    FAQ

    What is Wordle?

    Wordle is a web-based word game created and developed by Welsh software engineer Josh Wardle and owned and published by The New York Times Company since 2022.

    When was Wordle released?

    Wardle made Wordle available to the public in October 2021.

    What happened to Wordle Archive?

    Wordle players could access past Wordle puzzles through the World Archive website, but the New York Times took the site down.

    Is Wordle getting harder?

    Not really, but as the commonly used 5-letter English words are used, you will encounter some less popular ones that may give you a more challenging time. You can use the game’s hard mode to make Wordle harder.

    Why are there multiple correct Wordle Answers some days?

    In simple words, after the New York Times acquired Wordle, they may make changes to it occasionally, either for political correctness, in case a word is controversial, or to avoid obscure answers that will give a hard time to players.

    How to play Wordle?

    It is best to start with a five-letter word with the most popular letters or one with the most vowels. Words like SOARE, ROATE, RAISE, SRATE, SANET, CRATE, POACE, and ADIEU are great starters.

    From there on, you have another five guesses to figure out the answer. Remember that you can use only valid English 5-letter words to help you. Letters marked with green are in the correct position, while when a letter is marked yellow, you have guessed the correct letter but the wrong position. Wordle answers can contain the same letter more than once.

    Your goal should be to eliminate as many letters as possible while putting the letters you have already discovered in the correct order.
