How Word works
In Wordle, you are presented with five empty boxes to work with, and you need to find a five-letter secret word that fits into those boxes. You only have six guesses to nail it.
Start with the best Wordle starting word (opens in a new tab), like “RAISE”, that’s good because it contains three common vowels and no repeating letters. Hit Enter and the boxes will show you which letters you got right or wrong.
If a square rotates ⬛️, that letter is not in the secret word at all. 🟨 means that the letter is in the word, but not in that position. 🟩 means you nailed the letter, it’s in the word and in the right place.
As you will know from our best Wordle tips (opens in a new tab), in the next row, repeat the process for your second guess using what you learned from your previous guess. You have six tries and you can only use real words (so don’t fill in the boxes with EEEEE to see if there is an E).
Wordle was originally devised by software engineer Josh Wardle as a surprise for his partner who loves puns. (opens in a new tab). From there it spread to his family and eventually became public. Since then, the word puzzle game has inspired tons of games like Wordle. (opens in a new tab), refocusing the daily hack around music, math or geography. It wasn’t long before Wordle became so popular that he was sold to the New York Times for seven figures. (opens in a new tab). Surely it’s only a matter of time before we all communicate solely on tricolor boxes.
