Wordle players who can’t resist posting their scores on social media to show off their verbal skills can now expose friends to this behavior in person. Hasbro and New York Times Games announced plans to launch a physical adaptation of the online word game phenomenon Wordle: The Parlor Game, designed to be played with multiple players or teams.
Every round of Wordle: The party game begins with a player (the so-called “Wordle Host”) writing down a secret word. The rest of the players have six tries to guess it, similar to the online version. Players who make fewer attempts to guess the secret word get fewer points, and the player with the fewest points at the end of the game wins. The game includes three wordle boards, a secret word board for the host and dry erase markers. There is also a set of physical green and yellow tiles that mimic those used in the game.
The board game costs $19.99 and is available to pre-order today from Amazon, Target, and Hasbro online stores. Wordle: The party game is expected to hit stores in October, which will also mark the one-year anniversary of the online game’s release to the public. Since its debut, the oddly addictive word game has been by the New York Times and inspired a number of spin-offs, including , in which players identify countries based on their exports, and Heardle, a guessing game of popular songs. Earlier this week, Spotify Heardle for an undisclosed sum.
