Play OverviewPlay Overview

Wordle (2021) is a daily puzzle game where you (and anyone else playing that day) try and guess the secret word. You get six guesses that must be real words. Each letter is then coloured to provide clues: green for the right letter in the right place, yellow for the right letter but not in the right position, and grey for letters not used in the word.

The format is near-identical to the long-running Lingo TV show, although takes the play in a communal direction. You can only play once a day, but this means that everyone in the world is trying to guess the same word every day. Once you have succeeded (or failed) you can share your results on social media. Cleverly, this shares a grid of squares that are coloured to show how many letters each of your guesses revealed but not what the word is.

You can play Wordle for free. Because it's played in a web browser you can play on any device. Crazy Games
