The Wordle Board Game

Wordle’s boxed game is ready to debut in the United States by bringing the dynamics of one of the most popular online trends in 2022 into a 1.0 dimension for an analog-type challenge with friends. Produced by Hasbro in collaboration with the New York Times, the Wordle board game is aimed at two to four players with various game modes always chasing the same goal as the original: finding the mystery word with the right sequence of letters in the right place.

It has been a truly phenomenal year for Wordle, which was created by Josh Wardle in 2021 as a free puzzle pastime accessible from a browser using the same dynamics as other well-known games such as Mastermind, Jotto or Lingo or by identifying a mysterious word in six. attempts with the help of colors to understand which letters were each time absent (gray), in the wrong place (yellow) or right (green). After a few weeks of running in the game literally exploded thanks to word of mouth on Twitter and was purchased for an unspecified millionaire by the New York Times, which decided to keep access free. The next step is this analog version to play with friends.

The Wordle board game requires one of the participants in turn to take the role of host, that is, thinking of a five-letter word. The challengers hide their scoreboard (completely identical to that of the digital version) through a small booth and write a first word, after which the host checks and places yellow or green squares on any letters in the wrong or right place and off we go. with the second round: the one who guesses correctly with fewer attempts wins. You can also have fun with two other game modes or against the clock or in a group. For now, the Wordle boxed game will be released only in the US in October at a price of around 20 euros, but it is possible that Hasbro will bring it to us too soon.

Wordle Conquers Everyone


Anyone who knows Wordle raise your hand! And you are a lot with your hands up because lately it is the game on the knowledge of the words of the English language that is very popular, on Twitter and beyond.

Instead, let’s immediately explain to those who have never heard of it that it is a very simple online pastime, which can be found at this link. It involves guessing an existing five-letter English word by trying to write one. If a letter is present and in the right place of the combination, it will turn green. If it is present, but in the wrong place, it is yellow. If, on the other hand, that letter does not exist, it is dark gray.

A sort of “Mastermind” (the Hasbro game that has accompanied, and still accompanies, generations of fans), but with the letters instead of the colored pegs. Here we need to have further attention: we do not play with British English. A few days ago, for example, many complained (jokingly) that the word to guess was FAVOR (favor) and not FAVOR. And since the hidden term must exist, not all letter combinations are allowed; it drops from almost 12 million to a few thousand, which in any case are not few.

Every day there is a different proposal and every day there are only six attempts. Few or many? Generally they are sufficient if you know English well or if (like the writer) you rely on the intuition and plausible sound of British or American terms. However, it must be said that to impress friends and friends it is also important to guess the word in the least number of tests and therefore a quantitative approach could help.

To analyze the phenomenon from a numerical point of view, we started with a lexicon of 4,710 five-letter words. There will probably be some that we have not found, but there seemed to be a sufficient number for analysis. In practice, assuming this set of headwords is correct, you have a 0.02% chance of guessing on the first try. Not many, then.

Well, our words have given life to a list of 23,550 letters: among these, more than 10% are E’s, which is the most used in terms that contain five.

Crosswords: test yourself with the Marlù Webboh Fest edition and solve the game!

The Webboh crosswords are back by popular demand, the only ones entirely dedicated to the world of the web and its protagonists. This time the definitions of the scheme are totally linked to the highly anticipated Milanese stage of the Marlù Webboh Fest, the free event to be held on Sunday 5 December 2021 at 4.00 pm at the Teatro Nuovo in Milan (if you can’t be reminded that you can follow it live on our Instagram channel!). If you think you know everything about the singers and presenters of the event, put yourself to the test and complete the scheme!

How to play? If you have already dealt with the two previous schemes you already know what to do. If, on the other hand, it is the first time you try the game, we will explain the rules immediately: read the definition and fill in the boxes starting from the one with the number of the corresponding definition. Each box contains only one letter. If the word entered is correct, the word will turn green, while if it is incorrect it will be red. When you don’t know how to answer, help yourself with the letters that you managed to obtain thanks to the compilation of the other definitions.

Warning: each definition consists of a single word and relates to characters and facts that we told you this summer.

If you can complete the pattern correctly, Miss Webboh will appear and congratulate you. If not, you can ask us for help on Instagram. Speaking of Instagram: Once the game is over, if you like, tag us or share a screenshot with the compliments of Miss Webboh.
