The solution to today’s Wordle puzzle (#465 – September 27, 2022 ) is soggy. If something is waterlogged or drenched in excess moisture, it is soggy. A thing is also soggy if it is so lifeless or boring that it makes you want to pinch yourself consistently just to get some feeling. The word soggy is derived from dialectal English “sog,” which means swamp.
We went with the word “grave” as our starting guess today, a choice that WordleBot surprisingly endorsed — it’s not on the official list of recommended starter words, but WordleBot said it’s a solid choice and a “good guess for any Wordle.” Next, we tried the word “bling,” which turned out to be an unlucky, “inefficient” guess. Our luck did not improve on the next two turns, “thugs” and “slogs” turned out incorrect as well, but by the fifth turn we had enough information to make the correct guess. We hope you have much better luck.
