Wordle 248 answer
In case you haven’t guessed it by now, the answer for Wordle 248 on February 22 is, in fact, THORN.
Our round of guessing began with our standard starter word, SLATE, which didn’t carry too much weight in getting us to the answer. Given the gray results, we took note of the T and tried a word with multiple Ts that took advantage of a mostly different set of letters. That brought us to the starting letters TH and compelled us to try THROB. Once we got there, it was just a matter of unscrambling those letters to reach the proper solution.
In the grand scheme of possible Wordle answers, the solution for February 22 is a fairly common one that we think many players will be able to deduce on their own. That said, if you had to use our help to keep your streak alive, we don’t think there’s much shame in that either.
