On May 4, the Wordle answer for the day was TRAIN. Fun fact, it was also the word of the day for a Wordle spin-off, Canuckle. I did Canuckle first, and got it in 3. Then I turned to Wordle, and thought, what the heck. May as well use TRAIN as my starting word. And BAM! My first and only time getting Wordle in 1.
You have to be a Wordle addict to appreciate the excitement, but I rode that high all day!
It’s official, I’m a Canuckle nerd (nerdle?). In today’s blog I’m fully coming to terms with that realization and finally admitting it to myself. My wife is already planning to have friends and family over later tonight for an intervention.
Since I got hooked on Canuckle a couple of months ago, I started keeping a private list of words that I think are very good candidates for future Canuckle answers. In today’s blog, I’m posting that list for other Canuckle addicts out there. I’m sure I’m not alone in this. Maybe we could start having meetings in church basements…
I claim no insider knowledge. This list is simply what I believe to be likely candidates for future Canuckle answers since they have a Canadian flavour and theme to them.
I will, from time to time, update this list with new words that occur to me, and strike through the words that get used as the answer for the day. A couple of these words are my favorite starting words, and I’m excited for the day when I hit upon the right answer on the first guess. That hasn’t happened yet, but I have solved Canuckle 11 times in just two guesses.

Just in case you’ve been missing out, I’m also maintaining an up-to-date list of past Canuckle Answers, starting with the very first puzzle back in February 2022.
If you are a fellow Canuckle nerd and have some favorite starting words of your own, drop me a line and let me know if you find this list helpful. Or let me know if you have some words that should be added.
Words that are struck-through have been the puzzle answer since I started maintaining this list.
