Learn more about Wordle
Each day, Wordle presents you with six rows of five boxes, and it’s up to you to figure out which secret five-letter word is hiding in them.
You will start with a strong word (opens in a new tab) like ALERT – something that contains more vowels, regular consonants and no repeating letters. Press Enter and the boxes will show you which letters you got right or wrong. If a box turns ⬛️, it means the letter is not in the secret word at all. 🟨 means that the letter is in the word, but not in that position. 🟩 means you have the right letter in the right place.
You want your second half to compliment the first, using another “good” word to cover any common letters you missed last time, while trying to avoid letters you now know for a fact that don’t exist present in today’s answer.
After that, just use what you’ve learned to narrow down your guesses to the correct word. You have six attempts in total and can only use real words (so don’t fill the boxes with EEEEE to see if there is an E). Don’t forget that letters can also be repeated (eg BOOKS).

Originally Wordle was developed by software engineer Josh Wardle (opens in a new tab), as a surprise for the partner who loves puns. From there it spread to his family, and was eventually released to the public. The word puzzle has since inspired tons of games like Wordle (opens in a new tab), refocusing the daily gimmick around music or math or geography. It didn’t take long for Wordle to become so popular sold to the New York Times for seven figures (opens in a new tab). It is surely only a matter of time before we all communicate exclusively in three-coloured boxes.
