How to Win at Wordle (and Wordle Alternatives to Try if You're Obsessed)
Your social media feed is probably littered with grids of gray, green, and yellow squares. And if you haven't already gotten sucked into the Wordle fun, it's a simple (and addicting) word-guessing game created by Josh Wardle to play with his partner. It's kind of like Hangman—you get six guesses to try to find a five-letter word. Letters turn green if they're in the puzzle and in the right spot, yellow if they're in the puzzle but in the wrong spot, and gray if they aren't in the word.
You can only play Wordle once per day, and everyone gets the same puzzle to solve each day, which makes it a fun and friendly competition you can have with your friends and coworkers. (And creates a lot of debate as to best strategies you should use to win.)
Whether you're a Wordle newbie or a seasoned player, here are a few tried-and-true Wordle strategies to get you started on the road to mastering the game.
