Wordle’s backstory and how to play

Wordle is a free online game that gives users a five letter word every day to guess. The word unlock has more to do with code cracking than linguistics, but it’s a fun contest for users of all ages.

Start by guessing what the five letter word is. Based on your guess, letters will appear in green or yellow. If letters are yellow, it means that the letters appear somewhere in the word, but not in the positions you chose.

If the letters are green, you have chosen the correct letters in the correct order. You can then keep guessing until you get the word right. You have a total of six attempts to guess.
