Wordle is a game in which once a day players get six chances to guess a five-letter word. It has had a meteoric rise: It first appeared in October; had 90 users on Nov. 1; and now millions play the game daily. Have you ever played? If not, try it.
On Jan. 31, The New York Times Company announced that they had acquired it, and that, at least initially, it would stay free.
