Why Wordle Is the Internet’s Favorite New Game

You’ve probably seen a bunch of gray, yellow, and green emoji squares on social media… Those people are posting their scores to the game that has taken off during the pandemic called “Wordle.” The rules are fairly simple: users try to guess the word of the day in six attempts. When a letter of the word is in the correct location, the space turns green. When a letter is in the word but in the wrong location, the space turns yellow. Letters that are not in the word are grayed out.

The unique part? It is only one word per day, and everyone in the world is trying to guess the same word.
