Word games have been around for a very long time, but they have never been quite as popular as in recent months. The word game that tops the charts, Wordle, has continued to grow in popularity since its debut in October 2021. Wordle has spawned many spinoff games and plays a large part in many people's daily routines.
This game challenges players to come up with a five-letter word using deductive reasoning. This may not sound difficult, but here are only a limited number of guesses per day making it far more brain-intensive.

How to Play Wordle
Wordle can be kind of confusing to players jumping in for the first time. We've listed steps below that may make the game more understandable for new players.
- Input any five-letter word using the on-screen keyboard and then hit Enter.
- Once players have made their first guess, the game will give their results by changing the colors of some of the letters. If the letter turns gray, it is not found in that day's correct answer. If the letter turns yellow, it belongs in that day's correct answer but is in the wrong place within the word. If the letter turns green, the letter is not only in that day's correct answer but also falls in the same position as it is in that guess.
- Players should continue making guesses, whittling down the pool of potentially correct answers until they make their final guess. Players can only make six guesses per puzzle, so it is important to choose words carefully.
- If players get all of the letters to turn green, it means they have guessed the correct word and can add to their streak.
