If Amazon’s new Rings of Power series has fired up your interest in Lord of the Rings, you’re not alone. A fun way to test your LOTR knowledge is through Wordle clone Lordle of the Rings, which gives you a daily puzzle to guess a Lord of the Rings-themed five-letter word.
Be warned: It’s not just five-letter character names, which I learned halfway through playing it when I ran out of viable options. It involves any word at all that appears in a Lord of the Rings book.
Wordle, which was purchased by The New York Times for a seven-figure sum in January, is a daily word puzzle that took the internet by storm. When it was bought, it had millions of daily users, according to The New York Times. The game features a new five-letter word every day that you get six guesses to get right.
Like in Wordle, the Lord of the Rings version features boxes that turn yellow if you guess the right letter but in the wrong spot, or green for the right letter in the right spot. Gray boxes mean the letter isn’t in the word at all.
