Tuesday, May 17th has another Wordle puzzle for players to solve. Here are the daily hints, and the full answer, to today’s Wordle.
Another Wordle is primed and ready for players to guess, and the May 17th one could certainly cause some trouble depending on what starting word is used. Wordle is a once-a-day word guessing game that has players solve a single five-letter word within six guesses. With each answer attempted the game will give clues in the form of highlighted letters. A green highlight means the letter is correct, yellow means correct letter but incorrect placement, and grey means the letter doesn’t belong in the answer at all. This classic hint system was popularized by older games like Mastermind which used a system of colored pegs to provide hints to a number sequence.
Today’s Wordle is actually a very common word that is used often, but many times the common words can cause the most trouble. With very common five-letter word endings like ‘ER”https://screenrant.com/what-is-todays-wordle-answer-332-may-17-hints/,”ED’, or ‘ING’ it’s easy to take multiple guesses at an answer and be incorrect each time. This is where the psychology of a Wordle word being easier if the player knows it’s hard comes from. Less common beginnings or endings can make it easier to break down the answer with previous clues. If players want the game to be even more of a challenge they can also turn on the Hard Mode that the game provides in the options menu.

Today’s Wordle Answer (May 17th #332)
Today’s Wordle answer is BEING.
Quite a common word but one with many different possible combinations. We were very lucky today with our guesses and ended up getting the answer in only three tries. For our starting Wordle word we used IRATE which provided a few incorrect letters and two correct letters in the wrong spots, ‘I’ and ‘E’. Our second guess moved the two vowels in a bit with PILED, this only provided more incorrect letters and incorrect placements. Assuming the word was then going to end with ‘ING’, we tried BEING and ended up being correct. Sometimes Wordle surprises with a quick and solid win, keeping the game fresh and exciting for many more days to come.
