How Wordle works
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 box turns into ⬛️, that letter is not in the secret word at all. 🟨 means that the letter is in the word but in the wrong place. 🟩 means that you have nailed the letter, it is in the word and in the right place.
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).
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.
