The New York Times bought Wordle. The paper has many games. Wordle is a new game. It was uploaded in October. It is now a worldwide craze. Social media is full of posts from people playing it and sharing their score. The price the New York Times paid was "in the low seven figures". The newspaper called it a "magical game".

Wordle's maker made Wordle for his partner to play. He said: "The game has got bigger than I ever imagined." Ninety people played it on the day of its release. Millions now play it every day. Players have to guess a five-letter word. They get feedback if the letters they have used are correct or not. The game will be free for now.
