Three Wordle Alternatives You Must Try

One of the best things about Wordle is the fact that it only gives you one puzzle per day to maintain its social aspect, where everyone can compete with each other. The fact that the game only features one puzzle per day also means that those who get a word before you don’t get a head start and everyone else starts the same one every 24 hours.

However, this also happens to be one of the worst aspects of the game, as more often than not, you will be able to solve the word of the day within minutes. And then you have to wait a whole day for the next word.

So here are some Wordle-like alternative games, spotted first by The edge, which you can play either for practice or just to kill more time. Check out our list below.

Hello Wordl – Wordle with additional benefits

Hello Wordle is like Wordle, except you don’t have to wait an entire day for a new word after guessing the last one. You can play with a new word immediately. But it’s not that. Hello Wordl also lets you change the number of letters to guess. So you could also guess 6 letter words or 10 letter words. Note that the number of chances, however, is still capped at six, so increasing the number of letters will also become exponentially more difficult.

Absurdle – A much harder word

The absurd is as difficult as it seems. The game changes the rules as you get more guesses and changes the word entirely based on the correct letters you guessed. However, in compensation, you will have an infinite number of chances to solve the puzzle.

For example, if the word to guess is TIGER and you guess CRATE instead, Absurdle will write down the correct letters, the T, R and E, and change the word from TIGER to something like STERN where the correct letter positions are now mixed. Yes, you will need more time to solve this version of the game.

Sweardle – Wordle, but with swear words

Sweardle is the version of Wordle your parents would immediately disapprove of. You have six chances to guess the four-letter word of the day, except these won’t be regular words. Instead, you will guess swear words. It’s time to put the swearing efforts to good use.
