Word game fans now have an option for daily entertainment with NYTimes Wordle, a word guessing game with a strange charm. There will be only one puzzle per day to challenge every player around the world. You can save this page to play the game for free every day.
In detail, the game challenges players to find a 5-letter word through up to 6 attempts. The hidden word is a random pick and also the only word of the day that all players around the world need to find.
No clue is given from the beginning. Players will get clues that are the colored tiles through each wrong guess. The tiles are distinguished by 3 colors including green, yellow and gray, respectively representing the correct letter, the letter contained in the word but in the wrong spot, and the letter not in the word.
If you find the hidden word, you can share the achievement on social networks without revealing the answer.
The rules of the game are quite easy-to-understand, but you are required to analyze your words to find the final answer within 6 trials.
Read on for the detailed steps to play below:
STEP 1: Type any 5 letter word and press Enter.
After you press Enter, the letters will instantly change color.
Green: The letters match perfectly.
Yellow: The letters are in the word but need to be repositioned.
Gray: The letters are not in the word.
STEP 2: Based on the color of the letters to make the next guess if the previous prediction is not correct.
STEP 3: Repeat the above 2 steps until you find the hidden word.
When you find the hidden word, all the letters turn green.
Do you know how to extend the World winning streak? Don't miss the tips shared below.
Choose the word with multiple vowels for the first guess.
Most English words consist of at least one vowel. Therefore, guessing correctly the vowel and its position in the hidden word also makes it easier to find the final answer. AUDIO, ADIEU, RAISE, ARISE, … are recommended as potential words.
Pick the second word with completely different letters from the first word.
This increases your chances of finding green or yellow letters that are different from the ones you found in the previous guess. Simultaneously, you can also remove more letters that are not in the word (the letter in gray).
Think of common letter combinations.
In English, there are many common letter combinations such as ER, LY, CH, TR, ST... If you come across those letters, don't ignore the possibility of putting them next to each other.
Do not repeat gray letters.
The letters in gray are definitely not in the word. So, if your next guess includes a grayed letter, it's definitely not a correct answer. That means you have wasted one of your guesses.
