‘Wordle’ #1,113 Clues and Answer for Saturday, July 6 Game

If you’re struggling with today’s Wordle don’t worry, you’re not alone, as the game’s creator often finds it difficult himself.

“[My partner] and I play it on the couch together each morning,” New York-based software engineer Josh Wardle told Newsweek in January 2022. “She will consistently get it in three goes, which is way, way better than I can ever hope to achieve. I normally need at least four or five attempts.”

The Welsh-born software engineer perfected Wordle during the COVID-19 lockdowns before releasing it to the public in October 2021.

After reaching 2 million players within just four months, the game grabbed the attention of The New York Times, which purchased the puzzle from Wardle in January 2022 for a seven-figure sum. It quickly became the publication’s most popular game.

How to Play Wordle

To solve the daily game, players need to work out a mystery five-letter word in six guesses or fewer and are guided by a color-coded tile system to let them know if they are on the right track.

A green tile means the letter is correct, while yellow tells you the letter appears in the word, but is in the wrong spot. Finally, a gray tile shows that the letter does not appear in the word at all.

Wardle also told Newsweek that the game owes its success to the fact that it is challenging while also being solvable.

“There is a reason that every word is five letters long and that you are allowed six attempts to guess it,” he previously said. “That might seem arbitrary but, with the prototype version, I tested different word lengths and experimented with the number of tries that players were allowed.”

Wardle added: “Through that process of refinement, I figured out that five letters and six tries was the ideal sweet spot. It’s just limited enough to feel challenging and to make you think, but most of the time people still manage to solve it. So, you feel a real sense of accomplishment.”
