Daily word games
WORDLE – Most people would say Wordle is one of the best daily word games. It was developed by a Welsh software engineer. It is a daily word game. You have to guess what the hidden word is and you do this by solving the puzzle by going through a process of elimination clues.
On the screen you will be met by a 5-wide by 6-long grid of empty, white boxes. Each box can hold a letter which makes up a word. So start by putting a random 5 letter word with different vowels and consonants and enter. Once you do this, you hope some of your letters may change. If they turn yellow, it means the hidden word has this letter but just not in the position you used it. If the letter turns green you have found one of the word’s letters and it is in the right position.
You get 6 opportunities to guess the word. There is a new word every single day. Take a look at Wordle and have a go!
QUORDLE – if you can get the hang of Wordle, then why not attempt the tougher version call Quordle. Instead of trying to find one 5 letter word, you work to find 4 words using the same technique as you use in Wordle. It’s a quadruple version of Wordle. Quordle is very challenging. Definitely the next level after Wordle!
WAFFLE – is a game where players must rearrange letters to find six five letter words. The game is presented in a grid that looks a little like a waffle. You have 15 turns to try and complete it. This is a daily word game. Quite a challenge, so grab a coffee/tea, get comfy and have a go!
CONNECTIONS – the object of this game is to group words that share a common thread. For example, you could group words like Thames, Mississippi, Nile and Danube – under the thread of RIVERS. As the connection being they are all rivers. But that is an easy example so why not have a look at Connections and try it out.
BLOSSOM – is a daily word game. It combines elements of a word search with a crossword puzzle. You need to create words using the pre-selected letters in the petals. Each word must use the letter in the middle of the flower. If you include the letter in the petal that is highlighted you will gain more points. Each of the letters will make one whole word so if you guess that you will gain even more points. BLOSSOM is challenging and addictive, it is a good game to improve your vocabulary skills.
