Learn more about Wordle
Every day Wordle presents you with six rows of five boxes, and it’s up to you to figure out which secret five-letter word is hidden in them.
You will start with a strong word (opens in a new tab) like ALERT—something containing multiple vowels, common consonants, and no repeated letters. Click Enter and the boxes will show you which letters you have correct or incorrect. If a box turns ⬛️, it means that letter is not in the secret word at all. 🟨 means that 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 second to go compliment the first, using another “good” word to cover any common letters you missed last time, while also trying to avoid any letter you now know because it’s not actually present in the today’s answer.
After that it’s just a matter of using what you’ve learned to narrow down your guesses to the correct word. You have six attempts in total and can only use real words (so don’t fill in the boxes with EEEEE to see if there is an E). Don’t forget that letters can also be repeated (eg: BOOKS).

Originally, Wordle was dreamed up by a software engineer Josh Wardle (opens in a new tab), as a surprise for his partner who loves puns. From there it reached his family, and was finally released to the public. The word puzzle game has since inspired many games like Wordle (opens in a new tab), refocusing the everyday trick around music or math or geography. It wasn’t long before Wordle became so popular sold to the New York Times for seven figures (opens in a new tab). It’s probably only a matter of time before we all just communicate in tri-colored boxes.
