What is Wordle and how to play?
Wordle is a free online word game that was developed by US software engineer Josh Wardle and his partner and is now published on the website Power Language (powerlanguage.co.uk). The game requires its players to guess a five-letter word each day, which is issued every 24 hours. Here’s how you can play the game:
- Every 24 hours a new word of the day comes up, and it’s up to the player to decide what that is.
- Wordle gives players six chances to predict a randomly chosen five-letter word.
- A virtual keyboard and six rows and five columns, each displayed on the Wordle website. Each slot represents a letter, and each row represents the following guess.
- If you place the appropriate letter in the right place, it turns green, as shown above. When a correct letter is typed in the wrong place, it turns yellow. A letter that is not part of a word in any way appears gray.
