Looking for Wednesday’s Wordle hints, clues and answer? You can find them here.

It’s the day of Thor and that means yesterday was Wordle Wednesday which, in turn, means I gave you lovely puzzle-solvers an extra riddle, brain teaser or logic puzzle to solve. Now I’ll dish out the answer.

Here was the puzzle:

If you have three, you have three. If you have two, you have two. If you have a dozen, you have a dozen. But if you have one, you have none.

Good job to everyone who messaged me with the correct answer! You are the champions of the world . . .

The Clue: This Wordle has an 8-point Scrabble letter, a 5-point Scrabble letter and a 4-point Scrabble letter.

Every day I check Wordle Bot to help analyze my guessing game. You can check your Wordles with Wordle Bot right here.

Tough one today! My opening guess—STALE—was terrible, leaving me with a whopping 328 remaining solutions. With only one yellow box, I decided to guess all new letters on #2 and went with BOINK.

At this point I had 7 words remaining, and I went with one that I hoped would eliminate the most choices. PERKY was so close, too! I almost went with JERKY and now I wish I had. Oh well!

I get 0 points for guessing in four, but the miraculous thing is that the Wordle Bot took five tries today, so I get a point for beating it! Huzzah!

Guessing in 1 is worth 3 points; guessing in 2 is worth 2 points; guessing in 3 is worth 1 point; guessing in 4 is worth 0 points; guessing in 5 is -1 points; guessing in 6 is -2 points and missing the Wordle is -3 points.

If you beat your opponent you get 1 point. If you tie, you get 0 points. And if you lose to your opponent, you get -1 point. Add it up to get your score. Keep a daily running score or just play for a new score each day.

The word "jerky" comes from the Quechua word "ch'arki" which means "dried, salted meat." The Quechua language was spoken by the indigenous people of the Andes, primarily in what is now Peru. The term was adopted into Spanish as "charqui," and then entered English as "jerky." This process of language adoption and adaptation reflects the historical trading and cultural exchanges between Native American peoples, Spanish explorers, and settlers.
