When Did 'Wordle' Become So Popular?

New York-based software engineer Josh Wardle knew his partner loved word games, so he created a guessing game for them to play together.

After enjoying the problem-solving game as a pair, Wardle made it publicly available during the height of the coronavirus pandemic and the game quickly took off.

Wordle is so popular, Wardle's website for the game reached an audience of millions who often began their day with Wordle either alone or working with friends and family.

Wordle even inspired other daily puzzles, including the geographic guessing game Worldle and the number-crunching Nerdle.

In January 2022, Wardle sold the game to The New York Times for a sum in "the low seven figures," which the media company confirmed will continue to be "free to play."
