I played one go at new craze on web, this morning. It's called Wordle and could become addictive so I had one go and got it right.  One's score is kept on net if you return to it.

I heard something about this on radio news. I'm wondering how they make any money from it.

It's a mystery K but the NYT wouldn't've paid a fortune for it if it wasn't worth monetising..

It's not much different from a word game app. I play several of those from time to time. Perhaps they are hoping it will bring visitors.

I've just had a go too and got it right - but on the last go  !   I'll get the hang of it.....eventually.

I got it in 4.
Got lucky with letters 3 and 4 being green on second guess. That narrowed things down a lot.

A guy set it up for his girlfriend .. He did it to amuse here.. I think it was 2019.. It became popular because it was only one game a day.. and free..
He sold it for at least a million.. Good for him..
It's a bit like the TV game Lingo..
Don't ask me.. I know nuffink..

Nerdle is a number version of it.  Paul and I compete with Wordle, Nerdle and Spider Solitaire.  Covid has a lot to answer for!

As there seems to be a bit of interest in word games I've added one to the interactive games section.

It's a variant of Hangman. The main variation being there is no hangman  :smiley:
