If you’re not familiar with Wordle, where have you been? It’s the daily word game that quickly became a global sensation. The object of Wordle is to guess a five-letter word within six attempts. After each attempt, it tells you which letters are not in the word, which are in the wrong position, and which are in the correct position.
One of the great things about Wordle is that you can only play it once per day. At the stroke of midnight, a new word becomes available. This makes it the perfect game to play on your coffee break.
But what if you want more and you want a Wordle fix? we’ve got you covered. Here are the best Wordle alternatives you can play for free.
1. Hello World
If you want the pure Wordle experience without that daily limit, then Hello Wordle is the game for you. It lets you solve an unlimited number of Wordles, so you can keep at it until it fries your brain.
Hello Wordle also lets you change the number of letters from four to 11, which essentially increases the difficulty; A challenge only true words deserve.
Laterle is a silly parody of Wordle. In Wordle, it can be difficult to think of different six-letter words that complete the clues you’ve found so far. Laterle threw all that out the window. Here, you only need to guess the letter of the day.
You have a 1 in 26 chance of getting the answer right on your first turn. Good luck to you!
3. Seven Words
Love Wordle, but tired of his relaxed attitude? Give Seven Wordles a try, which asks you to solve seven Wordles in a row while a prominent timer keeps track of how long you’re taking.
Like the way people speedrun video games on Twitch, maybe we’ll soon see a World Championship.
The Absurdle presents itself as “an Absurd version” of the Wordle. Although the mechanics of the two games are similar, and use similar word lists, Absurdall does not have a definite end word. Instead, it is designed to extend the game for as long as possible.
It does this by shrinking the word list as much as possible after each of your turns, keeping all possible words in line with your guess. Because of this, there is no standard six-attempt limit.
If you’re constantly being asked to rinse your mouth, give Swirdle a try. You must locate the four-letter swear word within six guesses.
As a hint, some of them are not traditional swear words, but just cheeky or silly—”fart”, for example.
If Swerdle hasn’t provided enough vulgarity for your liking, you’ll be glad to know that you can guess profanity in Swerdle as well.
If you’re struggling you can turn on “dependent mode,” which lets you input non-obscene words on the way to the last hard word, though you’ll incur a penalty on your score.
Strictly speaking, Squirdle isn’t a game like Wordle, but it does offer a similar design. In it, you must uncover Pokémon in five turns, changing your answer based on generation, type, height, and weight.
If you haven’t kept up with Pokémon over the years, you can just switch to the first-generation version to play with classics like Pikachu and Charmander.
Byrdle is an incredibly niche version of Wordle, but that’s what makes it so great. It looks and plays just like traditional Wordle, except the word you have to guess is related to choral music.
Yes, most of us would probably need to research what words are involved, but it’s fun.
Querdal defines itself as “the Yesification of Querdal”. Essentially, all words have some meaning for the LGBT community.
Words vary between four and eight syllables, and sometimes two words may be put together. Why? According to the instructions of the site, the strangeness cannot be contained!
Wordle is about guessing words, while Cloudle is about guessing the five-day weather forecast for a city. While you may encounter the city again and again after playing for a long time, the weather will always be different.
Will it be sunny, rainy and then windy? Or maybe it’s going to be snowy all week? Test your meteorological knowledge with Cloudle.
Although its name sounds similar to the original, this Wordle knockoff shows you a random country or region and you must figure out what it is. This is the ideal game for geography enthusiasts.
After each turn, Worldall gives you the distance, direction, and how close your guess is to true north.
If the force is with you, you will succeed in Swordle because it is about Swordle Clone Star Wars. Think planets, droids, Jedi, and more.
You’ll need to use a lot more than just letters—don’t be afraid to leave out some numbers and hyphens.
