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:
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:
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.
