Words aren’t always easy to come by – especially the five-letter ones in Wordle.
But no worry, news week is here to guide you through your daily puzzle solving with some hints.
The rules are simple. If you find a letter in the word that is in the right place, it will turn green. If it’s part of the word but in the wrong place, it turns yellow. Gray matter is required and gray is also the color of a tile which is not part of the answer.
According to onlineslots.com, the probability of getting the right answer at the beginning is only 0.5 percent, but that first try is key to how the rest of the puzzle will play out.
Each attempt should gradually reveal the answer as you search through your memory banks for different combinations of letters.
The game was the creation of software developer Josh Wardle, who started work on it in 2013 with his partner Palak Shah. The puzzle was completed during the COVID-19 pandemic and released in late 2021, with the title being a pun on his last name.
Being played by a few dozen people, its global reach was assured when it was purchased The New York Times for an unknown sum. It has quickly become part of the daily routine for tens of millions of people around the world.
Wordle has also inspired a number of other daily puzzles, such as the globetrotting game Worldle and the math-based Nerdle.
