vary. To give you an idea, game designer Josh Wardle (who doesn’t know the answers in advance because they are randomised) loves to spend his first few tries deleting as much of the alphabet as possible.
This year, Wordle’s popularity has skyrocketed. When it released to the public in October 2021, it had just 90 active users. Now, it’s so popular that The New York Times Company, which already published its own crossword, paid seven figures to acquire it.

Wordle #244 Tips for February 18
You can find out what the February 18 Word of the Day is at the bottom of this post. Before we get to that, here are some indications that can help you work it out on your own.
- One hint for Wordle #244: the presence of a recurring consonant may prove to be a difficult obstacle to overcome. The concerned letter appears in the first and fourth tiles, respectively.
- To give you a second clue, the second and fifth letters of the solution also start with a vowel.
- Third, the word “Doggy” can be a good place to start because it reveals three green tiles.
- Fourthly, if you’ve seen a specific 2004 sports comedy film (the title of which contains the solution), you might associate this word with “Duck,” “Dip,” and “Dive.”
Wordle #244 is another hint that rhymes with “Lodge.”
6th hint: Merriam-Webster defines Wordle #244 as “the act of escaping through quick physical movement.”
