It’s safe to say that Wordle has taken the world by storm, with millions of people playing the online brainteaser every day.
However, Wordle can stump us all at times, with seasoned professionals and newbies alike can find it challenging.
The game was developed by Josh Wardle for his puzzle-loving partner Palak Shah. He first started working on the puzzle in 2013 but later returned to the project in his spare time, during the COVID-19 lockdown.
The premise of the game is straightforward. It requires players to guess a five-letter word in six tries or less and can be played here.
Wordle is color-coded to help you figure out the answer. When a letter is in the right position, it will turn green. Any letters that are in the word but have been placed in the wrong position will turn yellow. Letters that aren’t in the word will become gray.
Wordle became such a worldwide success that The New York Times Company bought the gamefrom its original creator in January 2022 for an undisclosed seven-figure sum.
Other Wordle-inspired puzzles include the music-based Heardle, the math-based Nerdle, and the challenging Quordle, which requires players to solve four words in just nine attempts.
