‘Wordle’ Today #967 Clues, Hints and Answer for Sunday, February 11 Puzzle

Despite its relative ubiquity across the world now, Wordle first came about a little over two years ago, but quickly shot to prominence and spawned a whole new genre of brainteaser guessing games.

Invented by Josh Wardle, a New York-based software engineer, the online game came about as a way to entertain his partner during the coronavirus pandemic. The couple shared a love of crossword puzzles, so he developed Wordle as a way for them to spend quality time together.

Wordle was first released to the public in October 2021, and rapidly exploded from 90 users on November 1 that year to 300,000 on January 2, 2022, according to figures by Statista. The New York Times then purchased the game in January 2022 for an undisclosed low seven-figure fee.

As is to be expected with any brainteaser, some players may be stuck on Sunday’s answer, but you’re not alone, even the creator has said in an interview with Newsweek that he’s not the best player, usually taking “at least four or five attempts” to guess right.

As such, Newsweek has supplied some helpful hints below to help users on their way to those five green squares. But be warned, the answer to today’s puzzle will be revealed at the end of this article, so scroll with caution.

What Does ‘Never’ Mean?

The Cambridge English dictionary defines “never” as “not at any time or not on any occasion,” but it can also be used colloquially as a way of expressing a belief that something did not happen at a particular time, or that a person did not do something. It is a contraction of “not ever,” a phrase less commonly used nowadays.

An example of its use may be: “I would never eat shredded wheat.”
