Beyond being a mouthful, Worldle is a popular tribute to the original that tasks users with guessing a country or territory based on a picture of its outline. After every incorrect guess, users are given two hints: how far their guess is from the correct answer, and in what direction they’d have to move on the map to reach the right answer, relative to their guess. Each day, the country is chosen at random. If you’re struggling, don’t sweat it: Worldle’s creator, Antoine Teuf, readily admits that he often lost at his own game when he first released it. One good guess to start with is Egypt, as its central position on the map can help isolate the hemisphere of the answer early on.
