What is Wordle, and why is it so popular?
Wordle is a web-based puzzle where players must guess a valid five letter word in six attempts or less. The tiles’ colors will change after each guess to indicate how close you were to the word. Everybody is given the same word every day, but after 24 hours the word changes. Millennials are the ones who are most interested in the game.
The game was created in collaboration with Josh Wardle (Wordle refers to his last name). Wardle, a Brooklyn-based software engineer, created the guessing game. It’s just a fun game.
Where can you play Wordle?
The web-based game Wordle can be played on a desktop browser or mobile device at www.powerlanguage.co.uk/wordle/. The website is simple and does not require complicated sign-ups. Simply go to the website and start playing.
Wordle might seem to be the most popular mobile game at the moment, but it still has some way to go before it can compete with other games, like Candy Crush and Words with Friends. Wordle is still popular and people are talking about it.
