The very first Wordle for 2024 is available for fans to solve and we’ve got the hints and fully spoiled answer for those who may need a little help.

The newest Wordle word is available to solve and most players shouldn’t have too much trouble figuring out this first answer of 2024. No major difficulty tricks are being used in today’s puzzle and as long as you have a decent starting word there should be minimum suffering to solve today’s answer.

Since the start of the game back in 2019 there has yet to be a repeated word and there are so many words that Wordle hasn’t used yet. With this in mind, it’s smart to use a starting word that hasn’t already been an answer as the chance of scoring a Wordle win-in-one would increase.

Wordle: The word ANSWER in big white letters in front of a blurred background

The January 1st Wordle answer is MURAL.

For our first Wordle of the year, we used the starting word IRATE. This provided a few good clues with two misplaced letters, ‘R’ and ‘A’. Shuffling them around a bit our second attempt was POLAR which locked in the ‘A’ and added a new misplaced ‘L’ to the mix.

With a very lucky third attempt, we scored our Wordle win-in-three with the correct answer, MURAL.
