|More alternatives to Wordle!|
|Last month we introduced you to Wordle written in Python, Power BI and Excel; here are a clutch of other alternatives to this popular word game.|
In Semantle each guess is awarded a score of 0 to 100 according to how close your guess is to the final word. The trouble is that "close" doesn't mean close in any sense of the word you'll recognise it:
After 50 guesses it looks like I'm making progress, but I'm probably not.
OK, now I'm making progress:
Quite why theater is semantically closer to the answer than teach I don't know!
After nearly 100 goes, I gave up:
I guess the answer was fair ...
In Nerdle, each guess is a mathematically true statement:
The 2 is in the right position, and the final formula definitely contains a 4, a 5 and an = sign.
If you want to guess swear words, Sweardle is for you:
The user interface isn't as glossy (but then neither are the words).
In Worldle you have to guess the country from the outline:
I know Germany is nowhere near China, honest!
If you want a really niche version of Wordle, Taylordle provides it:
I have no idea what SNAKE has to do with Taylor Swift ... but then again I'm not a fan.
Out of all the games on this page, Quordle is probably my favourite. You have to guess 4 words simultaneously:
Hmm ... I just about know the words, but haven't enough guesses left to prove it.
As the game says, better luck next time:
Who has time to play all these games?
Surely no one has gone to the same lengths as Chris Greening, who tweaked a 3D printer to play Wordle:
Watch this video to find out how you too can get a robot to play Wordle for you.
Here's hoping that this is the last Wordle blog I'll ever write! Unless someone manages to integrate Wordle with the Times crossword ...
