Wordle is a simple and straightforward game, but in case you are new to the daily puzzle, this is how it works.
Fans are given six chances to correctly guess the five-letter word. For each guess, letter tiles will appear in one of the three colors. If the letter box turns gray, the letter will not appear in the word you are guessing.
If the tile turns yellow, then the letter you guessed is in the word, and not in the correct position. If the tile turns green, then the letter is in the word and in the right place.
You can share your score on social media (for bragging rights), while the app keeps track of your stats. In fact, if you’ve been a fan since the early days of Wordle, you’ve probably built a winning streak.
If you fail to solve the puzzle, you will have to wait until the next day for a new Wordle to be released – in addition to resetting your streak to zero.
