Wordle was invented by a developer from Brooklyn for his sweetheart. The creator's last name is Wardle, so the name of the game is a kind of pun.
At first, the couple played Wordle together, then the developer showed the game to his relatives, and then decided to publish it on the Internet for everyone who was interested. On the day of launch, 90 people played the game, and already some two months later - as many as 300 thousand.
Wardle himself believes that the secret of the game's popularity lies in its simplicity - there is no need to register on the site, there are no ads, just a fun pastime.
A distinctive feature of the original game is that it has a limit - only one game per day. An interesting decision, but not everyone liked it. The game is so addictive that you want to play more and more. And we have solved this problem - now it is infinitely replayable, so you can play an unlimited number of games and guess as many words as you want.
