Wordle is a word-based puzzle game that you can play once per day, and everyone plays the same puzzle. You guess 5 letter words, and for each guess the game will tell you how many letters you have correct. It’s here and you can check it out now.
This is a play on some very old word game, I’m sure, but that doesn’t diminish it. Wordle is great because of how its executed and all the little things it does right that add up to something many can’t stop playing.
I’ve also been enjoying this game. It’s a quick fix, but it’s fun when you have the ability to share with people. I have a group from college I still speak to and we share our results for the day which adds to the fun for me.
If you’re one that likes to play more than one game a day there’s a great open source project from Katherine Peterson called Word Master.
If you haven’t, give Wordle a try. You won’t regret it.
