Today’s Wordle is a historic one as April 15’s puzzle happens to be Wordle #300, which means the mini word game phenomenon has been running for 300 consecutive days. As you’re probably aware, Wordle asks players to guess a five-letter word in just six tries, with tiles turning one of three colors once you’ve made a guess in order to help you narrow down your search — if the tile turns green, the letter is in the right spot, if it turns yellow, it’s in the word but in a different position, and if it turns grey, it’s not in the word at all.

It would be a shame, then, if you failed to nab the correct answer on Wordle #300, so you may be in need of a little helping hand. If you’ve attempted a couple of guesses already, you may know that today’s word begins with the letters S and H. If you’re coming up short trying to think of any relevant words, then never fear, as we’ve got some suggestions to make your game a shade easier.

On top of the three suggestions that we slipped into the previous paragraph, here’s a comprehensive list of words beginning SH that you may want to try out.
