How Wordle Works

In Wordle, you are presented with five empty boxes to work with, and you must figure out which five-letter secret word fits in those boxes using no more than six guesses.

Start with a word like “RAISE” – this is good because it contains three common vowels and no repeated letters. Hit enter and the boxes will show you which letters you got right or wrong.

If a box becomes ⬛️, that letter is not in the secret word at all. 🟨 means the letter is in the word, but not in this position. 🟩 means you nailed the letter, it’s in the word and in the right place.

In the next row, repeat the process for your next guess using what you learned from your previous guess. You have six tries and can only use real words (so no filling in the boxes with EEEE to see if there is an E).

Wordle was originally dreamed up by software engineer Josh Wardle as a surprise to his partner who loves word games. From there it spread to his family and was eventually made public. It didn’t take long before it became so popular that it was sold to The New York Times for seven figures. It is surely only a matter of time before we all communicate only in tricolor boxes.
