Wordle is everywhere. It is completely unavoidable. If you spend a lot of your time on Twitter, you must have seen posts with yellow, grey, and green boxes. That’s Wordle.
Social media users are busy posting their Wordle scores, appearing like coded language. We are here to decode the mystery for those who haven’t jumped on the bandwagon yet.
It is a daily word game that you can find and play online. It’s simple and fun, like a crossword. However, it can be played just once a day. Thus, every 24 hours, there’s a word of the day, and you have to figure it out. People are busy playing the guessing game in which they have to guess a five-letter word. Millions of players across the world guess the word simultaneously, and a new game is uploaded every day. The game has reeled in a lot of players, including our Nobel Laureate Malala Yousafzai.
The game’s rules are pretty simple. You get six tries to guess the five-letter word, and every time you input the letters, the boxes will light up grey or green or yellow, showing what letter you got right.
The colour green indicates that the letter is included in the day’s word.
Yellow shows that the letter is included in the word of the day but must be placed in a different box. Meanwhile, grey indicates that the letter isn’t in the word of the day.
It is pertinent to state that the game is quite addictive. The feature of being able to brag about the results on social media makes it more fun. The one puzzle per day makes people feel that they only get one shot, and if they mess up, they’ll have to wait until tomorrow to play again.
Wordle isn’t just a game; it’s a conversation starter.
