Three new Wordle-style games asking you to guess films and songs
Bored in your lunchtime? See if you can guess films from condensed five-second clips or from up to 6 still photographs, or songs from clips lasting for as little as one second.

Sound and vision games

Following the success of Wordle, everyone's jumping on the bandwagon.  Here are 3 games to while away a lunch break.

These games are to do with movies and films: other Wordle variants include  Dordle, Quordle, Octordle, Sedecordle, Squareword, Crosswordle, Absurdle, Obscurdle, Nerdle, Globle, Worldle, Semantle, Redactle and Lewdle!

Guessing a movie condensed into one second

Know your movies?  Moviedle challenges you to name a film from a one-second clip of scenes:


There's a 3-2-1 countdown, then the film begins ... and immediately ends!

You can extend the viewing length by a second at a time up to a maximum of 6 seconds.

My learning point from this is that it helps if you've seen the film when you're trying to guess it!

Guessing a movie from up to 6 scenes

Framed gives you up to 6 stills from a movie:

Guessing a film

Here I've had to ask for 5 stills, but even I can now see that this is from Parasite.  Except I couldn't, and had to ask for (and waste) a 6th and final guess.

Guessing a song from a clip, adding a second at a time

Heardle plays you a one-second clip of a song, and asks you to guess it.  You can extend the song length by (from memory) up to 6 seconds:

Heardle song

I can't believe I didn't recognise this iconic AC/DC song ...

As with all the websites on this page, the idea is that each day you get one (and only one) new test.
