Wordle has exploded in popularity since it was first released just over a year ago and continues to test enthusiasts with its word puzzles.
One major reason behind Wordle‘s success is its simplicity, which allows newcomers to quickly pick up and play the game.
Every day players are tasked with working out a five-letter word within six guesses or less using a color-coded system.
In the game, a green tile indicates the letter is correct and in the right place. A yellow one means the letter is right but in the wrong place, while gray means it is not in the word at all.
Speaking to Newsweek in January, creator Josh Wardle said he first developed the game during the coronavirus lockdown “for me and my partner to enjoy.”
Soon Wordle went from an intimate experience with only a dozen players to a worldwide phenomenon with millions of active users.
The New York Times then stepped in to buy Wordle for an unspecified seven-figure sum, although it remains free to play via its website.
Wordle’s popularity has helped to inspire a number of other online puzzle games, such as geography-based Worldle and Nerdle for Math fans.
The answer to today’s puzzle will be shared with readers at the end of this article, so scroll down carefully if you want to work it out for yourself.
