Word was first developed during the coronavirus lockdown by Josh Wardle, a New York-based software engineer who simply wanted a game “for me and my partner to enjoy.”
Despite these humble origins, the game quickly became a global sensation upon its release to the public in October 2021, with some hardcore fans sharing its results each morning on social media. In January 2022, Wardle sold Word to The New York Times, for an unspecified seven-figure sum. The game remained free to play and has shown little sign of losing its extraordinary popularity.

“Choosing a word that starts with q, z, j or x, for example, may not be the best choice. As you get more feedback after some guesswork, users should take advantage of some phonetics knowledge to narrow down or eliminate some words they might be thinking of.”
