The purpose of the game is pretty straightforward – you have six attempts to guess the 5-letter word of the day. The colors provide visual clues, with grey, yellow and green pointing you in the right direction. Sharing your score with friends or on social media is easy, thanks to the “Share” button that automatically generates a spoiler-free emoji version of your progress. But how many people actually do this?
Wordle is mostly played by English speakers, but the countries obsessed with the puzzle game may surprise you!
There is a high chance you have a favorite, foolproof word you always guess first. While vowel-packed options such as “adieu” and “irate” are a preferred choice for many, more than half of the UK-based players simply enjoy the thrill.
Admit it – how many times did you have to Google the meaning of today’s Wordle? If your daily vocabulary includes “caulk” and “ulcer,” consider yourself smart (or lucky)! Nonetheless, it is fascinating to see how Google Trends frequently picks up a spike in searches from frustrated Wordlers.
