The news article discusses the popular word puzzle game called Wordle and provides clues, tips, and strategies for solving it. Wordle was originally created as a gift by engineer Josh Wardle for his partner and has since become a global phenomenon. The game has gained so much popularity that it was purchased by the New York Times, and even TikTok creators live stream themselves playing it.
The article also mentions different variations of Wordle created by fans, such as Squabble, Heardle, Dordle, and Quordle, which add different twists to the game. It highlights that the game is not necessarily getting harder over time, but players can choose to turn on Wordle’s Hard Mode for a more challenging experience.
The Wordle archive, which used to be available to anyone, has been taken down at the request of the New York Times. The Times has also made changes to the game, resulting in occasional acceptance of two different answers. However, the article states that the Times has added its own updated word list to minimize this occurrence. The solution to the Wordle puzzle mentioned in the article is the word “LOYAL,” and the article concludes by mentioning that tomorrow there will be a new Wordle puzzle for players to solve.
