How to play Wordle

1
The task of the game is to guess the hidden word. First you need to enter in the first line a word consisting of the selected number of letters. Please note that this must be a real word.
2
After entering the word, press the Enter button on the virtual keyboard. Now pay attention to the color with which the letters are highlighted.
3
If the letter is not highlighted in color and remains gray, then there is no such letter in the hidden word. If the letter is highlighted in yellow, then such a letter is in the hidden word, but is located in another cell. If the letter is highlighted in green, then the letter is in the hidden word in this cell.
4
Please note that letters in a word can be repeated, that is, if a letter is highlighted in yellow or green, it can occur in the word either once or more than once.
5
Now type the following word on the second line and press Enter. When doing this, take into account the information about the letters and their location obtained in the first round.
6
Continue typing words in subsequent lines until you guess the hidden word. After completion, share the game and the result with your friends. And most importantly - you can play an unlimited number of times.

What kind of game is this - Wordle?

Wordle was invented by a developer from Brooklyn for his sweetheart. The creator's last name is Wardle, so the name of the game is a kind of pun.

At first, the couple played Wordle together, then the developer showed the game to his relatives, and then decided to publish it on the Internet for everyone who was interested. On the day of launch, 90 people played the game, and already some two months later - as many as 300 thousand.

Wardle himself believes that the secret of the game's popularity lies in its simplicity - there is no need to register on the site, there are no ads, just a fun pastime.

A distinctive feature of the original game is that it has a limit - only one game per day. An interesting decision, but not everyone liked it. The game is so addictive that you want to play more and more. And we have solved this problem - now it is infinitely replayable, so you can play an unlimited number of games and guess as many words as you want.

But how do you play Wordle?

Look. Your goal is to find out what word is hidden. By default, it consists of 5 letters, but on our site you can set the number of letters from 4 to 11. Then there are 6 lines, in each of which you can enter any existing word.

By entering the first word, you are trying not so much to guess the word right away, but simply the first step in the game, where you can get hints about the word that was guessed. After entering your first word and pressing the Enter button, all the letters of your word will turn into one of three colors - gray, yellow and green.

Depending on the color, you get information about which letters are in the hidden word and which are not there. Everything is pretty simple here. The letters that are gray in color - they are not in the hidden word, they can be excluded. The letters that will turn yellow - they are in the hidden word, but they are in a different place in the word. By the way, there is a possibility that there are more than one such letters in the word, because the letters may be repeated (or may not be repeated). But the main thing here is that they are definitely not where they are in the word that you entered.

And finally green letters. Congratulations, these letters are in the hidden word and are located exactly in the place where they are in your word. Here, too, one should not forget that these letters may be in the hidden word in other places (or may not be).

Then you enter the next word and the next, thus getting more and more information about the hidden word. Your task is to get enough information as quickly as possible to guess the hidden word. The fewer words you entered, the fewer attempts you made before guessing the word, the cooler you are! Both vocabulary and your ability to think logically are important here. Well, it's time to try!

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the Wordle game rules?

The rules of the Wordle game are quite simple. You need to guess the word in 6 attempts. To do this, you need to enter different words in turn and get hints. Colored squares serve as clues. A green square means that in the hidden word the letter is in this place. Yellow square - that such a letter is in the hidden word but in a different place. Gray square - there is no such letter.

What is the best word to start the Wordle game with?

The main recommendation for the first word is to choose a word that contains different letters and the most vowels. Great examples of such words are ADIEU, AUDIO or CANOE.

What dictionaries are used in the game?

For the English language (US version), we took as a basis the source: Letterpress word list. This dictionary consisted of approximately 275,000 words. Thanks to your feedback and suggestions, we regularly update our word list.

What does the message Not a valid word mean?

If you see such a message, then the word you entered is not in our dictionary. Most likely this means that this word either does not exist, or does not correspond to the rules of the game. If you do not agree with this, you can write to us at hello@wordleplay.com about it and we will consider updating.

You used not the real word. What should I do?

If it seems to you that a word has got into our dictionary that does not exist in the English American dictionary, then let us know at hello@wordleplay.com about it and we will consider making changes.

Can I make my own word or create a multi-word tournament?

Of course yes. Most recently, we have added two special modes to our site - Wordle Generator, which allows you to guess your own word or choose a random one and share the link with a friend to play together with the same word at the same time. The Wordle Tournament mode is also available. You can create a game consisting of several words at once and hold a real Wordle competition.

Can I download the app on my mobile or PC?

At the moment we do not have apps for iPhone (iOS) and Android. However, we plan to launch a version for Google Play in the near future. As soon as this happens, we will definitely notify our users.

What languages is the game available in?

Oh, that's a very good question and a point of pride for us. Our game is already translated into many languages and uses different dictionaries: American English, UK English, Spanish, German, French, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Polish, Turkish, Dutch, Swedish, Indonesian, Czech, Greek, Hungarian, Romanian, Slovak and Danish. The list will be even bigger soon.

Is it possible to choose the length of a word?

Yes, there is such a possibility. You can play modes with word length from 4 to 11 letters. To do this, click on the number symbol in the top menu, or open the settings if you are using a mobile device.

Are there more difficult versions of the game?

Yes, we have foreseen that the standard mode may seem too simple for you. In such a case, we have two more difficult Wordle options at once - Hard and Ultra Hard. In these modes, you need to follow the hints received in previous rounds. You'll have to sweat!

Are there other versions of the game?

We have special versions that completely contradict each other. The first is the version of the game for children. In the version of the Wordle for Kids game, the dictionary contains fewer words and they are simpler, and 3-letter words are also available. There is also a Lewdle variation - there, on the contrary, dictionaries consist of bad words that are more suitable for adults.
