How to play Wordle
Wordle is a very simple word guessing game. The goal is to guess the correct five-letter word in just six tries. With each try, the individual letters of the chosen word will be highlighted in green if they are in the correct place or yellow if they are in the wrong place. If a letter does not appear at all in the solution word, it will remain unhighlighted.
Using these clues, you can begin to narrow down the correct word by figuring out which letters are included in the word and in which positions they belong. go to the Word site to try it for yourself. Just remember: only one Wordle puzzle is released per day, so if you want to play again, you’ll have to wait until tomorrow.
How did Wordle get started?
Wordle started life as a small family game created by software engineer Josh Wardle. He created the game so that he and his partner could play a fun word game together during the pandemic, and they quickly realized that there was something very special about this simple guessing game. So after a bit of refinement, Wardle released it to the public on his website, power language.
The game launched in October 2021, and by the end of the year, it had two million daily players. It became a viral hit, thanks in no small part to the ease with which players could share their spoiler-free results on Twitter and other social media sites. In January 2022, Wardle accepted an offer from the New York Times to acquire Wordle for a seven-figure sum. Well done, Mr. Wardle. Well done.
Are there any Wordle words that are not allowed?
You can write pretty much any five-letter word in English and Wordle will take it as a guess. However, the answer is chosen each day from a much smaller list of the most common five-letter words. There are still thousands of possible answers, of course, but it means that the answer will never be as obscure a word as, say, “THIOL”, or “CAIRD” or “MALIC” (yes, those are all real words).
There are very occasional words that the New York Times will choose not to publish as Wordle’s answer of the day, perhaps for reasons related to recent news or politics. For example, shortly after news broke that Roe v Wade might be overturned in the United States, the NYT decided to change the March 30 wording from “FETUS” to “SHINE” since the feeling was that the word “fetus” was too politically loaded a word in the context of recent events.
The New York Times has also been careful never to allow what it considers profanity as an answer to a Wordle puzzle. But, of course, there’s nothing stopping you from using even the dirtiest words as guesses, as long as they’re accepted dictionary words and as long as you realize they’ll never end up being the answer.
Is Wordle getting too easy for you?
If Wordle starts to get too easy, there are a few ways you can make the game more challenging for yourself. The first option is to activate the hard mode. You can do this on the Wordle site by clicking the gear icon at the top right of the screen. Hard Mode means that any highlighted letter have to be used in all future guesses. This prevents you from using the common tactic of picking two words like “OUNCE” and “PAIN” to test all five vowels from the start.
You can take it to another level by playing with what we call “Ultra-Hard” rules. This means that every guess you enter have to potentially be the answer. If you were just playing hardmode and you typed “MOIST”, and the “O” appeared in yellow, then nothing would stop you from making “POLAR” as your next word, even though that’s probably not the answer because you already know the “O” is there. in the wrong place. If you play with “Ultra-Hard” rules, that is not allowed. You have to stick to each clue and make sure that each word you enter is potentially the answer.
If Wordle is still too easy for you after all, you can always try one of the many other Wordle-inspired online games that have sprung up over the last year. One of our favorites is Worldle, in which you have to guess a country in the world based on its shape. There’s also Waffle, which involves swapping letters on an entire grid to complete all the words; Moviedle, which shows you an entire movie in a short space of time and challenges you to guess the movie in six guesses; and Quordle, which forces you to solve four Wordles at once with the same guesses.
