It’s been over a year since New York software engineer Josh Wardle first came out word to the public, in October 2021, but the game shows little sign of losing its viral appeal.

The rules of word are very simple, which means that the game can be played by almost anyone, regardless of their previous word puzzle experience.

Each day, the player must come up with a new five-letter word, in a maximum of six attempts. After each guess, the letters light up to show how close they were to the answer. When a letter turns green, it is in both the word and the position it is placed in. Yellow means the letter is included but not where you placed it, while gray means it’s not included at all.
