Wordle is a game created by Josh Wardle in 2021 that makes its players guess five-letter words before their six attempts run out. With each new attempt, more hints are given according to the words that were tried before.

Now that Wordle has reached the world, many other versions inspired by the original have been created by fans.

Some of the most popular examples are versions of Wordle that make players guess more words at once. These include Dordle and Quordle, but there are also options with more words, like Octordle, and even extremes like Sedecordle and Duotrigordle. Respectively, these versions make players try to solve two, four, eight, 16, and 32 words at the same time. In addition to the daily mode, these versions also have a mode that allows you to play multiple times a day with new random words. All these options should be enough for many players who are not satisfied with just one word a day from Wordle.

But some players prefer a different theme, and for them, there are also many options. Squirdle is for Pokémon fans, and its players have to guess who a Pokémon with specific information about each one, instead of by letters. Nerdle is a version for players who like math, requiring them to guess a real equation through the numbers and signs in their correct positions.

Heardle was a very popular version that had its players guess songs based on just one snippet, which got longer with each failed attempt. But its success was such that it caught the attention of Spotify, and has since been temporarily offline.
