Good morning, South Africa! It’s 1 August 2022 – the start of a new month and no one is in the mood for hassles today, especially not with Wordle #408.

How to play Wordle

Wordle took the world by storm during the Covid-19 pandemic and has remained a staple ever since. And it’s not always that hard.

You can access the game either via your mobile or desktop browser. There is only one puzzle per day, and everyone around the world is served the same challenge.

Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to guess the day’s five-letter word and you only have six tries to get it right.

With every guess, the letters in your attempt are highlighted certain colours:

  • Grey: This letter doesn’t appear in the word
  • Orange: This letter appears in the word, but in a different place
  • Green: This letter appears in the word and is in the correct spot.

Tips to play Wordle

  • Use a word with the most popular vowels – A and E – and make sure the same letter doesn’t appear twice in your guess.
  • Avoid letters such as X, Z and Q until later on; these aren’t used as often as A, E, R, S and T.
  • I personally start the game with ARISE and TOUCH.
  • However, the words RAISE and MOUNT are worthy contenders too.

Clues for Wordle 408 on 1 August 2022

Today’s Wordle starts with the Letter Q and ends with the letter T.

Related words are gallon and pint.
