Wordle Creators Accused Of Using “A Stupidly Easy Word” In Today’s Game To “Mess With” Users

Wordle creators have been accused of using “a stupidly easy word” in today’s game to “mess with” users.

Players of the daily word game, which was recently taken over by The New York Times, have taken to Twitter to share their shock at the surprisingly “normal” word on 21st February 2022.

Roy took to Twitter to guess what “Wordle HQ”’s thoughts were behind today’s installment, writing: “Now use a stupidly easily word to really mess with their heads [sic]”, alongside a photo of Ant and Dec from ITV's Saturday Night Takeaway, where the pair tell a contestant what to do and say via an earpiece. 

Another Wordle user had the same idea, penning: “Finally a normal wordle”, while another similarly echoed: “Finally… A normal word”. 

Meanwhile, a different player of the game found the latest word to be “harrowing”. 

“Oh, that was harrowing”, @MantaNebula wrote on the social media site.

The difficulty fans have faced with the game comes after users previously the game as “more difficult now” after struggling with the word on 18th February 2022.

The mishap meant that many players decoded the “difficult” wordle 244 on the fifth or sixth try. 

The latest Wordle reaction comes around a week after the game was taken over by The New York Times after the original creator, Josh Wardle, sold the game for a currently unknown seven-figure amount.
