How To Solve Sunday May 1 Word Puzzle

The first Wordle brainteaser of the month might prove to stump even veteran players. Luckily Newsweek is on hand to provide some clues for those who want a little help.

Wordle’s simple gameplay has helped it attract millions of regular players who use its color-coded system to work out the answer within six attempts.

Green tiles are used to show the player the letter is correct and in the right place, while yellow tiles indicate the letter is right but in the wrong place and a gray tile means the letter is not in the word.

The word puzzle resets every day, so if players are stumped then all they need to do is wait a while for another game.

Creator Josh Wardle made Wordle available for the public to play in October 2021 after he worked on a game for him and his partner to enjoy playing during the COVID-19 pandemic.

When Wordle launched it had some 90 active players, but quickly grew to have an average daily player base of more than 45 million daily users.

Wordle became so popular that The New York Times Company purchased it for an undisclosed seven-figure sum in January. It then moved over to the publication’s website in February.

Wordle’s simple gameplay could explain how it became a global phenomenon in just a matter of months, and its meteoric rise can be seen in the following Statista graphic.
