It works like this: When you come to visit the wordle website, you are greeted by a 5-wide by 6-long grid of empty, white boxes. Each box can contain one letter, so you guess the answer by typing a five letter word and pressing ‘Enter’.
There are no clues beforehand, so any five letter word is a first guess. That’s where the game from wordle really begins. When you send a guess, the color of the letterbox changes.
When it turns green, that letter is in the daily word and you’ve put it in the right place.
If it turns yellow, the letter is in the word but you have it in the wrong place.
If the box turns gray, it means that the letter does not appear in the word at all.
