What is Wordle?
The rules are very simple. You have up to six attempts to guess the 5-letter word. “Each guess must be a valid 5-letter word. After each guess, the color of the tiles will change to indicate how close you are to the word. ”
Play Wordle on any device you want, Android, iPhone, PC or Mac, and the website will track your progress. Only one puzzle is released per day and everyone gets the same word, so many people share their results or Screenshots with you. So far, Wordle and its alternatives are simple websites, so you don’t need to get them through the app store. Select the links below to guess new words.
