Wordle, the once-a-day word game that has been delighting puzzle nerds (and cluttering Twitter feeds) since launching in October of last year, has been purchased by New York Times… reports The New York Times newspaper. See you soon, old friend.
The game is the brainchild of Josh Wardle and his partner Palak Shah, and once a day it gives players six chances to guess a five-letter word. On a interview like Schedules earlier this month, Wardle admitted that the project was inspired in part by the Spelling Bee, one of the newspaper subscription games that Wordle will likely appear alongside soon.
