How Wordle works
Wordle was originally conceived by software engineer Josh Wardle as a surprise for his partner who loves word games. From there it spread to his family and was finally made public. It wasn’t long before he became so popular that he was sold to the New York Times for seven figures. Of course, it’s only a matter of time before we all communicate exclusively in three-color boxes.
In Wordle, you are given five empty fields to work with, and you need to figure out which five-letter secret word fits those fields using no more than six guesses.
Start with a word like “INCREASE” – which is good because it contains three regular vowels and does not contain repeated letters. Press Enter and the fields will show you which letters you entered correctly and which did not. If the field turns gray, that letter is not included in the secret word at all (note that there is also a colorblind mode). If it turns yellow, that letter is in the word, but in a different place. And if it turns green, then both the letter and the location are correct. It is important to note that yellow or green also does not exclude the possibility of a letter appearing twice. In our example, if A is green, it could mean that there is only one A, or it could mean that the answer is a word like “MAFIA”.
On the next row, repeat the process for your next guess, using what you learned from the previous guess. You have six tries and can only use real words (so you don’t have to fill in the EEEEE fields to see if there’s an E).
