"Wordle 292 X/6 This is the worst day of my life," said one player who failed to guess the word correctly. 

"Wordle 292 X/6 Never heard of that word in my life," said another.

Other players were insistent that foray was in fact not a word. "Wordle is such a scam what kind of word is foray," said one player.

"Wordle 292 4/6 #Wordle292 Trial and error really. I can truly say I have never heard, read or used this word in my life," added another.

"Wordle really has the audacity to put the word 'Foray' like any regular person knows what it means or if it even existed," said another fan.
