The phenomenon of wordle continues to expand, now offline, as its owner the New York Times he wants to keep taking the game out of his brand, and he just released a board game.
Following a partnership with Hasbro, the media firm said Thursday that the board game, called Wordle: The Party GameI know will launch in October in North America. You can pre-order it at Amazon, Target, and Hasbro Pulse for $19.99.
While the online version of Wordle is a single player game where you have to guess a five letter word in six tries, the offline game tries to recreate the same experience while pitting you against other players.
«In each round, a player designated as the Host of Wordle writes a Secret Word. Like the original Wordle game, players have six attempts to guess a five-letter word. But in this game, players are competing against each other,” NYT said in a press release.
“The fewer attempts a player needs, the fewer points they will score. The player with the fewest points at the end of the game wins. For those who have always wanted more Wordle than you could get in the online format – designed to be just one word per day – the board game has a clear advantage: you can set as many secret words as you like.
