The answer to today’s Wordle puzzle (#451 – September 13, 2022) is alpha. Apart from the definitions we’ve provided above, it also describes the “closest in the structure of an organic molecule to a particular group or atom,” according to Merriam-Webster. For those who are particularly curious, the word alpha is from Latin and Greek “alpha,” and from Hebrew or Phoenician “aleph,” all being the first letter of the respective alphabets.
WordleBot said it took most players an average of 4.3 tries to figure out the solution word today, but we solved it a little quicker: in four tries, the same as WordleBot. We used the word “slive” as an unusual but strategic starting guess, then tried the words clamp and plaza before figuring out alpha, which is a tad ironic because the word means first, but we guessed it last. Here’s a cool thing we hope this article can help you do: solve the puzzle in one try, so you can brag to your friends about being the alpha in the group!
