In case you’ve been living under a rock, Wordle was originally created by former Reddit engineer Josh Wardle and went super-viral in late 2021, becoming a daily habit for players around the globe. The game was bought by the New York Times earlier this year, and is now run by the paper’s puzzles and games team.

It may seem some days like Wordle is getting harder — we can assure you it isn’t. However, you can always switch Wordle to Hard Mode. (Yeah, you’ve been playing on easy.)

The Wordle archive: Dig in

If you aren’t satisfied with only solving one Wordle per day, the whole archive of past Wordle puzzles is also available to play. Just make sure you look up from your phone every few hours.

Why are there two different Wordle answers some days?

Though it is generally accepted that there is just one Wordle solution to rule them all on a single day, occasionally two different correct answers will share the spotlight. This is due to changes the New York Times made after acquiring the puzzle game.

Just last week, a word was swapped out because it was unexpectedly topical. Make sure you refresh your browser before you play each day to make sure you’re getting the latest version of the game.
