Recently, Wordle has become less popular than its launch; people are playing way more fun alternatives, such as Abdsurdle, Quordle, Nerdle, and so on. One game that competes with Wordle right now is the game known as ‘Sedecordle.’
In 2021, an online game that goes by the name ‘Wordle’ took over the popularity of word guessing games by introducing a daily challenge where one has to guess a meaningful 5-letter word by inserting letters. The player has 6 tries to guess the word right; if they fail to do so, then they will have to try to guess a different word the next day as they have failed the challenge for that particular day.
