How Does Wordle Work?

Wordle is a daily word-guessing game now hosted by the New York Times. In this game, you have six attempts to guess the word of the day, but each word has to have five letters.

You are judged based on the positioning of your letters. If you entered the word BROKE, as an example, the game will give you hints based on the letters used there. Say you got the letters R and K in grey boxes. That would indicate that those letters do not exist in the word of the day.

Then, you see that the B is in yellow; that means that letter exists in the final word but is not in the right position. The letters O and E are green, meaning they’re correct in terms of positioning. Now with R and K out of the picture, you guess the word GLOBE. If that ends up being the word of the day, you win!

The trick is to rule out as many letters as possible without repeats. The more letters you rule out, the easier it’ll be to deduce what the word is.

You can play Wordle for free now on a mobile device or on a PC via the New York Times’ website.
