Where did Wordle come from?
While engineer Josh Wardle originally created Wordle for his partner, the word-guessing game has since become a daily habit for thousands of players across the globe. In fact, Wordle became so popular that it was eventually bought by the New York Times.
Wordle has also inspired numerous fan-made clones and alternate iterations, such as Battle Royale Squabble, the music identification game Heardle, and variations like Dordle and Quordle that have you trying to guess multiple words at once. It has also provided plenty of content for TikTok creators, because sometimes it’s nice to watch someone solve a problem instead of doing it yourself.
Not the day you’re after? Here is Wordle’s response for January 7th.
What is the best Wordle starter word?
Like snowflakes, each initial word of Wordle has its own unique beauty. However, if you prefer to be strategic with your selection, we have some ideas to help you optimize your first move. Some helpful tips include choosing a word that has at least two different vowels in it and making sure it has some common consonants like S, T, R or N mixed in.
What happened to the Wordle archive?
In happier times, the entire archive of past Wordles was openly available for everyone to enjoy whenever they felt like a word puzzle. Unfortunately, this library has been deleted from the Internet, with the website’s creator saying that its removal was at the request of the New York Times.
Is Wordle getting harder?
Although it may seem like solving Wordle puzzles is harder than it used to be, the game isn’t getting any harder. However, you can make it harder, as Wordle has a hard mode that you can enable.
Why are there two different Wordle answers some days?
While conventional wisdom says that there should be only one Wordle solution on any given day, there are rare days where two different answers will be considered acceptable. That’s because the New York Times made changes to Wordle after it bought it, swapping out some answers for new ones.
Since then, the Times has added its updated word list, so this should happen even less often than before. To avoid any confusion, it’s a good idea to refresh your browser before you get stuck on a new puzzle.
