If you recently heard about the 5 letter words game, then you may wonder how to play this Wordle game.

It’s a very easy game that requires you to only understand its rules.

So every game has its rules, and once you understand them, you will be ready to go.

You have to understand the colors of the puzzles to be able to play correctly.

Today I will teach you how to play the Wordle 5-letter words game in 4 simple steps.

What Is Wordle Game

Wordle is a daily online word puzzle game that is played only once every 24 hours and based on 5-letter words that you have to enter line by line in order to guess the word of the day.

The game resets at 00:00 GMT every day.

It has been developed and created by Josh Wardle, a software engineer.

You can guess the word of the day on the 1st line, or attempt to try until you reach the 6th line.

So you have six chances to guess the word of the day.

If you don’t, you’ll lose the game and have to wait for the next day.

However, when you win the game you will receive a streak that will continue to roll over until you lose the game again.

After winning the game, you can share it on Facebook or Twitter as colored tiles.

This means you won’t show the results to your friends or followers.

How To Play Wordle

To play Wordle, visit the website nytimes.com/games/wordle/ using any of your PC or Mobile phones, then start with the first line by entering a 5 letter random word.

Then take a look at the colors of each letter of the word you’ve entered.

When you see the colors, you will probably get a green, yellow, or grey color.

After checking the colors, you might then start thinking about what to write next.

Therefore, you will be able to narrow the results in a way that becomes easier for you to guess the Wordle word of today.

So you just need to understand the colors to play the Wordle game easily.

If you had the chance, you may notice the word on the 1st try, which is the 1st line.

1.Type a 5 letter Random Word

Enter random 5 letter words to play the Wordle game

When you visit the Wordle website, start to play by adding any random words.

So we will help you to understand how it works, by playing it with you.

Therefore, you can get inspired by our example to understand how it works.

So for example we will start by entering the word “FUNKY”.

You can start by tapping or clicking on each word on the keyboard at the bottom of the page.

Then hit the “Enter” button when you are ready to get the results.

2.Look at the colors

Check the color to narrow the results and find the word of the day

Now that you’ve added the “FUNKY” word, look at the colors that you’ve got.

In our case, we got the green color on the “K” letter.

This means that “K” is a correct letter and has to stay in its place.

Therefore, you have to start thinking about a word that contains 5 letters and “K” is the 4th letter on that word.

However, you may get a grey color in the first line after writing your randomized word.

This means that the word you entered doesn’t have any letter related to the Wordle word of the day.

As a sequence, you have to try your chance again in the second line until you get a green or yellow color.

3.Continue typing on the lines

Continue to play the Wordle game to guess the word of the day

Going to the next line, you will continue to play the Wordle game by typing again a random word to check the missing letters.

So type “SWEAR” to check the results.

However, if you like, you can type a word that has a “K” on it in the 4th place like “JUNKY”.

Otherwise, you can follow us to understand better.

So when you type the word “SWEAR”, you will get a yellow color on the “E” letter.

This means that the word of the day contains an “E” letter, but it’s not in the 3rd place as it is on the word “SWEAR”.

Therefore, the “E” letter may be in 1st, 2nd, or 5th place.

4.Guess the word of the day

Guess and find the word of the day

After typing the word “FUNKY” and “SWEAR” you have to know that the word of the day might be “xxxKx”, but you still don’t know where the “E” real place is.

However, you still have only 4 chances as the first two lines are occupied with “FUNKY” and “SWEAR”.

So you can continue adding words in the next 3 lines to guess the new word.

The good thing is, you may find the word in the 3rd or 4th line, maybe.

In our case, after trying 4 words, we guessed the word of the day which is “CHOKE” in the 6th line.

The word “CHOKE”, contains a “K” letter in the 4th place (That was colored in green), and an “E” letter in the 5th place (That was colored in yellow).

What Does Yellow Mean in Wordle

The yellow color means the letter is a good letter but has to be in a different place.

This means if the yellow letter is the 4th letter in the random word that you entered.

The right place of that letter would be the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 5th place in the word of the day.

For example, when you play Wordle, and you find that “E” is a yellow letter, this means it’s a right, but it has to be in a different place in the word of the day.

What Does Grey Mean in Wordle

The meaning of grey color in the Wordle game

The Grey color in Wordle means that the word of the day doesn’t contain any letter of the word you’ve recently entered.

Therefore, you have to try your chance in the next line, until you see a Green or Yellow color.

What Does Green Mean in Wordle

The meaning of green color in the Wordle game

The Green color in Wordle means that you’ve found the right letter in the right place.

So you have to think about a word that contains the same green letter in the same place.

For example, if “K” was the green letter, it means the word you have to guess is “xxxKx”.
