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.
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!
So, a certain word of 5 letters is guessed. Let's try to enter the first English word of 5 letters that comes to mind. The word BREAD came to mine, and I will type it.
After entering the word bread, I pressed the Enter button. Two letters from my word were highlighted in yellow. This means that there are letters R and E in the hidden word. But they are in other places. But the letters B, A and D are missing in the desired word. Well, let's type another random word in the second row and press Enter.
The second word I entered was COURT. Here at once 4 letters received yellow color. Now, based on two attempts, we know that the desired word contains the letters O, U, R, T, E. But we don’t know in what order they go. But the right word doesn't come to mind. Well, let's try some word containing some of these letters.
That word became OUGHT. And here we got a lot of new useful information. The letters O and U are highlighted in green, which means that in the word we are looking for, they are in these places. So our word starts with OU and also contains the letters R, T, E. I think I know this is the word OUTER! Let's check.
Bingo! We guessed the word in 4 attempts. This is a good result for such a difficult word. Try it yourself now.
