How You Can Play Wordle Like a Pro

Looking to go back and play Wordles you missed? Wordle Archive has you covered, giving you access to all 243 entries in the viral word game's back-catalog.

The Wordle Archive is an open-source tool "made with love" by computational biologist and designer Devang Thakkar, who launched the site in early January. 

Wordle is a daily word game you can find online here. It's fun, simple and, like a crossword, can only be played once a day. 

Wordle gives players six chances to guess a randomly selected five-letter word. As shown above, if you have the right letter in the right spot, it shows up green.

A correct letter in the wrong spot shows up yellow. A letter that isn't in the word in any spot shows up gray. 

There's only one puzzle per day: This creates a certain level of stakes. You only get one shot at the Wordle. If you mess up, you have to wait until tomorrow to get a brand new puzzle. 

Everyone is playing the exact same puzzle: This is crucial, as it makes it easier to ping your buddy and chat about the day's puzzle. "Today's was tough!" "How did you get on?" "Did you get it?" This takes us to the next point...

It's easy to share your results: Once you've successfully or unsuccessfully done the puzzle for the day, you're invited to share your Wordle journey for the day. If you tweet the image,
