How to Play Letterle

Looking for an alternative to Wordle? Letterle could be the game for you. Unlike Wordle, Letterle is all about selecting the correct letter of the day—plus, you have 26 tries to guess it correctly, so it’s impossible to lose! We’ve covered everything you need to know about this super simple game, so you can enter the alphabetic fray as soon as possible.

[Edit]See if the letter is green or gray.

  1. The tile lights up green for a correct guess and gray for an incorrect guess. Each incorrect letter also gets grayed out on the keyboard after you click or tap on it.[2]

    • Since Letterle guesses are either right or wrong, you won’t see any gold-colored tiles like you would in Wordle.

[Edit]Guess again if the letter you selected turns gray.

  1. Continue choosing different letters until you win. It’s not common to win Letterle on the first try, so keep guessing other letters from the keyboard until you pick the winner.[3]

    • Don’t be discouraged if you don’t get a good score at first—you can always just refresh and try again!

[Edit]Try different strategies.

  1. Letterle is luck-based so you’re not limited to one approach. Chances are, you won’t run into the same winning letter 2 games in a row—so, you have a slightly better chance of guessing the correct letter during the next game if you avoid the letters from the previous games. You can also try guessing letters in alphabetical or reverse alphabetical order.

    • Try switching between consonants and vowels instead of guessing a long string of consonants.

[Edit]Share your score on social media.

  1. Copy and paste your Letterle score on Twitter or another platform. After you win, a pop-up box appears, telling you how many guesses it took you. Beneath this text is a green “Share” button, which copies your results to your clipboard. From there, simply paste them onto Twitter, Facebook, or another social media platform of your choice.
