For the uninitiated, in the game developed by Brooklyn-based software engineer Josh Wardle, users must strategically guess a five-lettered word in six attempts. The game has one new word every day and the same word is given to all users across the world.
With no app and just a simple link to a website, gamers take six turns to fill out the boxes with any random five-letter word. As one enters the words, the game tells the player if the alphabet is present in the final word and about its position. One can play the online word game here.
