What is Dordle?

Created by Guilherme S. Töws, better known as indie game developer Zaratustra Productions, Dordle is described as ‘Wordle Plus Wordle’. In other words, players must solve two Wordle puzzles in one! We mean this quite literal, as well, as your guesses apply to both grids at the same time. With just one additional guesses compared to vanilla Wordle to guess both answers, you should definitely consider this ‘hard mode’.

How to Play Dordle

Dordle’s gameplay will be familiar to anyone who has dabbled in Wordle or another of its many clones and spinoffs. Evoking classic Mastermind guess-work, players have just seven guesses to solve, in this case, the two daily five-letter words by typing on the on-screen keyboard. Clues are provided based on your previous answer – with orange signifying you’ve got a correct letter but in the wrong place, green meaning you’re on the money with the correct letter in the correct place, and grey for being absent from each word. The object of the game is ultimately to solve the puzzle in as few guesses as possible.

Dordle also includes a number of accessibility options, such as dark mode and different colour schemes, which may help those with colour-blindness. Players can even export and import their saves to keep track of their win/loss stats. Thoughtful. With its dual-grid gameplay and the need to use the same letters, keeping track of all the words you’re guessing can be tricky – although the keyboard’s two-tone colour coding certainly helps a little.

Daily Dordle

Daily Dordle is what you could describe as ‘classic mode’, with a new Dordle becoming available to play each day. With every user facing the same puzzle, players can compare their score – and of course, winning streak, with their friends for an added level of friendly competition.

Free Dordle

Unlike the original Wordle, you don’t necessarily have to wait until the next day for a new Dordle. Mess up your answer or just fancy another go? Free Dordle is for you, providing a theoretically unlimited number of random puzzles to solve, any time.

Dordle Hints & Strategy

Many of the same hints and strategies used in the original Wordle are also valid here, although it’s undeniable that Dordle comes with its own unique challenges, too. Below, are our main tips and tricks for solving today’s Dordle:

  • With a finite number of five-letter words in existence, studying a word list can be a shortcut to victory. There are many sites dedicated to providing all potential iterations.
  • Be aware of repeated letters! It’s a common pitfall that can exhaust multiple guesses. O, E, S and L are some of the most commonly repeated letters in the English language, so watch out for words containing some, or all, of these.
  • Many terms follow a similar pattern, with vowels appearing in letter 2 and 4 in the majority of five-letter words. Use this knowledge to your advantage.
  • Make use of some of the most common letters in the English language first – E, T, A, I, N, O, S, H and R.
  • Make your first two guesses completely unique – this should give you more potential letter coverage early on.

Dordle is certainly a challenge for the more seasoned Wordle players. If you find yourself struggling, even with our hints and strategy guide, consider lowering the difficulty by playing the vanilla version or one of its many daily puzzle spinoffs first.
