What is Dordle? – A Wordle-like Game

Try and tackle two words at once—if you dare!

The word-solving puzzle game, Wordle, has taken the online world by storm. Players can't seem to get enough of guessing words every day. What if players could now do this with another game, only doubled?

What is Dordle?

Dordle is a word-guessing game created in 2022 by Zaratustra. The game is directly inspired by Josh Wardle's 2021 game, Wordle, which is now owned by The New York Times. Like Wordle, Dordle players are tasked with finding a mystery word using a series of guesses. The twist with Dordle is that players are trying to simultaneously solve two words.

How to Play Dordle

Dordle has two different modes: free play and daily modes. Daily mode and free play work the same way. The only difference is that, in daily mode, players have the same word as everyone else for the day. Free play mode endlessly brings up random puzzles.

When playing either mode, the rules are the same as Wordle, except for the caveat that players are guessing for both words simultaneously. There are seven guesses available for both words, together. Yellow squares mean that the letter is within the word but in a different spot. Green tiles mean that the letter is in the correct location.
