Players are griping that Wordle, the popular, socially-shareable online word game, has changed since the New York Times took it over. So play these instead.
It’s Wordle, but with dirty words. How are you not playing this already?
This one’s for geography junkies. Instead of a mystery word, it’s a mystery country. You get six guesses to identify it, and with each guess you get clues as to how far away your guess is from the mystery country, and what direction you’d need to move in to get there. Fun! Well, fun if you know world geography. A nightmare if you don’t.
