Well, maybe, but by the fourth or fifth go, players can be left scanning their memories for every letter combination and five letter word that they know.

The chances of getting the right answer on a first attempt are only 0.5 percent according to onlineslots.com, but the answer gradually reveals itself with every attempt, or at least it should do.

This daily puzzle fix was the brainchild of software engineer Josh Wardle, who started working on his labor of love with his partner Palak Shah in 2013. He completed the project during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The game was released in late 2021 punning on his surname and it quickly became part of people's daily life around the world. In a few short months it went from being played by a few dozen people, to tens of millions and its global reach was assured when it was bought by The New York Times for an undisclosed sum.

Wordle has also inspired a number of other daily puzzles, such as the globe-trotting game Worldle and the math-based Nerdle.
