The weekend has arrived, and it’s time to embark on a puzzle adventure: there’s a new Wordle to solve! Take a look at our daily Wordle hints and tips — going alone isn’t dangerous, but it will be more difficult.

The solution to Wordle puzzle #434 for August 27 can be found at the end of this article. But before you get there, there are a couple of subtle hints to help you narrow it down, and as you scroll down, you’ll see we’ve compiled a list of the best tips and strategies from our previous reporting to help you every day.

What is the origin of Wordle?
Josh Wardle, a former Reddit engineer, created the game in 2021 as a bit of fun for himself and his word game-loving partner. It eventually became a part of their family’s WhatsApp messaging, and Wardle began to suspect he had something special enough to warrant a wider release.

Thousands of people play this game every day around the world, and fans have even created Wordle alternatives inspired by the original format. This includes Heardle, a music identification game, Actorle and Framed, and variations like Dordle and Quordle, which require you to guess multiple words at once.

What is the best Wordle start-up phrase?


We have some suggestions to help you make the best first move. Choose a word with at least two different vowels to rule those building blocks in or out, as well as a few common consonants like S, T, R, or N.

Also, even if you’re attached to your mathematically sound starter, once it’s been the answer on any given day, it won’t be the answer for a few years — so if you get the elusive 1/6 result, celebrate by swapping out your starting five.


What became of the Wordle archive?
According to the site’s creator, you could once play the entire archive of past puzzles, but the archive was removed at the request of the New York Times.


Is Wordle becoming more difficult?
If you’ve been finding Wordle too easy, you can switch to Hard Mode to make it more difficult. But, unless you enable this mode, we can assure you that Wordle is not becoming more difficult.


Why do some days have two different Wordle answers?
The whole point of Wordle is that everyone, no matter where you are in the world, is solving the same puzzle and getting the same answer. However, the puzzle game will occasionally accept two different correct solutions on the same day. This anomaly is the result of changes made by the New York Times after it acquired Wordle earlier this year, including the removal of words from Wardle’s original list that the team considers obscure or potentially offensive.


To ensure that you always get the same puzzle as everyone else, refresh your browser before playing — don’t worry, the site will keep track of your streak.


On August 27, there will be a subtle hint for the Wordle answer.
