The answer to Monday, August 29’s Wordle puzzle could be a little tricky for some avid players but Newsweek is here to offer some tips on how to solve the latest offering from the incredibly popular word game.
Wordle does not have a calculated difficulty curve, unlike most games. Its designer, Josh Wardle, curated a list of over 2,500 daily brainteasers before launching the website but they are not structured in any particular order.
The sequence for Wordle has been totally randomized so that Wardle can play along just like any other player without having an unfair advantage. He originally devised the game so he and his partner could play during lockdown.
Wordle‘s randomized nature means that one day’s answer could be difficult to guess, while the next could be relatively easy.
That random nature means players are sometimes faced with a tricky puzzle and Wordle #436 could pose difficulties for some, but Newsweek is here to help
Before diving into Monday’s puzzle, it’s always worth noting the incredible popularity that Wordle has enjoyed.
The graphic below, provided by Statista, shows Wordle‘s rise in popularity.
The game launched with just 90 active players in October 2021 but is now pulling in millions of players every day.
Wordle has also helped spark a craze for guessing games and has inspired Dordle, Quordle, Worldle and even the mathematics-themed Nerdle. The game was so popular, it was acquired by The New York Times for an undisclosed seven-figure sum.
