Where and how can you play the game?

Currently, Wordle is available online only. It is accessed via the webpage

All you have to do is to visit the Wordle website, where you will be greeted five-wide by a six-long grid of empty, white boxes. Each box can hold one letter, and so you guess at the answer by typing in a five-letter word and pressing Enter, Mashable reported.

There aren't any clues upfront, so any five-letter word will do as an initial guess. That's where the game of Wordle really starts. When you send a guess along, the color of each letter's box changes. If it turns green, that letter is in the daily word and you've placed it in the right spot.

If it turns yellow, the letter is in the word but you have it in the wrong position. If the box turns grey, it means the letter isn't in the word at all. Iterestingly, everyone is playing the same puzzle every day.

Also, it has been observed that Wordle uses US-English spellings instead of UK-English. This enraged a lot of UK-based Wordle players when one day, the word to guess was FAVOR.

Wordle is expected to have an official app soon. Till then keep scratching your head online to guess a five-letter word per day.
