Yesterday's challenge, Wordle 613 horrified players as many struggled to solve the word 'riper' - and today's challenge is a shocker too! 

Yesterday, Wordle 613 was labeled a 'BS word' as players failed to solve the 'streak-ender' challenge. While this isn't the first time that a wordle challenge has trended on social media because so many people are failing, this particular word even caught the attention of the game makers at the New York Times.

Revealing how tricky this challenge really was, the New York Times tweeted, "Warning: Wordle 613 is a streak killer. About 25% of players are losing today's puzzle (usually it's only 1-2%)."

Of course, as a quarter of people failed to solve this challegne, this announcement did not come as a complete surprise to some. "No kidding. Grrrr. Barely got it in Wordle 613 6/6," said one player in response to this announcement. 

However, others took comfort that others were failing too. "Today's wordle ended 25% of players' streaks. So I'm in very good company," commented one player.

In another tricky move, the New York Times posed another hard challenge the very next day and on February 23, fans were stumped as they struggled to solve a new puzzle.

The answer for the Wordle challenge on February 23 was 'vague'. Players who struggled to solve this challenge took to social media to complain about the difficulty of this game.

"A hard one again today, not as bad as yesterday, but still. Wordle 614 6/6," said one player. "Wordle 614 3/6 I worked hard for that one after maxing out yesterday," said another.

"Totally lost the plot here. Wordle 614 X/6," said one player who failed to solve the challenge. "Wordle 614 4/6 -thought I wasn't going to get an answer at all today #wordle #wordle614," said another.

Vague Meaning

Most people who struggled to solve this puzzle failed to put the letter 'v' in the puzzle, which made guessing the correct word pretty tough. However some failed at this challenge because they were simply unfamiliar with the term, so what does the word vague mean?

The word vague is described as an adjective meaning ' of uncertain, indefinite, or unclear character or meaning'. For example, you could say, "many patients suffer vague symptoms."
