Well it’s here at last: The final day of the first month of 2022. Monday kicks off a new week and wraps up an old month, as January bows out and February brings a new month of puzzling to our daily grind.
For those of us who love word puzzles, Wordle has brought a fun little diversion into our lives. Every day there’s a new puzzle to solve on the game’s official website. You won’t find it on the App Store or Google Play or anywhere else. It’s free, ad-free and doesn’t require any sort of signup or subscription.
And since Wordle only offers up one word per day, it’s surprisingly non-addictive! All of this is profoundly refreshing in today’s mobile game scene (note: You can play on your phone, tablet or PC).
For those of you just getting started, I have you covered with the following two articles.
In this first one, I discuss the game’s origin and how to play:
In this next article, I discuss several tips to help you get started solving your daily Wordle:
Today’s Wordle Word Of The Day #226 Solution
As always, before I get to today’s solution I offer you both a hint and a spoiler warning. As the headline and subheadline of this post imply, I will be providing the answer for today’s Wordle below. The solution is forthcoming. If you don’t want to know, avoid reading further. Or just read the following hint to nudge you along the way:
This was a pretty easy one except that once I got four letters in the right spot it came down to a major guessing game that could have been thwarted had I guessed too many IGHT words before settling on LIGHT. Fortunately I knew ‘R’ was out (so no ‘RIGHT’ answer, as it were) as well as ‘S’ (get out of SIGHT!)
Going for ‘TIGHT’ was risky and didn’t pay off.
Still, even thought ‘NIGHT’ was also off the mark, I came to the ‘LIGHT’ before wasting any guesses on ‘FIGHT’ or ‘BIGHT’ (yes, it’s a thing and it doesn’t mean ‘BITE’) or ‘MIGHT’ or ‘WIGHT’—a word, had I used it for my final guess, that would have haunted me to my core.
In any case, hopefully this shone some light on today’s puzzle. And definitely check out The Left Hand Of Darkness by Ursula K LeGuin. It’s a terrific science fiction novel. Here’s the relevant quotation from the book:
“Light is the left hand of darkness
and darkness the right hand of light.
Two are one, life and death, lying
together like lovers in kemmer,
like hands joined together,
like the end and the way.”
Thanks for reading, fellow Wordlers! Swing back by later today for the daily ‘Etymology Notes From My Father’ update which I’ll add as soon as he sends them to me! Good luck!
