What is Wordle 207x/6
Wordle is a game that, a priori, may seem simple but it is not so simple. The goal is to guess a five-letter word (in English). The difficulty lies in the fact that no clues are given, but simply make the first attempt and the program tells you with a gray square if the letter is not in the word, yellow if it is but not in that position and green if the letter is correct.
You have six attempts to guess the word and once you have guessed it, you cannot make another different word until the next day.
What is Wordle? How to play
People use different strategies to play Wordle. The two most common are starting a word with a lot of vowels or starting a word with more commonly used consonants. Some people will start each puzzle with the same word. People reportedly use a popular word to start a wordle because it has three vowels and two consonants that can be good for quickly confirming or canceling.
One thing to remember is that the same letter can appear twice in the Wordle Word of the Day. For example, the word might be press. As far as winning is concerned, all it takes is knowing how well you performed and being able to share the result with your social media followers.
