The Origins of 'Wordle'

The online game was originally created by software engineer Josh Wardle, for his partner Palak Shah, so that they could play it together. It was launched in the height of the Covid-19 pandemic and quickly gained popularity.

He made the game public in October 2021, and it started out with just 90 active players, which quickly grew into over 45 million users.

It was then later bought in January 2022 by the New York Times Company for a reported seven-figure sum.

"One tip that I have is to try, where possible, to cover as many vowels as possible in your first two words, as it really helps to narrow down the options and puts you in a good position to get a 3/6.
