Wordle Today #590 Tips and Answers for Monday January 30th Challenge

Today’s wordle left some gamers confused, so Newsweek offered five helpful tips to help steer them in the right direction.

And for fans still unsure of the word when it comes to their last guess, the answer is provided at the end of the article.

The game, which involves players from around the world, asks users to solve the puzzle by guessing a mysterious five-letter word, in six tries or less.

The puzzle refreshes every day, with a new word to be solved from scratch.

Wordle tries to help users find the correct word by using a color-coding system: each correct letter in a guess turns green, or yellow if it’s in the word but is currently in the wrong place, or gray if it’s just incorrect.

The origins of “Wordle”

Game inventor Josh Wardle, a software engineer, created the puzzle to play with his partner. He started working on it in 2013, but came back to it during the pandemic and perfected it, naming the game with a riff on his own last name.

Wardle released the game to the public in October 2021 and it quickly became a global phenomenon, gaining over 45 million users after starting with just 90 active players.

He said he only wanted to offer one game per day because he’s always been “wary of apps that want to eat up all your time.”

The software engineer sold his game to The New York Times for an undisclosed seven-figure sum in January 2022 and the puzzle moved to publication in February. The word game became so popular that it inspired a number of other everyday games, such as the music-based Heardle and the math-based Nerdle.
