The 5 Hardest Wordle Words of 2023 Revealed

Hold on to your wordy hats, because The New York Times has just unleashed some Wordle wisdom that’s as amusing as a dancing dictionary! Brace yourselves for a rollercoaster ride through the wackiest wordplay stats of the past 12 months – including a linguistic gem from the late 2022 archives.

For the uninitiated, Wordle burst onto the scene in January 2022, and it’s been causing more brain cramps than a crossword puzzle on steroids ever since. The rules are simple yet diabolical: you get six chances to crack a five-letter code, with gray tiles telling you that a letter is MIA, yellow tiles revealing a letter’s presence but in the wrong spot, and green tiles signaling that you’ve struck gold in both letter and location.

Now, the NYT has spilled the beans on the top 5 brain-bending Wordle puzzles of the year, gauged by the sheer number of head-scratching turns it took to conquer them.

RIPER (February 22, 2023): Folks needed an average of 5.52 turns to put this one to bed. Maybe the word was just too ripe for the picking!

JUDGE (December 26, 2022): With an average of 5.57 turns, it turns out passing judgment on this word was no walk in the linguistic park. Court dismissed!

NANNY (June 3, 2023): Clocking in at 5.68 turns, unraveling the nanny-state mysteries of this word proved trickier than finding the TV remote. Mary Poppins, help us out!

JOKER (April 25, 2023): It took an average of 5.69 turns to unmask the punchline on this one. The joke’s on us, Wordle maestros!

JAZZY (June 1, 2023): Drumroll, please! The grand champion of wordplay warfare, requiring an average of 5.82 turns to crack. Clearly, this word was strutting its linguistic stuff with jazz hands and all. Bravo, Jazzy, bravo!
