What is Wordle? 

Wordle is mostly a puzzle game that stimulates your brain to stay healthy. The game gives you 6 attempts to guess a 5-letter word. After each attempt, it prompts whether your guess contained any correct letters. If Wordle turns green if the letters are in the right position. And, it turns yellow if they are in the wrong position. If they are grey, then they are not in the answer word at all.

Studies have revealed that headscratchers like Wordle could help your brain stay healthy as you age. Scientists in the UK showed that adults over 50 who played this game had overall brain function 10 years younger than their age, and a short-term memory of 8 year younger. Number games like Sudoko also have a positive impact.  

Launched in 2021, Wordle now has over 2.5 million daily players. So, have you tried Wordle yet!
