How to play Nerdle
Jumping into a game of Nerdle is quick, easy, and more importantly - free! Hop on over to the game's website, and from there you'll be well on your way to getting into a game.
When making your guess, you'll have to use any combination of the numbers and symbols shown at the bottom of where you'll submit your answer. You're limited to how many guesses you'll be able to make in any one game, as well, as it's six strikes and you're out - so make sure to take your time prior to submitting an answer.
Thankfully, though, you're not completely in the dark, because Nerdle will display one of three colours to tell you how you're doing after you've given your answer:
- Green: You did it! This particular number or symbol is in the right place
- Purple: You're on the right track, as this number or symbol is in the answer - it's just in the wrong spot
- Black: Strike this from your answer completely, as it's not anywhere in the equation for today
Of course, you'll always need to submit a '=' in your answer, but its placement within the grid can differ depending on the particular equation.
As each day is different and you're not given an initial launching off point on any given day, one thing that may help to get you started is to use the same particular answer daily when starting a game, as you'll get a quick look into what goes where or if something is even in the equation for today. Then you can make note of what's there, and what isn't, and then adjust accordingly - but you'll then only have five tries left.
When does the next game for Nerdle begin?
According to the message I received upon completing a game, Nerdle will reset itself at Midnight GMT, meaning you'll have ample time to submit your answer - particularly if you really don't want to use our guide to spoil it for you.
