Wordle 281 is a doozy and players are struggling to nail the correct five letter word.

Today’s puzzle has kept players guessing, even threatening some people’s Wordle streak.

If you’re stumped today, you’re not the only one – fans have taken to social media to vent about Wordle 281.

In case you don’t know, Wordle is a free word puzzle that went viral shortly after Welsh software engineer Josh Wardle created it in October 2021.

The game, now owned by The New York Times, gives you six tries to guess a five letter word.

Read on for some hints – and the answer – for today’s Wordle.

In this simple and addictive puzzle, squares turn gray, yellow or green after each guess.

Gray indicates a letter is not in the word, yellow means it is in the word but not in the right place, and green means it’s the right letter in the right place.

If you’ve guessed a word correctly, all the squares will turn green.

Wordle players have been sharing their gray square-heavy guesses in frustration with today’s puzzle.

One clue – that Wordle 281 has no vowels – made the puzzle that much more difficult

Today’s Wordle is ‘nymph’.

The puzzle left players stumped, plus with no vowels to serve as a hint, left people grasping for guesses.

Wordle players grumbled about how tough the puzzle was on Twitter.

Reporter Rob O’Hanrahan tweeted: “To whoever has been on the weekend Wordle shift at the New York Times, I hope whoever it was that hurt you has gotten the message.”

“ADIEU players after they get absolutely nothing in the first guess,” said a player, adding a picture of a shocked man with his hands clasped atop his head.

The word ‘adieu’ is a common first guess in Wordle as it has many vowels.

Attaching a picture of Leonardo DiCaprio laughing, another said: “People are going to be so angry at Wordle 281.”

One Wordle player went as far to look up more vowel-less words for future reference.

They wrote: “I took the liberty of looking up 5 letter words with no vowels for future reference #Wordle fans! – Gypsy, nymph, psych, lynch, crypt, myrrh, wryly, lymph, glyph, tryst, Pygmy, sylph, shyly , dryly, stymy & slyly. Just in case they pull another # Wordle281! I got your backs Fam! “
