Summary

His wife, Dawn, an accountant for the Government Accountability Office, has a knack for numbers.Lately, that balance has been upset.Last week, Simpson introduced his wife to Wordle, a popular daily puzzle where players have six tries to guess the five-letter word of the day. All you need is a starter.Wordle sparks transatlantic rift as Brits denounce American English spelling of ‘favor’Some players think strategically, beginning each day with a word composed of commonly used letters, such as “stear” or “ratio.” Others go with the first five-letter word that pops into their brain. Earlier this week, the game’s creator, Josh Wardle, said it has more than 2.7 million players.Wardle told the New York Times that he built the game for his partner, Palak Shah, as a simpler diversion than the New York Times’s Spelling Bee. In December, Wardle added a feature so that players could share their results without disclosing the answer: a grid with the gray, yellow and green squares showing how many tries it took to get the answer.
