It’s been over a year since New York software developer Josh Wardle first released Wordle to the public, and the game continues to go from strength to strength.
Part of Wordle’s appeal is surely its simplicity, which means it can be played by almost anybody. Each day, a new five letter word is released and the player is tasked with working it out in six guesses or less.
After each guess, the letters light up letting you know how close to the answer you were. If a letter goes green it is both in the answer, and in the position you put it. Yellow means the letter features, but not where you placed it, whilst gray means it is not in the word at all.
Speaking to Newsweek in January, Wardle explained that he first developed Wordle during coronavirus lockdown simply “for me and my partner to enjoy.”
Later that month the New York Times purchased Wordle for an unspecified seven figure sum, though it remains free to play.
Wordle’s popularity has helped inspire a number of other online puzzles, such as Nerdle for math fans and Worldle for geography enthusiasts.
The answer to today’s puzzle will be revealed at the end of this article, so scroll down with caution if you want to work it out for yourself. To help you solve today’s Wordle, Newsweek has provided some hints and tips on the latest puzzle.
