The answer for the Wordle challenge on March 1 was 'moose'. Players who struggled to solve this challenge took to social media to complain about the difficulty of this game.

"Wordle 620 4/6* Wouldn't have been on my shortlist for a word option, tricky one," said one player.

"How can I be so wrong Wordle 620 X/6," said one player who guessed 'loose', 'goose', and 'noose,' but unfortunately not 'moose.' "Wordle 620 X/6 I piggin' hate the 'guess the first letter' ones... #wordle #fail," said another who also struggled with the first letter of the word.

"Wordle 620 X/6* Had two choices on line six and chose the wrong one. Current streak back to zero, bugger," said another player in agreement.

"It’s official- the last of my marbles have left the building! Abject failure- Wordle 620 X/6," said one fan who also failed. "Wordle 620 6/6 Good grief, I made hard work of that!" said one player who solved the challenge by the skin of their teeth.

Moose Meaning

Many players struggled with this challenge because they were simply unfamiliar with the term. The word is not particularly common in everyday life, so what does the word moose mean?

The word 'moose' is a noun, and it's not to be confused with the word 'mousse.' Moose is defined by the dictionary as, 'a large deer with palmate antlers and a growth of skin hanging from the neck, native to northern Eurasia and northern North America'.

In comparison, the word 'mousse' is a makeup product ie: hair mousse, it is also a type of dessert, ie: chocolate mousse. This word is a description of a foamy, whipped texture that consists of lots of bubbles.
