What the Wordle?

Don't worry, we won't spoil today's word.

What the heck is a Wordle and what does it do? Wordle is a word-based web game where players have six attempts to guess a five-letter word. Feedback is given for each guess in the form of colored tiles indicating when letters match or occupy the correct position. There are no hints and there is one available word a day.

Creator Josh Wardle launched the game back in October 2021, but it didn't begin gaining popularity until the turn of the year. The brain game has taken over the internet space because of its accessibility and uniqueness. There are no age restrictions and you only need a web browser to play.

Wordle game play

Although Wordle was recently bought by The New York Times, the game will continue to be free when it moves platforms. This has been confirmed by both the newspaper and game creator. Players became concerned as, typically, in order to play The Times games you have to be a paid subscriber. "At the time it moves to The New York Times, Wordle will be free to play for new and existing players, and no changes will be made to its gameplay," confirmed the paper in a press release.
