The answer to the Wordle challenge on July 24, is 'hobby'. The word divided fans and while some figured out this challenge without breaking a sweat, others found this to be a very tricky challenge.

One player complained about losing a streak, "Wordle 765 X/6 After a 104 streak, gotta start from the beginning again." 

Others complained that the word was 'common' and they couldn't believe that they found it so tricky. "#Wordle 765 X/6 First three lines were all different letters where grey — gave up after the fourth line, but should have stuck at it because **spoiler alert** the word’s a common one," said one player."#Wordle765 Wordle 765 4/6 Didn't think it would be such a simple word. Tried weird ones," said another. 

Another added, "Another easy but difficult one today. Wordle 765 4/6."However, some players enjoyed this challenge and thought it was the perfect word. "#wordle765 Class act, ⁦⁦⁩ - I am impressed with that word," said one player.

But why did players find this word so tricky? HOBBY isn't an uncommon word, and most players were 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 double B in the centre of the word and therefore there were far too many options when guessing a word that starts with an H and ends with a Y.
