Wordle Spoiler Alert!!

Just like crossword, spelling Bee, Wordle has come up as new pandemic games and it’s taking the internet by storm. You will see people posting their wordle scores on social media platforms. As per wiki, it is a web-based word game developed by Welsh-born software engineer Josh Wardle. Players have six attempts to guess a five-letter word; feedback is given for each guess, in the form of colored tiles, indicating when letters match or occupy the correct position. Every day you get a new word and yes, you can keep on guessing. Give it a try here → https://www.powerlanguage.co.uk/wordle/. The New York Times announced it had paid “in seven figures” to acquire the game.
