# Wordle Today #606 Answer, Hints and Tips for Wednesday, February 15 Game

Well over a year since Wordle was first released to the public, in October 2021, the game shows few signs of losing its extraordinary popularity.

Wordle was invented during coronavirus lockdown by Josh Wardle, a New York based software engineer originally from Wales in the U.K.

Speaking to Newsweek in January 2022, he said: "When I designed the game, it was for me and my partner to enjoy, so I made sure that all of the entries were randomized. In other words, I don't actually know what tomorrow's word is going to be, which means that I can take part like everybody else."

Later that same month, Wordle was purchased by The New York Times for an unspecified seven-figure fee, though it remains free to play.

Wordle's popularity has helped spawn a number of other online puzzles, such as Worldle for geography enthusiasts and even Taylordle for fans of musical sensation Taylor Swift.

Nerdle applies the Wordle formula to math, with the player tasked to figure out a new number each day, in six attempts or less, with the numbers then lighting up to indicate how accurate you were.

To help you solve today's Wordle, Newsweek has provided some tips. The answer to today's puzzle will be revealed at the end of this article, so scroll down with caution if you want to work it out for yourself.
