Functioning of the Wordle
When playing wordle word today, players have six opportunities to correctly guess a five-letter word. After making a guess, the letters in that word will take on a variety of hues. There is the symbolic significance attached to each color.
- If the input letter is green, it is a perfect match for the input space.
- The letter you entered is part of the correct word, but it’s in the wrong spot.
- Gray = the letter you entered isn’t used anywhere in the solution.
Literally, tepid means barely warm and is often used to describe the temperature of liquids like water. The phrase “the atmosphere of the room was tepid,” for instance, suggests that nobody in the room was particularly enthusiastic or impressed.

Wordle: How to Play
Wordle is a simple game of word association. The goal is to make as few guesses as possible (6 total) before revealing the correct five-letter word. When you make a guess, the letters in your chosen word will either turn green if they belong where you think they do or yellow if they belong where you think they don’t.
With these hints, you can begin to narrow down the correct word by determining which letters are present and where they should go. Visit Wordle’s website to give it a shot yourself. There is only one new Wordle puzzle each day, so if you want to play again, you’ll have to wait until tomorrow.
In what way did Wordle first come into existence?
Therefore, after some editing, Wardle made it available on his Power Language website.
The game came out in October of 2021, and by the end of the year, it was drawing in two million players per day. The New York Times made Wardle an offer to buy Wordle in January 2022, and he accepted. The deal was worth seven figures. Congratulations, Mr. Wardle. Really, you’ve done a fantastic job.
Could there be a blacklist of words for Wordle?
Any five-letter English word that you enter will be considered a guess by Wordle.There are still thousands of possible answers, of course, but it means the answer will never be a word as obscure as, say, “THIOL”, “CAIRD”, or “MALIC” (yes, those are all real words).
On extremely rare occasions, the New York Times may decide not to publish a particular word as the day’s Wordle answer, usually due to its potential association with controversial events in the news or in politics. Upon hearing that Roe v. Wade could be overturned in the United States, the New York Times changed the March 30th word from “FETUS” to “SHINE” because of the word’s perceived political overtones.
Are you finding Wordle to be too simplistic?
There are a few things you can do to up the ante and make Wordle more difficult for you if you find it getting too easy. To begin, select “Hard Mode.” Click the settings cog in the top-right corner of the Wordle page to access these options. In Hard Mode, highlighted letters are mandatory for subsequent guesses.
Playing by our “Ultra-Hard” rules will take it to a whole new level. This implies that each of your guesses has an equal chance of being correct. When playing on Hard Mode, if you typed “MOIST” and the “O” turned yellow, you might be tempted to make “POLAR” your next word, despite knowing that it is obviously incorrect because the “O” is in the wrong place. That’s against the rules of “Ultra-Hard” mode.
Worldle, in which you have to identify a country from the world by its outline, is one of our favorites.
