It’s the simple word game that’s gone viral in 2022!

You might have seen those tiny red, amber and green tiles shared on the group chat or posted on social media and wondered what it could be. Chances are it’s Wordle.

Wordle is an online 5-letter word game.

Each day a new word is released and players have six attempts to guess what the word of the day is. During the guesses, tiles will change colour to help players get the word. A grey letter means it isn’t in today’s word, whilst a yellow letter signals it is in the world but wrong position. Then there’s a green letter which means it’s in the word and in the right place. Players select letters of the alphabet on the virtual keyboard and enter them into the 5 blank tiles. When they’re happy with their 5 letter word guess, they press the submit button. This then checks the word and lets you know if your word or some of the letters are correct. If it’s completely right the full 5 letters turn green.
