Wordle has five letters, you have six tries and if you solve it quickly you can be in seventh heaven.
But the guessing game can still leave some people scratching their heads, which is why Newsweek has provided some clues to get you over the line. Those with a less patient temperament can just keep scrolling down this page for the answer.
Choose a letter, any letter, and if it is in the word, it will turn yellow. If the letter is in the word and in the right place, it turns green. Easy? Well, maybe, but after the fourth or fifth try, players can search their memories for every letter combination and five-letter word they know.
The chances of getting the right answer on the first try are only 0.5 percent according to onlineslots.com, but the answer gradually reveals itself with each try, or at least it should.
This daily puzzle solution was the brainchild of software engineer Josh Wardle, who started working on his passion in 2013 with his partner Palak Shah. He completed the project during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The game was released with his last name at the end of 2021 and quickly became part of the daily life of people around the world. In a matter of months it went from a few dozen people to tens of millions and its global reach was secured when it was bought by The New York Times for an undisclosed sum.
Wordle has also inspired a number of other daily puzzles, such as the globetrotting game Worldle and the math-based Nerdle.
