‘Wordle’ Will Soon Be Available As A Physical Game

‘Wordle’ Will Soon Be Available As A Physical Game

Wordle: The Party Game will launch this October.

Back when Wordle broke onto the scene, no one had a clue what was going on. Early bird fans plagued our Twitter timelines with yellow, green and grey squares as the rest of us scrolled on in bewilderment.

If you’re unaware, and I find it hard to believe that anyone is at this point, Wordle is a viral daily puzzle game where you have to work out a five-letter word within six guesses. Grey letters are not included in the word. Yellow letters are, but they’re in the wrong place. Green letters are positioned correctly. It’s hugely addicting and I personally still play Wordle to this day. Whilst the online version serves me just fine, there’s a physical version of Wordle on the way for those of you who just want more.

Check out the moment an epic LEGO build came to a disastrous end.

A while back, Wordle creator Josh Wardle sold the game to The New York Times and now, The New York Times have teamed up with Hasbro to create a physical version of the game, Wordle: The Party Game. Hasbro spoke to CNN about the project, noting that it had been one of their fastest turnaround times ever, from development to release.

Wordle: The Party Game will launch this October for $20. A year on from the great Wordle craze of 2021, you can repeat it all over again but this time with your friends in real life.

As with the online version, you’ll have six guesses to work out a five-letter word. Players will take it in turn to host, covering your fellow players' guesses with yellow and green tiles. Wordle: The Party Game will also have timed and fast variations. If you’re worried about cheating foes, don’t worry. The game also includes “protective partitions.” This is seriously competitive stuff.
