Wordle exploded from 90 users on November 1, 2021, to 300,000 on January 2, 2022, according to figures by Statista. That month, The New York Times purchased the game for an undisclosed low seven-figure sum, though it remains free to play.

“There’s a fun sense of accomplishment that comes with starting the day solving a New York Times game,” Key said in 2023. “It’s also a great reason to have a quick check-in with a few of my friends (and get in a little friendly competition). I’ve always been a fan of words and language and any game that can test my acumen.”

Jonathan Knight, head of New York Times Games added: “Our collaboration with Keegan brings to life this spirit of play and connections, and showcases how our games link people together through daily play.”

Solving Wordle is simple enough. Players need to work out a mystery five-letter word in six guesses or fewer and are guided by a color-coded tile system to let them know if they are on the right track.

A green tile means the letter is correct, while yellow tells you the letter appears in the word but is in the wrong spot. Finally, a gray tile shows that the letter does not appear in the word at all.

The answer appears further down this article, so scroll with caution if you want to work it out yourself.
