Have you heard about the new Word game ‘Wordle’ that is supposedly creating ripples around the Internet?
Welcome to yet another addiction just as the third wave looms large! (face palm!)
For the uninitiated – what is ‘Wordle’?
It is the latest game that is rocking the Internet. You can find the game at:
It is a one player game wherein the player gets six tries to guess the five letter ‘WORD OF THE DAY‘
May be the most curious part about the game when I saw it for the first time for me was the yellow, black and green tiles and the they were arranged. It seemed to be some sort of cryptographic algorithm!! 🙂 Why were they arranged that way and what was the reason behind their colors was my first thought….if you are as curious as me, read on to know more…:)
This is how the game is played:
- The player has to guess the five letter ‘WORD OF THE DAY’
- You get six tries to guess the word
- Once the player guesses the WORD OF THE DAY correctly, the tiles turn all green! 🙂
3. You can type a word and if any of the alphabets typed is present in the ‘WORD OF THE DAY’, it will turn yellow similar to the picture below:
As an example in the above case, the alphabets ‘A’ and ‘B’ are present in the ‘WORD OF THE DAY’ but in different positions, so the tiles turn yellow….so the player goes for a second guess…
4. In the second guess, if the player types an alphabet and if it is present at the exact same position as the ‘WORD OF THE DAY’, it turns green…
As an example, the alphabet ‘B’ appears in the exact same place as in the original ‘WORD OF THE DAY’, hence the tile turns green…
The player continues to play the game and guess the 5 letter WORD OF THE DAY by making use of the yellow and green tile clues… till all the tiles turn green….
Once all the tiles turn green within the six tries, the player has guessed the ‘WORD OF THE DAY and is a winner!! 🙂 The result will look like the one given below:
