For the uninformed, Wordle is a word game. Basically, you have to guess a five-letter word with no clues. It starts with you picking a random word. If a square is yellow, it means that you have the right letter but in the wrong place. If the square is green, you have the right letter in the right place. If the square remains grey, it means the letter is not correct.
I held out as long as I could, but I finally gave in to the madness. I’m addicted to Wordle, despite how it makes me feel dumb sometimes when I literally can’t think of any words. But it’s always worth it to guess the right word and watch all five squares turn green.
I suppose there’s an element of discipline in this game. I feel like I’m training my brain when I play Wordle. It’s all about figuring out a pattern, like using words that have lots of vowels and common consonants.
The trick is that you can only play once a day. Oh, and there’s not an app for it. The real Wordle game is a web-based game under the New York Times website. So, if you choose, you can embrace the madness and begin playing. Enter at your own risk.
