August 5th’s Wordle answer will throw many players off as it isn’t a fairly common word, making it challenging to solve. However, if players use strategic starting words or words that feature multiple vowels, they might be able to conserve their daily streak. While it will be an arduous task to achieve this in less than six attempts, players might have an easier time if they use an alternative mode.

Since most players don’t use Wordle’s hard mode, they might not be aware that this mode helps devise new strategies. In this mode, players are prevented from reusing confirmed letters in different spots. Therefore they are often forced to use obscure words. This is more time-consuming than the regular mode, but it is perfect for solving complicated words such as today’s answer.

    Wordle is a web-based word-guessing game developed by Josh Wardle that took the world by storm in 2021. Players are given a five-letter word to guess and have six attempts to get the word correct. When they get a letter correct, it will mark itself as green if it's in the correct position and yellow if it is the correct letter in the wrong position. A yellow letter also means that letter could appear more than once. Wordle was purchased by The New York Times Company in 2022 and added to their website and app, keeping the core game free to play as promised - with additional words and other bonuses available through subscription, and is available via browser, iOS, and Android.
