Just like everyone else, we’re big fans of Wordle. But one round a day really isn’t enough to hold us over ’til game night. Luckily, there are tons of other games like Wordle out there to play when you’re bored (or waiting for tomorrow’s board). Read on for 12 of our favorites.

1. Wordle Unlimited

If all you want in life is an endless supply of O.G. Wordle puzzles, look no further. The rules are exactly the same to boot.

2. Crosswordle

Why wait ’til Sunday to get your crossword fix? Solve multiple words at once that fit into each other on a grid. Once you’re an expert, try your luck at hard mode.

3. Absurdle

Like a challenge? Absurdle is coded to use your guesses against you for a more challenging game. To win, you’ll have to guess until there’s only one possible secret word that could be the answer.

4. SpellTower

Tetris meets Wordle. Letters come up from the bottom of the screen, so you’ll have to make your guesses swiftly to stay in the game. Each word you successfully complete eliminates the used letters.

5. Wordscapes

Chip away at a sprawling crossword by making words with specific letters shown to you in a bank. The pretty landscapes behind each puzzle are just a bonus.  

6. Dordle

Imagine Wordle, but with two puzzles that you’ll have to figure out simultaneously. Don’t panic, though: Your guesses count towards both solutions.

7. Wheeldle

Just like Wordle, but way easier on the eyes. We’re guessing your kids will love the Super Mario-inspired design.

8. Worldle

Nope, that’s not a typo. This remix is all about geography. The game will show you a country and you’ll have to guess which it is. If you get it wrong, it’ll tell you the distance between your guess and the right answer, as well as what direction on a map the correct response is in.

9. Taylordle

Swifties rejoice. This Taylor Swift-themed take on Wordle stars five-letter words that are specific to the singer’s career, album names, songs and more.

10. Lewdle

If Wordle and Cards Against Humanity had a baby, it’d be Lewdle. Not only is every solution a blush-worthy word, but the game also won’t accept your guess unless it’s also a lewd term.

11. Wizarding Wordle

Calling all Harry Potter fans! Your brain already has a wizarding dictionary built in, so try your hand at this themed rendition of Wordle. Solutions range from character names to spells.


12. Quordle

Aka Dordle times two. You’ll have nine chances to solve four different word puzzles in tandem. It may seem too tough to be fun, but just think of all those green squares that await you on a perfect board.
