Pakistanis are hooked onto this game right now; this is what you need to know about Wordle
If you’re a regular Twitter user, your timeline is likely to be flooded with little green, yellow, white, and occasionally grey emoji charts on each refresh. The chart in question is an online puzzle game called Wordle, that has got people hooked worldwide, and now appears to be creating waves in Pakistan as well.
About the game:
Created by a Brooklyn-based programmer, Josh Wardle, Wordle challenges its players to guess a concealed five-letter word within six guesses. If you guess the word correctly, you’ll be rewarded with blissful self-satisfaction for the next 24 hours, and the cycle will begin again.
Pakistanis’ feedback: From activist, Nida Kirmani (@nidkirm) to lawyer, Abdul Moeez Jafrii (twt/jaferii), everyone is busy sharing their daily scores on Twitter, but some people still don’t know what exactly is Wordle as one of the users, Mansoor (twt/memonburger) asked: “What is a wordle and how do i get it?” A Wordle player, Moiz Kazmi (twt/moizkazmi) shared his analogy: “#Wordle is giving Farmville and Dubsmash tough competition. It’s giving Omicron surge stay-at-home isolation. ACTUALLY: Wordle is to Omicron as Among Us is to first wave. Lolz. Goodnight! Did today’s wordle in 3 mins exactly.”
