The Wordle Board Game Will Release In October (Yes, You Read That Right)

Unboxed version of the Wordle board game.

In very 2022 news, The New York Times has teamed up with Hasbro to release a Wordle board game.

Wordle: The Party Game will let 2 to 4 players compete in a real-life version of the daily word guessing game — with a few improvements. First, you can play with up to four people to determine once and for all who’s the better wordsmith. Second, instead of being at the mercy of the website, you can create your own words for the other players to guess.

Each round, one player is designated as the Wordle Host. They write down a secret five-letter word on a dry-erase board; everyone else has to guess what the word is, writing their attempts on separate dry-erase boards. The host then reveals which letters are correct and in the right spot, correct but in the wrong spot or incorrect, and places transparent green and yellow tiles over the letters.

Each incorrect attempt adds another point to the player’s score, and the player with the fewest points at the end of the round wins.

You can also mix up the gameplay with a fast mode, beat the clock mode or teams mode.
