SPOILER WARNING: Wordle hints and today’s answer are below, so don’t read on if you don’t want to see them.

Wordle hints (game #792) – clue #1 – Vowels

How many vowels does today’s Wordle have?

Wordle today has vowels in two places*.

* Note that by vowel we mean the five standard vowels (A, E, I, O, U), not Y (which is sometimes counted as a vowel too). 

Wordle hints (game #792) – clue #2 – first letter

What letter does today’s Wordle begin with?

The first letter in today’s Wordle answer is Q.

Q is one of the least likely letters to start a Wordle answer – but then again, it’s also one of the least common letters in the game anywhere!

Wordle hints (game #792) – clue #3 – repeated letters

Does today’s Wordle have any repeated letters?

There are no repeated letters in today’s Wordle.

Repeated letters are quite common in the game, with 748 of the 2,309 Wordle answers containing one. However, it’s still more likely that a Wordle doesn’t have one.

Wordle hints (game #792) – clue #4 – ending letter

What letter does today’s Wordle end with?

The last letter in today’s Wordle is T.

T is a very common letter to end a Wordle answer – in fact only E and Y are more likely in that position.

Wordle hints (game #792) – clue #5 – last chance

Today’s Wordle answer (game #792) is… QUEST.

Wordle’s difficult run continues here, although it’s not close to being as tough as yesterday’s puzzle (see below). In fact, WordleBot, the NYT’s AI helper tool, says people are solving it in an average of 3.9 guesses. That’s pretty standard, actually.

Obviously the Q is the main complicating factor here; it’s the second least common letter in the game, ahead of only J. But the other letters are all regular visitors to Wordle, and there are only so many possibilities that work here once you get a couple of greens.

It’s also one of those Wordles where several of the best Wordle starting words will have done a lot of the hard work. My choice, STARE, gave me three yellow letters – S, T and E – and left me with 18 possible solutions. SLATE (19), RAISE (13) and ARISE (also 13) were all pretty good too, while LEAST left just six options.

My options broke down into roughly three groups: –EST words (CHEST, GUEST, QUEST), -EST- words (PESTO, ZESTY, TESTY) and –SET words (UNSET, BESET, UPSET, INSET, ONSET). There were also a few others, including a couple that ended –IST (EXIST, HEIST), plus several that I didn’t find but that WordleBot told me about afterwards (BESOT, DEIST, TELOS, FETUS).

The –SET words were the most numerous, so I decided to go down that route. But I was torn as to whether to play INSET or UNSET – both I and U featured in quite a few. In the end, I went with UNSET because the U was in four of my answers compared to three… and got very lucky.

It wasn’t UNSET, and indeed it wasn’t even a –SET word; the T turned green but the S and E stayed stubbornly yellow. But the fact that the U also turned yellow, and the N stayed gray, reduced my solutions massively. I now had just two to pick from: QUEST and GUEST.

The latter would have been the more obvious choice to play, but I had a nagging feeling it had been a past Wordle answer. And indeed, it had – not that long ago (game #737 in June). I didn’t look at the time, but I had a strong enough hunch that I decided to play QUEST first and scored a 3/6. Lots of luck for me today, then.

Yesterday’s Wordle hints (game #791)

In a different time zone where it’s still Saturday? Don’t worry – I can give you some clues for Wordle #791, too.

  • Wordle yesterday had vowels in two places.
  • The first letter in yesterday’s Wordle answer was M.
  • There were repeated letters in yesterday’s Wordle.
  • The last letter in yesterday’s Wordle was A.
  • Yesterday’s Wordle answer is hot stuff.

Yesterday’s Wordle answer (game #791)

Yesterday’s Wordle answer (game #791) was… MAGMA.

The end of July and start of August saw a near-continuous run of easy Wordles; at one stage there were 11 games out of 12 with an average score of below 4.0. That tide has firmly turned as we’ve advanced into mid-August, with a string of games above or only just above 4. But none have been as difficult as today’s.

MAGMA has a mighty average score of 4.9, according to WordleBot, which makes it the toughest one since FROZE (game #763) and the joint seventh hardest so far in 2023. 

It doesn’t take a genius to work out why it’s so tough (although it may well take a genius to get a score below 4/6 today). Simply put, MAGMA is one of just 38 Wordles – out of 2,309 – to contain two repeated letters. One repeated letter is bad enough, but two… well, that 4.9 doesn’t sound outlandish now.

