Wordle has taken the world by storm, and if you haven’t given in to the daily game, we can guarantee you’ve seen the elusive squares all over social media.
The game uses the same rules as Scrabble, where only real words are allowed in both the guesses and the outcome.
If you get a letter in the right place and form the correct word, the square turns green.
But if the guessed letter is in the word but not in the right place, the square turns yellow.
Wrong letters turn gray to facilitate the elimination process for the six trials.

Wordle New York Times
The game was created by software engineer Josh Wardle, who sold the popular word game to The New York Times after it became a global sensation.
In a statement on Twitter, he wrote: “Since launching Wordle, I have been impressed with the response from everyone who has played.
“The game has become bigger than I ever imagined (which I guess isn’t much of an achievement considering I made the game for an audience of just one).
“It was amazing to see the game bring so much joy to so many people and I’m so grateful for the personal stories some of you have shared with me – from Wordle uniting estranged family members, to causing friendly rivalries, supporting medical recoveries.
“On the other hand, I would be lying if I said it wasn’t overwhelming.”
