Still uncertain? The answer to today’s Wordle puzzle (#638 — March 19, 2023) is credo. A credo is a formula of belief or a system of principles. According to Merriam-Webster, the word is purely Latin, and it literally translates to “I believe.” Per the same source, it is the first word of many religious creeds, including the Apostles’ Creed and the Nicene Creed.
It took five tries to crack the code today, so it was a really close shave. Our opening guess was the word swole, and that turned two tiles yellow and shrunk the possible answer pool to 123. After the second guess, “peony,” the probability of guessing the right answer was 1 in 57. Our third try, “acrid,” reduced that number to just two, but we made an incorrect fourth guess, “coder,” before the answer became evident. We hope your journey to green tiles is quicker and more straightforward, and if you’re itching for more puzzles, here are other games like Wordle to keep you busy.