What’s more, MAGMA is a word that has an annoyingly large number of similarly spelled words, depending on how your game developed. For instance, the MAG- start of the word could also point to MAGIC, and the MA-MA part could also be MAMMA. Then there’s MANIA and MANGA and MAMBA and MANIC and MADAM. Or MANGO and MACHO and MAFIA and MAXIM. Or, if your game went in a very different way, maybe GAMMA or BAGGY or WAGON or PAGAN. 

All of those were words that were played by other Wordlers today, and some were played very late on; for guess #6, 2% of the people who hadn’t yet solved the game played MAMMA. And those 2% all lost their streak.

I didn’t lose my streak, but I did score a nasty 5/6, which is never something I enjoy. I don’t feel like I made any major mistakes, though. Things started badly, when STARE – my pick of the best Wordle starting words – only gave me a single yellow A and left me with 186 possible solutions. And that was no worse than most; only CARTE and CATER (both 94) left fewer than 100 possibles.

Still, my next guess was fortunate. I often play MADLY or BADLY when I get a single yellow A, because A is very common in position #2 and D, L and Y tend to end lots of answers that don’t have a T, E or R (all of which I’d already ruled out).

As it happened, I didn’t get the ending – but I did get the start, with both M and A turning green. This was great – I now had just 14 options. Trouble was, those 14 were going to be hard to filter down. 

I decided to play a word that ended in an A, to cover off the chance of a repeated A as in MANIA, MAGMA, MAMMA, MAMBA, MANGA, MANNA and MAFIA, all of which were in my list. I thought including an O and I made sense – because both featured in lots of options, including MAMBO, MACHO, MAGIC and MANIC. And as you can see from those words, C and N were also common. So, the ideal word to play was CONIA or NOCIA or CINOA or something like that. But none of those words were real. Or were they? I tried them all on the off chance and CONIA was accepted! I have no idea why – it’s not in Merriam-Webster dictionary, or But whatever, Wordle accepted it and confirmed the second green A. It also ruled out a lot of options and left me with just three: MAMMA, MAGMA and MAMBA.

So, I had three guesses left and three words – I couldn’t lose. A 4/6 would have been nice, but I guessed MAMMA first and had to settle for a 5/6 when I played MAGMA next.

What is Wordle?

If you’re on this page then you almost certainly know what Wordle is already, and indeed have probably been playing it for a while. And even if you’ve not been playing it, you must surely have heard of it by now, because it’s the viral word game phenomenon that took the world by storm last year and is still going strong in 2023.

We’ve got a full guide to the game in our What is Wordle page, but if you just want a refresher then here are the basics.

What is Wordle?

Wordle challenges you to guess a new five-letter word each day. You get six guesses, with each one revealing a little more information. If one of the letters in your guess is in the answer and in the right place, it turns green. If it’s in the answer but in the wrong place, it turns yellow. And if it’s not in the answer at all it turns gray. Simple, eh? 

It’s played online via the Wordle website or the New York Times’ Crossword app (iOS / Android), and is entirely free. 

Crucially, the answer is the same for everyone each day, meaning that you’re competing against the rest of the world, rather than just against yourself or the game. The puzzle then resets each day at midnight in your local time, giving you a new challenge, and the chance to extend your streak.

What are the Wordle rules?

The rules of Wordle are pretty straightforward, but with a couple of curveballs thrown in for good measure.

1. Letters that are in the answer and in the right place turn green.

2. Letters that are in the answer but in the wrong place turn yellow. 

3. Letters that are not in the answer turn gray.

4. Answers are never plural.

5. Letters can appear more than once. So if your guess includes two of one letter, they may both turn yellow, both turn green, or one could be yellow and the other green.

6. Each guess must be a valid word in Wordle’s dictionary. You can’t guess ABCDE, for instance.

7. You do not have to include correct letters in subsequent guesses unless you play on Hard mode.

8. You have six guesses to solve the Wordle.

9. You must complete the daily Wordle before midnight in your timezone.

10. All answers are drawn from Wordle’s list of 2,309 solutions. However…

11. Wordle will accept a wider pool of words as guesses – some 10,000 of them. For instance, you can guess a plural such as WORDS. It definitely won’t be right (see point 4 above), but Wordle will accept it as a guess.
