How do I play Wordle 2?

The formula of Wordle 2 will be very familiar to those who have ever tried out Wordle - with a twist.

Instead of trying to guess a random five-letter word, instead, there are six letters in play. However, you still only have six guesses, which significantly ramps up the difficulty. Equally, there's a new Wordle 2 puzzle every twelve hours instead of the twenty-four in base Wordle, so you'll need to check in twice a day to keep up to date.

Aside from that, though, newcomers to Wordle 2 will probably feel quite comfortable. You start off with six blank white tiles before entering your first-word guess.

The tiles go green if the letter is in the word and the correct position. It'll go orange if it's in the word, but it's not the right place. Keep guessing based on those clues, and you should hopefully end up with all green tiles by the end. That'll add one to your streak, which is the best way to show off your prowess to friends.

What's the best Wordle 2 starting word?

As there's an additional letter to play with, it can be slightly difficult to decide which word to start with in Wordle 2. Many of the best first guesses in the original game focus on getting in as many vowels as possible, and generally speaking, that's a good approach to maintain in this sequel.

The best-starting word in Wordle 2 is "PIRATES." Not only does it contain four of the five possible vowels, but adding the 'S' to the end also covers any bases in terms of plurals. You're likely to get at least a few orange tiles and probably even a few greens in there, too. Some other good suggestions include SATIRE and POLITE, which also cover most vowel bases.

Are Wordle 2 and WordHurdle the same game?

Yes, Wordle2 and WordHurdle are the same game. For the first few months, the game was called Wordle2 despite having no official affiliation with the original Wordle.

Though it's unconfirmed, a notice at the top of the site that currently hosts the game suggests that the New York Times - who recently bought the rights to Wordle - requested that Wordle2 rebrand to avoid any copyright infringement issues, thus giving birth to WordHurdle.

Can I play previous Wordle 2 puzzles?

As with the base Wordle game, there is a cheeky way to access previous puzzles that have expired—or even peek into future challenges.

It's quite a simple method, as you only need to change the time on your device's calendar. That'll mean a bit of fiddling with your settings, to move yourself into the past or future. When that's done, refresh the Wordle 2 page, and a brand-new puzzle will greet you.

And that's it for the latest Wordle 2 answer list. Visit this page every 12 hours for the newest answers, so you can continue your winning streak in this slightly trickier Wordle spin-off.
