Over the past week, my family and I have started a new text message series. It is a sacred space. Each message is usually three words long, like “Speech in three.” Yes, like so many others on social media and beyond, we found out Wordle, a simple word game It’s a puzzle – the same for everyone – to play every day. You only need to guess a single word and you’ve got six attempts.
The game has been running for almost 200 days, but it’s really grown in the past weekAnd it’s easy to see why.
Difficult, but not too difficult. You don’t have to Specifically smart to be good at it, but it totally makes you feel like the smartest person ever. There’s also nothing to download. You just need to open it in your browser. Because it’s the same quiz for everyone, there’s a way to directly compare yourself to others: A low-stakes contest that’s fun and doesn’t disappoint. Many Polygon employees discovered the game today – nothing – and we are all eagerly waiting from tomorrow.
Here are the rules:
- Just guess a word. Any word with five letters.
- Hints will appear after each word guess, indicating whether the letters are in the right place, in the right word but in the wrong place, or not at all.
- Using these cues, make another guess and repeat until you get the word – or fail to understand the word and lose.
There’s a difficulty mode, too, for players who want more of a challenge: At the top, right of the screen in the browser, there’s a gear. Click that, then click the slider to go into hard mode, which means you have to follow the hints you’ve discovered – and can’t just type in random words to find more letters or points. than.
Creator Josh Wardle added a smart share button that makes it easy for you to share your predictions without spoilers, creating those cute emoji panels you’ve probably seen on social media. Click share just save these emojis to your clipboard and then you can boast your word game skills on social media or in Wordle text theme. A puzzle of the day is both confusing and at its most important: It makes every morning special, like playtime. Wordle A small event that we all have been waiting for.
