Every day, millions of people take a few moments out of their day to solve the day’s Wordle.
The premise is the same as always: one five-letter word per day and six attempts to guess it.
Each guess must be a valid 5-letter word and the color of the tiles will change to show how close your guess was to the word. If a letter is in the right place, the tile turns green, if it is in the wrong place, it turns yellow and if the letter is not in the word at all, the tile goes gray.
A play on the name of its creator, software engineer Josh Wardle, work on the online puzzle began in 2013 and was finished during the COVID-19 lockdown, with help from Wardle’s partner Palak Shah.
When it was released online at the end of 2021, it was played by a few dozen people a day. But it soon became an online sensation, attracting millions of regular players—and that reach has continued to grow since it was acquired by The New York Times Company for an undisclosed sum earlier this year.
Wardle previously told Newsweek that he liked the idea that “everyone around the world was trying to solve the exact same word at the exact same time.”
Many Wordle aficionados aim to guess the word of the day in as few tries as possible, but every now and then, it will stump even the most avid player.
The answer resets every day, so players only have 24 hours to guess each day’s word and retain their Wordle win streak.
The limited number of guesses available to solve each day’s puzzle means a good strategy is crucial. It’s always best to start with a vowel-rich word, say “audio,” or “adieu,” and avoid less common letters like X, Q and Z until you have a better sense of what the answer could be.
But for those still struggling, Newsweek has provided some handy hints (and if all else fails, the answer) to help Wordle fans maintain their win streaks.
