Whether you start your day with a Wordle brainteaser or save it for the evening, our days are not complete until we’ve tackled the word puzzle.
But just because we play the daily puzzle regularly, does not always mean solving it is a walk in the park. Never fear though, because Newsweek has provided some tips to help you on your way.
The game launched publicly in 2021 and features a five-letter word that can be a noun, adjective or verb.
Players get a maximum of six attempts to solve the puzzle by typing in words they think the answer could be. They’re helped along the way with a color-coded system. A green tile shows a letter is correct, yellow tiles indicate the letter appears in the word but is in the wrong spot and a gray tile tells you the letter is not in that day’s puzzle at all.
The online word game Wordle is shown on a cell phone in Houston, Texas, on January 12, 2022. The game went viral after initially gaining momentum in October of 2021.

Wordle’s creator, Josh Wardle, initially invented the game for his girlfriend who liked doing word puzzles and has explained why it has become a global sensation.
“You keep them hooked without taking over their lives,” Wardle told Newsweek of the game in January 2022. “It’s also interesting because this [notion] runs counter to a lot of what you expect from mobile games.
“The assumption is that they’re supposed to keep you engaged at all times, but most people can solve a Wordle puzzle in about 5 minutes and then forget about it.”
