If you’re a fan of word games or just want to keep your vocabulary sharp, wordle today is an engaging game that requires both skill and luck. While the game can be frustrating at times, it’s never too hard to get past a few tries and figure out what today’s wordle answer is. Unlike many of the other popular mobile games, wordle is free to play and won’t break your bank balance. The game has been hugely successful and inspired a few spinoffs, including Weezle by Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo, Taylordle (Taylor Swift lyrics) and Dordle (Dictionary-based words).
The game is easy to pick up but difficult to master, and it’s also extremely relaxing to play – especially when compared to more stressful games like Scrabble or crossword puzzles. The fact that the game allows you to compete with friends and other players online makes it even more fun, although you can still enjoy it just for yourself.
Each day, the New York Times releases a five-letter word that Wordle players must try to guess. You’re given six tries to work out the word and your answers are highlighted in various colors depending on how close you are. Fortunately, there are some helpful tips and tricks you can follow to increase your chances of guessing correctly. For starters, you should try to start with a word that contains a balanced mix of vowels and consonants. Then, try to use the most common letters such as CR, SH and ST. Finally, remember that the letters in Wordle can repeat – so be careful to only include the correct letters!
