Wordle #340 Answer: Today's Word of the Day Tips To Solve May 25 Puzzle

Wordle has become something of a daily ritual for many thousands of puzzle enthusiasts across the world.

The game is liked by all sort of people, including celebrities like U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris, TV personality Jimmy Fallon and author Richard Osman.

The rules of the popular puzzle game are simple—players follow a color-coded system that they use to work out the five-letter word. They have six attempts to get to the answer.

After submitting a word guess, green tiles show the player has chosen the correct letter and that it is in the right place, a yellow tile means the letter is right but in the wrong place while a gray tile indicates that the letter is not in the word.

People have different methods of finding the word. Some may just go for the first five letter word that pops into their head, while others are more strategic, thinking of specific words with lots of vowels in, which are likely to be in the Wordle answer.

Wordle Origins

The game was created by a Welsh software engineer living in New York City for his partner, who enjoyed puzzles, during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Josh Wardle created the guessing game for just the two of them, with a play on his surname. It quickly became an obsession in his family's WhatsApp group, so he introduced it to friends and more relatives.

Around 90 people played the game on November 1 2021 but only two months later more than 300,000 played, according to the New York Times, which now owns the puzzle game. Today, more than a million people are believed to play.
