Let me take you through the issues that I faced last night – the high of feeling so smug that I worked out that the word likely ended in _ATCH, following my logical steps from my first word DANCE.
I figured out the combo at the end. I realized a vowel couldn’t live after the A. I had a great shot at doing it in two, but dang it, that wasn’t the right answer. Surely I’d do it on the next attempt, right…?
- Is this the biggest Wordle answer miss of all time?
If you’re on Twitter today, the top trending term today is ‘Wordle 265 X’ – which tells you the story that you need to know.
Let’s take a look at some of the top bits of ‘feedback’ for the situation today:

Here’s something interesting already: Google Trends for the UK suggests that this isn’t the huge fail that many people are reporting on Twitter – it seems that the outrage on the social media platform is far greater than Google Trends’ information is pointing out.
But let’s dig a little deeper here – we know the answer ends in _ATCH, and – like me – I’m sure many people are thinking: ‘I don’t need to Google the answer, right? Surely it’s the next one?’
And then, like me, they throw in LATCH and watch as their streak disappears in smoke.
