We're here to help if you get stuck - it's America's birthday right now, but Wordle never sleeps. It's a worldwide phenomenon, baby.

There's a spoiler at the end of this article for the July 4 Wordle, puzzle #380, so don't worry if you don't want to know the answer yet.

The game was created as a family WhatsApp exercise by Josh Wardle and his word-game-loving partner at the end of 2021.

The New York Times bought it from him in early 2022. It is now played by hundreds of thousands.

Wordle's original Wordle is only available through the New York Times' website, not the iOS App Store or Google Play Store.

Using two vowels and a few consonants such as S, T, R, or N can help you pick the perfect first move (or as close to perfect as you can get).

There is a Hard Mode you can activate if you find Wordle too easy. However, Wordle doesn't get harder without it.

In Wordle, the same puzzle is solved every day with the same answer. However, occasionally two correct solutions are accepted at the same time.

Wardle's original list was altered after the New York Times acquired Wordle earlier this year, removing obscure or potentially sensitive words.
