What is the Deal with Wordle and Why is There So Much Hype?

Josh Wardle is responsible for this addicting word puzzle, and yes, he gave it a name based on his last name. Indeed, a clever wordplay, with very similar pronunciation. He is a known software engineer who is also responsible for Reddit’s /r/place, where millions of people work together (or against each other in some cases) to draw pixel art on a large scale.

Wordle is hosted on The New York Times website and it quickly became a viral hit, becoming a daily routine for many people worldwide.

Anyway, today’s word is KHAKI. Stay tuned to Prima Games tomorrow as well, we’ll make sure to provide more help and solutions.
