The game asks players to guess a mysterious five-letter word, in six tries or less.
The puzzle refreshes every day, with a new word to be solved from scratch. wordle tries to help players identify the correct word by using a color coding system; each correct letter in a guess turns green, or yellow if it’s in the word but in the wrong place, or gray if it’s incorrect.
The origins of “Word”
Game inventor Josh Wardle, a software engineer, created the puzzle to play with his partner. He started working on it in 2013, but came back to it during the pandemic to perfect it, naming the game with a riff on his own last name.
Wardle released the game to the public in October 2021 and it quickly became a global phenomenon, gaining over 45 million users after starting with just 90 active players. He said he only wanted to offer one game per day because he’s always been “wary of apps that want to eat up all your time”.
The software engineer sold his game to The New York Times for an undisclosed seven-figure sum in January 2022 and the puzzle moved to publication in February. The word game has become so popular that it has inspired a number of other everyday games like the musical game Heardleand math-based calculation Nerdle.
