What’s the deal here? Wordle was created and developed by former Reddit engineer Josh Wardle as a gift for his puzzle-loving partner, but soon went mega-viral.

This includes battle royale format Squabble, music identification game Heardle, and variations like Dordle and Quordle that make you guess multiple words at once.
