         What’s better than a free new word game that will challenge your skills to start off 2022? A Russian version! Whether you’re a native Russian speaker or your in the process of learning the language, we encourage you to try out Russian Wordle.

Wordle is a language-based puzzle game that was created to provide players with a new challenge every day. The concept is simple: the player has a five-by-five chart where they have six chances to guess the five-letter hidden word of the day. The game then color-codes the word you guessed according to three colors: grey, yellow, and green. If the letter of the word turns grey, then this letter is not in the word at all. Yellow means the letter is in the word, but you don’t have it in the right spot. Lastly, green means you have the right letter in the right spot. The player’s keyboard will also eliminate letters that have already been used in guesses, so you may narrow down what your next guess will be. If all of your letters are green within your six chances, you have successfully completed the puzzle. However, if you don’t solve the word within six guesses, you have unfortunately lost and will have to wait for the next puzzle.

In addition to an English and Russian version of the game, there are also other languages available as well, including Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, German, French, and Swedish. Sometimes, however, the rules have to be bent for different languages. The newly released Tamil version of the game does not abide by the limit of six chances due to the alphabet and language structure.

After solving the puzzle of the day, you have the chance to share your results and statistics with your friends on social media. Be careful though, you don’t want it to be a spoiler for your friends who haven’t yet done today's puzzle!
