Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Npr.org: “This is Wordle, the word game everyone on Twitter won't stop talking about”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

In Wordle, you have six guesses to figure out the five-letter word. James Doubek/NPR hide caption

The task is to guess a five-letter word. You have six tries. After each guess, the tiles change colors to show which letters are not in the word (gray), which letters are in the word but in the wrong position (yellow) and which ones are correctly in the word and in the right position (green).

Once you finish, you can post on Twitter how many guesses it took without spoiling the challenge for others. It's the same word every day for everyone, and you can play only once a day.

The game was created by software engineer Josh Wardle of New York City, who told The New York Times he made Wordle — a riff on his name — originally for his partner, Palak Shah, who is a fan of word games. Shah also helped with some of the development.

It has grown from its debut in October to having more than 2 million daily players by last weekend, Wardle told The Guardian. And Wardle did it without ads or gimmicks. You don't have to sign up with your email or give personal information to play.
