Need your Wordle of the day for August 21, 2022? Well, we don’t actually give them out, but we do have hints! This time around they’re for Wordle 428 — along with a sweet, sweet answer at the end. Why don’t we just go right to it and get you what you want.
As usual, we’re going to give some hints first before sharing the answer. If you just want said answer, scroll to the very bottom of the article. It’s right there in bold text below the aforementioned “SPOILER WARNING.” For those of you who just want a tiny nudge in the right direction, the next section includes both some easy hints (whether the word is a noun or a verb, a very broad category of what it could be, etc.) followed by some more specific clues. The latter should all but tell you what the word is.
Today’s Wordle Word Hints of the Day: #428
In this section, we try to keep things vague and only point you in the right direction. Hints at this stage will be more about the meaning of the word, rather than any specific letters that are used in the word itself. We also won’t use other methods like “rhymes with,” “sounds similar to,” and the like. More specific hints are included just after that — finally followed by the full solution after a Wordle spoiler warning. Figured we’d just warn you one last time!
These first hints will steer you in a general direction without giving too much away!
- Could refer to freshly bought candles.
- You might call a dark room this.
Even with those two hints, there are still plenty more possibilities to choose from. We’ll try to narrow things down in the next section! Note that this one might include more specific types of hints not included before (that’s kind of the point).
More Specific Hints
You still totally get credit (and keep your streak) if you need these beefier hints. Let’s narrow it down and get a bit more specific.
- Refers to something that is not lit.

I can’t see the word “unlit” these days and not think it means “uncool.” It’s a very silly way to reinterpret that sort of slang, but that’s just how our brains work sometimes, I suppose.
How’s that streak going? Looking to step up your Wordle game? Check out our other Wordle coverage! Our tips guide will help you choose some of the best starting words, if that’s your thing; for those who struggle with the “Not in Word List” error, we also explain what that means here. For those of you who are somehow playing Wordle, but don’t understand why it’s so darn popular, we’ve also got an explainer for it so you finally know why it’s grown so quickly.
Did You Know: We’d love to simply list our hints and give you the answer as soon as possible, but Google requires there to be so many words on the page which is why so many of these Wordle guides have intros that drag on and talk about nonsense. We try to avoid too much of that here, but we figured we’d give you a peek behind the curtain for a second.
