Do you find Wordle too easy these days? If the answer is yes, it’s time to gear up and play Dordle. The term Dordle sounds like a Wordle spin-off that would be focusing on any specific base of players, however, it isn’t that. It is a brilliant twist to the original game making it more fun and challenging.
Wordle’s huge popularity has given rise to many games that are similar to it in nature, but Dordle adds more to the concept. It is like Wordle but double or twice at the same time. Yes, you have guessed it right, you have to guess two words simultaneously in Dordle.
Other things are just the same, except for certain rules that we’ll explain here. It is the perfect addition to your free time if you enjoy playing Wordle. You can enjoy it directly from any web browser.
What is Dordle?
Dordle is a Wordle alternative and spin-off built especially for players who find the original game created by Josh Wardle too easy. It is created by an indie games developer Guilherme Tows under Zaratustra Productions. He credits Wordle as the inspiration behind the game and describes it as “Wordle plus Wordle.”
It is a highly challenging HTML 5-based word-guessing game that you can play directly from your browser. You need to guess two five-letter words, concurrently, in 7 or fewer turns. Whereas, in Wordle, you only guess a single five-letter word in 6 or fewer attempts.
Another major difference between Wordle and Dordle is that the former only has a single game mode, and you can play it once every day. However, Dordle offers two game modes, and if you want, you can also play it multiple times a day.
Dordle has two Modes: Daily Dordle & Free Dordle
Dordle offers two game modes that you can access from the main game page. The first one is Daily Dordle which is just like Wordle where the whole world gets a single puzzle consisting of two concurrent words every day.
You can play it only once a day using seven attempts. If you win or lose, you’ll have to come back the next day to play again.
Another mode is Free Dordle which is more similar to Wordle Unlimited where you can play the game as many times as you want. It is very useful when you want to practice your word-guessing skills. Although this mode doesn’t have any connection to the community.
You will get random word puzzles every time. The rules will stay the same but there is no limit on how many times you can enjoy unraveling the mystery.
How to Play Dordle?
You can play Dordle just like Wordle right from any browser including Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Brave, etc. Just launch a web browser and head over to this website. Next, you have to choose the Dordle mode you want to play.
Click on Daily Dordle or Free Dordle depending on your preferences. The method and rules to play both modes will be the same. You will see not one but two Wordle-like grids of 5×7 size each. You have to guess and enter words into these grids to find the mystery Dordle.
Dordle provides you with 7 attempts, as compared to Wordle’s 6, however, you need to guess two different (or same) words using them. You’ll have to use your brain and guesses very wisely in order to guess both words correctly.
The columns or tiles will keep changing colors when you enter a word. The green tile means you have entered the right letter in the right spot, the yellow tile means you have entered the right letter in the wrong spot, and the grey tile means that the letter is not present in either of the words.
Rules to Play Dordle
Dordle uses similar rules that Wordle has but you need to guess two words concurrently in 7 or fewer attempts. The key twist that Dordle has is in terms of the change of colors in tiles. There are the usual green, yellow, and grey tiles.
However, there are also partially colored tiles which could be half green on the left and half green on the right or half grey on the left, or half yellow on the right.
These partially colored tiles depict the following:
- Half-green on left & Half-yellow on right: The letter is present at the same spot in the left grid and at a different spot in the right grid.
- Half-yellow on left & Half-green on right: The letter is present at a different spot in the left grid and at the same spot in the right grid.
- Half-green on left & Half-grey on right: The letter is present at the same spot in the left grid and not present in the right grid.
- Half-yellow on left & Half-grey on right: The letter is present at a different spot in the left grid and not present in the right grid.
- Half-grey on left and Half-green on right: The letter is not present in the left grid and at the same spot in the right grid.
- Half-grey on left and Half-yellow on right: The letter is not present in the left grid and at a different spot in the right grid.

Key Tips & Tricks While Playing Dordle
Dordle can be very challenging for most players as it requires guessing two words concurrently in only seven attempts. We are sharing certain key tips and tricks that you can use to ace the game easily.
The first thing that you should keep in mind is to carefully pick the first word when starting the game. Wordle is easy, you can enter any random word and still guess the right word. However, Dordle is different. You should only input a useful first word consisting of popular letters. Do not enter words having rarely used letters like Q, X, Z, etc.
Another thing you should do is carefully read and keep an eye on the tiles and keyboard while entering words. The best approach while playing Dordle is to focus all your attention on guessing a single word as quickly as you can using 3 or 4 attempts at most.

After that, you can relax and guess the second word in the remaining tries. Don’t focus too much on the word that is perplexing you. Let the game unravel itself a bit and you’ll figure things out.
You can also seek help from websites that offer help to solve word puzzles. There are plenty of them available just within a Google search. The rest of the strategies will be the same that you use while playing Wordle.
