Today’s Wordle Puzzle could test even the most skilled word puzzle player, but luckily Newsweek is handy if you need a little help figuring it out.
Since Wordle launched last year, the game has become a worldwide phenomenon with millions of players logging on every day to solve the five-letter mystery word of the day.
Creator Josh Wardle took Wordle live in October 2021 after working on a game he and his partner could play during the COVID-19 pandemic.
When Wordle launched, it had some 90 active players and has since had over 45 million daily users.
The game became so popular that it inspired a number of similar puzzle solvers, such as the geography-based game World and on the subject of music Heardle.
In January of this year, The New York Times purchased Wordle for an undisclosed seven-figure sum. Wordle moved to publishing in February.
Wordle’s simple gameplay could explain how it became a global sensation in just a few months, and its meteoric rise can be seen in the following Statista chart:
Players have six tries to guess a five-letter word and are helped to find the correct answer through a color-coded system.
Green tiles are displayed when the letter is correct and in the correct place, yellow when the letter is correct but in the wrong place while gray is displayed when the letter is not in the five-letter word.
The Wordle puzzle resets every day, so if players are confused, they can just wait a while for another game.
But, some players would like some hints and hints to solve the word puzzle and there’s no shame in wanting a little help.
