Wordle is a popular word game made by Josh Wardle and later bought by the New York Times.
In Wordle the goal is to guess the daily five letter word in six tries. After your guess you receive colored feedback so you can understand how far from the correct answer you are. Green indicates a letter in the correct position. Yellow shows that the letter should be included in the correct word but are at the wrong spot. Black letter are not in any place.
The daily Wordle is the same for everyone, so you can compete with your friends and other players on social medias. One thing that made Wordle so successful is its special share method, that makes it possible to share your results without spoiling the correct answer. You share only the feedback colors from your guesses with emoji tiles.
