Today’s Wordle #596 Hint, Clues And Answer For Sunday, February 5th


It’s crazy that we’re already almost on the 600th Wordle. It’s even crazier that we still have three times that many remaining (or thereabouts). That’s a lot of 5-letter words to go through!

That’s okay. Having so many to choose from keeps us on our toes, and makes words that much harder to guess. I often can’t remember if something I’ve come up with has already been used as an answer. Unlike Wordle Bot, I don’t have a machine head, better than the rest.

In any case, after today we just have three more Wordles in the 500’s and then we enter the 600+ stretch, which will go until late May. Let’s solve today’s!

How To Solve Today’s Wordle

The Hint: Bobby Freeman asked this famous question.

The Clue: This word starts with a consonant and ends with a vowel.

The Answer (Spoilers):





I don’t know if I was just hungry and craving a delicious crape or if the gods of luck and serendipity smiled on me today or what. Whatever the case, my first guess—crape—was beyond excellent. I was left with just four words, though I went with the one that popped into my head first. (I could have gone with sauce, acute or lance at this point, and I’m honestly surprised I didn’t think of lance first as I’ve been pondering Dragonlance lately, and how we need an animated series based on those books).

Dance, of course, was the right answer. Since I didn’t know I had only four options left, I was a little surprised at how quickly I got this one—but pleasantly surprised. I beat the Wordle Bot, who got his in three. Final score:

  • 2 points for guessing in 2
  • 1 point for beating the bot

That’s 3 points, or a triple HUZZAH! today. Huzzah! Huzzah! Huzzah!

Have a lovely, lazy Sunday, folks.
