This word-seeking game is called Wordle and it has become a favorite not only in schools, but around the world. More than two million people have been playing. 

The game originally originated back in Oct. 2021. It was created by a man named Josh Wardle who wanted a simple game to pass time. It quickly became well liked and on Feb. 10th, it switched over to the New York Times. It is said that the game was sold for around one million dollars. This switch has caused some commotion causing people to say that Wordle has become way more challenging.

As far as how the game actually operates, Wordle is a free online game that allows people to tap into their creative mind skills. The game refreshes every 24 hours and allows for the opportunity to play again. You have a total of six attempts to guess five letter words. The game is played by selecting letters on your keyboard and submitting words to see what is correct and what is wrong. You win by guessing the exact word within the six tries.
