You can find several Wordle spinoffs around at the moment. Basically, Adverswordle turns Worldle’s world upside down by having players pick a word and grade the computer’s guesses. But there is a catch though. You can still lose.
If you ever wanted to be Jigsaw of “Do you want to play a game?” fame, this Wordle-spinoff is definitely for you. Especially since you’re playing against AI and not a real person. It makes the activity far less creepy.
Quizmaster, not competitor
Adverswordle reverses roles by putting the AI in the player’s shoes. Rather than being put on the spot for your linguistic abilities, the player thinks of a five-letter word. Which the AI tries to figure out. If a letter is in the word but in the wrong place, the player clicks it once to mark the letter in yellow.
If a letter is in the correct position, plays click it twice to mark it green. Then, the AI guesses a new word. The player’s goal is to make the word as hard as possible, with the score based on how many guesses the AI needs to get it right. ‘Possible’ is the operative word here. Players lose when the AI guesses the correct word.
As with Wordle, Players get one attempt per day. The game AI has a new starting guess each time. Or you can be boring, and head back to safe old Wordle.
So many Wordles
