Learn more about Wordle
Each day, Wordle presents you with six rows of five boxes, and it’s up to you to find out which secret five-letter word is hidden inside.
You’ll want it start with a strong word (opens in new tab) like ALERT – something that contains multiple vowels, regular consonants, and no repeated letters. Press Enter and the boxes will show which letters you got right or wrong. If a cell turns ⬛️, it means that the letter is not in the secret word at all. 🟨 means the letter is in the word, but not in that position. 🟩 means you have the right letter in the right place.
You want your second try to compliment the first, using another “good” word to cover common letters you missed last time, while also trying to avoid any letter you now know isn’t there in today’s answer.
After that, it’s just a matter of using what you’ve learned to narrow your guesses down to the correct word. You have a total of six attempts and can only use real words (so no filling in boxes with EEEEE to see if there is an E). Don’t forget that letters can also be repeated (e.g. BOOKS).

Originally, Wordle was created by a software engineer Josh Wardle (opens in new tab), as a surprise for his partner who likes word games. From there, it spread to his family and was eventually released to the public. The word puzzle game has inspired tons since then games like Wordle (opens in new tab), refocusing the everyday gimmick around music or math or geography. It didn’t take long for Wordle to become as popular as it was sold to the New York Times for seven figures (opens in new tab). Surely it is only a matter of time before we all communicate exclusively in tri-colored boxes.
