Wordle is a word game that went viral back in early 2022. WhileWordle has become less popular since the New York Times bought it in February of last year, it still has quite the following, and those players might be looking for hints and other help on today’s puzzle.
Wordle is a simple little game with only a handful of rules. In spite of how easy it is to learn how to play, getting a good strategy for winning can be a big challenge. For anyone new to the game, here are the rules of how to play along with a little strategy for winning Wordle.
First, players will want to make sure they are in the correct place. Since it was so massively popular in early 2022, there are tons of Wordle copycats and clones out there. The original, while made by an indie dev, was purchased by the NYT Newspaper last year. It is still hosted on its Games website as well as the New York Times Crossword app. Once players are in the right place, they can start learning how to play.
Choose a starting word. This word must be five letters long and a real English word. It cannot be an offensive word or a proper noun. While they can be used as guesses, Wordle answers won’t repeat or ever be a plural noun ending in S or ES, so these should be avoided as well. Choose a word with five different common letters to get started.
Type the word into the app or site.
The letters will change colors.
Green are right, gray are wrong, and yellow letters are correct but in the wrong location or locations in the word.
Try another word, keeping the clues from the colors of the letters in mind.
Type it in and press enter, and these letters will change colors as well.
Players have a total of six tries to get to the answer.
