Wordle’s final puzzle of the month might prove tricky for some players, but luckily Newsweek is here to help those who might need help pointing them in the right direction.
Each day, Wordle players must guess a five-letter word and use a color-coded system to show how close they are to getting the correct answer.
In the game, green tiles indicate that the letter is correct and in the right place, a yellow tile indicates to the player that the letter is correct but in the wrong place while a gray tile means that the letter is not in the game at all. the answer.
The simple formula has taken Wordle from an intimate online experience for 90 users to a worldwide success registering millions of daily players.

Josh Wardle created the game during the COVID pandemic as something for him and his partner to play.
The New York Times stepped in earlier this year and bought Wordle for an undisclosed seven-figure sum.
Wardle said he never intended to make money with Wordle and it was something he wanted his partner to appreciate.
Wardle said: “The interesting thing is people ask me about the monetization stuff all the time. Like, ‘You could put ads on it, you could make bounty.’
“And I don’t know, maybe I’m an idiot.
“None of that really appeals to me. I think because I started with the intention of not doing it, it was easy to say no. If I had tried to make a viral game, I think it would be very different.”
