Learn more about Wordle
Wordle gives you six rows of five boxes each day, and you must find out which secret five-letter word is hidden in them to keep your streak going.
you should start with a strong word (opens in a new tab) like ARISE or any other word that has a good mix of common consonants and lots of vowels. You’ll also want to avoid starting words with repeated letters because you’re wasting the chance of potentially eliminating or confirming an extra letter. When you hit enter, you’ll see which ones you got right and which ones you didn’t. If the box turns ⬛️, then there is no letter 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’ll want your next guess to complete the first, using another “good” word to cover any common letters you may have missed last time, while trying to avoid letters you know aren’t in today’s answer. Then just use what you’ve learned to narrow your guesses down to the right word. You have a total of six tries and you can only use real words and don’t forget that letters can be repeated too (e.g. BOOKS).

Originally, Wordle was invented by a software engineer Josh Wardle (opens in a new tab)as a surprise for your partner who loves word games. From there it spread to his family and was eventually made public. This word puzzle game has inspired a lot of people word games (opens in a new tab), re-centring the everyday trick around music, math or geography. It didn’t take long for Wordle to become so popular sold to the New York Times for seven figures (opens in a new tab). Surely it’s only a matter of time before we all communicate exclusively in tricolor boxes.
