This is Wordle, except for the rude words

When a game as simple and wholesome as Wordle comes out, it’s only a matter of time before the ill-intentioned get started.Therefore, we have lewd, a new clone of Wordle created by Rogue One writer Gary Whitta (disclosure: he used to edit PC Gamer).Calling it a clone is a bit of an overstatement: it’s basically Yes Wordle, except it’s only a five-letter word that you can’t say out loud in school.

I managed to win on the second line of the first attempt. Playing Lewdle is probably going to be one of the most boring and wasteful things I’ve done this week, but I’m still proud. The word is “boner,” which is slang for a penis erection. According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, the word falls under the category of “impolite” rather than “vulgar” or “obscene”. But I guess it’s absolutely lewd.
