A poor start on Wordle can turn the normally fun challenge into a frustrating nightmare. Thankfully, Newsweek is here with the latest guide on how to solve today’s puzzle.
Wordle was released to the public in October 2021 and went from having just a few dozen active players to a sensation that attracted millions of regular users. The New York Times acquired it in January 2022 for an undisclosed sum.
The game’s premise is relatively easy to understand, players follow a color system to work out a five-letter word and have six attempts to get the correct answer.
Green tiles show how many letters are in the word and in the correct position. A yellow tile means the letter is in the word but in the wrong place. A gray tile means that the letter is not in the word at all.
Many players have devised their own strategy that they swear by, while others will freestyle their attempts completely. When tackling the puzzle, it can be beneficial to be adaptable and consider new strategies as a good start can be the difference between success and failure.
The game’s own developer, Josh Wardle, likes to spend his first few tries eliminating as much of the alphabet as he can.
Whatever your game plan for the addictive puzzle, now and again we could all do with a hint. Check out below for some tips that can help you solve today’s game.
