Warning: Spoiler alert.

Wordle: The highly addictive game that has taken the world by storm.

When Josh Wardle created the puzzle as a gift to his wife, no one predicted what was to come. The game has since been acquired by the New York Times and amassed millions of players.

For those who are new to the game, the rules are simple. The game gives six chances to guess a randomly generated five letter word.

If the square turns green, you have placed the correct letter in the right location.

A yellow square means you have guessed a correct letter, but it's not in the right location.

A grey square means that it's incorrect.

To make sure you don't lose your streak and before we reveal all, we’ll give you a hint: Something useful.
