Today's Wordle Answer (#487) - October 19, 2022

You'll need to think outside of the box to get this Wordle correct.


It might be the middle of week, but there's still no slowing down this Wordle train. We've returned to offer more help to people in need when it comes to getting the Wordle correct. This time, we're helping out with the answer on October 19, and players will need some extra help with this one. The word itself is somewhat common, though it wouldn't be surprising if some users had never heard of it all. There's also some complicated spelling in the word that will certainly give players a hard time. If you haven't started the Wordle just yet, then you can check out our list of recommended starting words. However, if you're already past the starting point, then you're likely looking for some hints.

Luckily, we provide just that further down in this article. We also spell out the full answer even further down, so if you don't want to be spoiled, don't read below the hints.
