Whether you are a fan of word games or not, you must try the now world-famous word game called Wordle. Every day you will have the opportunity to compete against the whole world, trying to guess the same world in only 6 attempts.

What is Wordle?

Wordle is a web-based game that has gone viral on every social network worldwide. This funny little word-guess game was developed by the software engineer Josh Wardle, who created it for his partner, a fan of word games. It is not the first time Josh Wardle made something that amazed many people on the internet; in April 2017, he created a vast collaborative art social experiment called Place.

What are the key features of Wordle?

  • Guess the word: You will get 6 attempts to guess a randomly picked five-letter word from scratch. For each shot, if your letter is in the right spot, it will appear green; if it is part of the word but not in the right spot, it will appear yellow; otherwise, it will appear gray (and you should not use it again). Of course, you must enter an existing word (and not some AOEIU kind of guess as I firstly tried), and you will be able to see all the previous words you tried.

  • Compete against the world: All the world will be able to try to guess the same word. That kind of challenge makes this simple game addictive and creates considerable stakes. Every day you will be able to challenge yourself, your friends, and all the other players in the entire world. Pretty challenging and exciting.
  • Share and compete: A true challenge for every human deserves proper ways to share your result without spoiling other people. That is why once you successfully or unsuccessfully complete the daily puzzle, you will be invited to share it with an image displaying all the attempts and the corresponding color for each letter. Every day you will be able to share your results with all your friends, the way you want, including on social media such as Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, and using any messaging app you want.

  • Elaborate your strategy: The language contains a finite amount of words (and if you dare search into the code, you will be able to see all the possibilities), and each time you try to guess the word, you get more clues to find the unique solution. It seems complicated that you only have 6 attempts and an incredible number of possible guesses, but it leaves a lot of room for optimization and correlations. Many people already have created different solutions, and some of them can make you guess the final words in about 3.5 guesses on average. Long story short, try using "ORATE" or "RAISE" as your first guess, remember the same letter can appear twice in the same word, and adapt your strategy.
  • Handy and simple interface: The Wordle interface focuses on efficiency. You only see your attempts and the virtual keyboard that helps you know the state of each letter throughout your shots. This simplicity by design makes the whole game very accessible and user-friendly .
