The answer to the Wordle challenge on June 10, is 'maybe'. The word divided fans and while some figured out this challenge without breaking a sweat, others found this to be a very tricky challenge. 

"Wordle 726 X/6 Not getting the third letter didn’t help," said one player. "Wordle 726 X/6* Bad miss today, tried a few more obscure words than the correct one and paid the ultimate price," said another.

"Kicking myself at this one!!!! Wordle 726 X/6," joked one player. "I don’t want to talk about it. I don’t want to talk about ANY of it. #Wordle 726 6/6," said another.

"Phew! Wordle 726 6/6* Thought it was going to be a streak buster today," said another who solved the puzzle by the skin of their teeth. "That was a squeaker. Unnecessarily hard #Wordle726 Wordle 726 6/6," said another. "Wordle 726 5/6 Bogey. Easy yet so hard," said yet another.

"That took a whole lot longer than it should have done... Wordle 726 5/6*" said one player. "This shouldn’t be a hard word but it was a challenge for me. Wordle 726 5/6," said yet another.

But why did players find this word so tricky? MAYBE isn't an uncommon word and many people are familiar with what the word means? 

The common consensus among players seems to be that the letter placement of the word bamboozled them. Most players struggled to guess the 'Y' in the centre of the word and therefore there were far too many options when guessing a word that starts with M and ends with E.
