Today’s Wordle #481 Answer, Hint And Clues For Thursday, October 13th


It would have been fitting, in the month of October, to have the 13th fall on a Friday rather than a Thursday. Not only is Friday the 13th an unlucky day, it’s a series of horror/slasher movies. And the 13 is the inverse of 31, with the 31st being Halloween. All I’m saying, is it would have been nice but it was not to be.

Next year, however, there will be a Friday the 13th in October. After that, the next will fall in 2028.

That’s quite a number, isn’t it? 2028. Six years from today I’ll be closer to 50 than 40 and I’m really not sure how to feel about that. Then again, that assumes I’m still around—or that any of us are. Will we survive the wars and changing climate? The next pandemic? The zombie apocalypse? The alien invasion?

Will we survive human nature?

These are questions that nobody can answer, but we can solve today’s Wordle. Baby steps, as Bob likes to say. Baby steps.

Today’s Wordle Solution (Spoilers!)

The Hint: Not uneven or unfair.

The Clue: There are three vowels in this word.

The Answer:

Another lucky day for your humble narrator, it seems. It occurred to me after I used blade that perhaps I’ve used it before, but at a certain point when you try to use a different word every day you lose track.

Either way, blade was pretty good today—as good as slate would have been, in any case. My second guess—scour—may have only added one yellow box to the three I already had, but it was enough. Wordle Bot later informed me that it had brought my possible solutions down to just 1, after blade brought the 2,309 down to just 50.

Admittedly, figuring out what that word was ended up being a bit tricky. I had to scour my brain for a good long while. I figured it would be a vowel at the front but for a spell all I could think of was alure which was obviously wrong.

At last, I came to equal for the win! And better still, I later discovered that I’d once again beaten my old rival and arch-enemy, Wordle Bot:

Ha! Hahahahahah! You lose Wordle Bot! Bahahahahaha!
