As usual, you'll be able to find today's Wordle answer near the bottom of this article. Until you get there though, here's a hint or two to help you along the way.

  • Hint 1: The recently announced remake of a certain tactics game dropped today's Wordle answer from the title for this latest re-release.
  • Hint 2: Today's word is also a shorter way of saying to hold onto. Maybe even a little tightly.

Have you guessed today's Wordle yet? Don't worry, you've successfully made it all the way to the answer if so. Today's Wordle is…cling. As in Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together, which is the greatest title of a video game I've never played. Maybe the remake Tactics Ogre: Reborn will give me an opportunity to correct that finally. Otherwise, today's word normally just means to stick to very tightly or latch onto. That's all for today's Wordle, but check in throughout the rest of the week for even more hints and answers!
