Where did Wordle come from?
Though Wordle was originally created by engineer Josh Wardle as a gift for his partner, thousands of players across the world have now adopted the word guessing game as a daily ritual. It even became so popular that it was purchased by the New York Times, while TikTok creators have taken to livestreaming themselves playing.
Several fan made clones and alternate iterations of Wordle have also popped up, including battle royale Squabble, music identification game Heardle, and variations such as Dordle and Quordle that have you trying to guess multiple words at once.
Not the day you’re after? Here’s the Wordle answer for January 18.
What’s the best Wordle starting word?
Unlike a maths equation, there is no single correct answer to what the best Wordle starting word is. However, there are more strategic options, and we have plenty of ideas that can help you choose. For example, try picking a word that includes at least two different vowels, as well as some common consonants such as S, T, R, or N.
What happened to the Wordle archive?
The entire archive of past Wordles used to be available for you to dive into whenever you were after some word puzzle action. Unfortunately it has since been taken down, which was done at the request of the New York Times according to the website’s creator.
Is Wordle getting harder?
Despite random speculation you may see on Twitter, Wordle isn’t getting harder. Though if you are looking for more of a challenge, the game does have a Hard Mode which you can turn on.
Why are there two different Wordle answers some days?
Though Wordle usually just has one correct solution per day, occasionally two different answers may be found acceptable. This is because the New York Times made changes to Wordle after acquiring it, swapping out some answers for new ones.
The Times has since added its own updated word list, so this should happen even less frequently than before. To avoid any confusion, it’s a good idea to refresh your browser before getting stuck into a new puzzle.
