If you recently opened Twitter (which is always a bad idea), you may have seen at least one person in your feed, if not a few people, posting strange, contextless messages composed of numbers and colored squares. Something like this:
Word 195 3/6
No, this is not the code to activate brainwashed agents and lead them to the blind spot (as far as we know) of the next assassination target.It is Wordle. If you use Google to search, it will take you to read a series of exciting articles about Wordle. If you are lucky, you can also find the actual Wordle website Where can I play for free.
Wordle is a daily word game that can be played in the browser. It can be used as a brain teaser and welcome a few minutes a day as a distraction. Only one puzzle is available every day, so you can’t spend a few hours on Wordles. Honestly, this is a bit good! It only takes a few minutes, is fun, and can be a bit challenging without taking up the entire afternoon.
Wordle is made by a software engineer Josh Wardle (Really) Who created the game for partners who like word games, then sent it to family members who also like it, and then released it to the public Come back in october.
“This is something that encourages you to spend three minutes a day,” Wardle told the New York Times. “That’s it. Like, it doesn’t want you more time.”
How to play Wordle
In Wordle, you will see five empty boxes, and you need to use no more than six guesses to find out which secret five-letter words fit these boxes. Start with words like FARTS. Press Enter and the box will display your correct or incorrect letter. If a box turns gray, the letter does not appear in the secret language. If it turns yellow, the letter is in the word, but in a different position. If it turns green, the letter and position are correct. (There is also a color-blind mode with higher contrast colors.)
On the next line, using the knowledge learned from the previous guess, repeat the process for the next guess. You have six attempts and can only use real words (so don’t fill the box with EEEEE to see if there is an E).
When you win (or lose), it’s time to share your results on social media, because if you do something and no one sees it, do you have it? real Do it? This is why all these boxes are clogging Twitter.
It is actually a fairly thoughtful sharing system, it will not reveal the puzzles (like I just did), and it will also show you how many times you have tried to get the answer, but at the same time you see everyone’s colorful letterless boxes Being posted all the time, for example, is not as interesting as seeing the wonderful gifs of Rockets League goals. These are just some boxes, if you don’t play Wordle (or even if you play), it can be a bit annoying. Another thing to remember is that all these little boxes are clearly a nightmare for screen readers:
Want to know how accessible these Wordle tweets are? This is a quick demo I did with iOS VoiceOver and a quote from @MrBrokenEyes “They are horrible and pointless. Read it on my iPhone for more than a minute, and the speed is 65.” https://t.co /GAqlGQpUAT pic.twitter.com/HHFIH5rni6January 4, 2022
Want to play Wordle? You might be, this is a nice little game. Here are some quick Wordle tips:
Try to start with words that use multiple different vowels and common consonants. IncreaseFor example, it is a good starting word because it has three vowels and two very common letters. On the other hand, ATAXY uses A twice and has an X and Y. If you eliminate them, it may not help you make your next guess.
remember A letter may appear more than once In the solution. If you enter TAINT and A turns yellow or green, it does not mean that the answer contains only one A. It may have more. For example, the answer may be the Mafia.
After your first guess, you might want to use a letter that you know is not in the word because it is grayed out. But don’t!Take your time to think of a word Does not contain any excluded letters. You want every guess to provide as much information as possible.
A free game does not attract so many people’s attention every day, especially a game that has no ads, no unlocks, and no push notifications to remind you to play (actually I usually forget to play until I see others Posted on Twitter). Wardle, Speak to the BBC, Said he plans to maintain this state. I have no doubt that we will start to see some Wordle clones appearing in the app store, but now Wordle is only about words.
