Redactle is a cruel twist on Wordle that may require hundreds of guesses. If you correctly guess a word, it will be revealed, and once you've discovered a large number of words, you might be able to guess the topic of the article. Redactle, which is another Wordle-inspired puzzle game where your guesses can easily number in the dozens or even hundreds before you solve it (or give up)

How to play

  • You'll see a Wikipedia article with so many blanks that it resembles the Mueller Report, and you'll be forced to guess words, any words. The article will become easier to understand as you find words that were previously removed. You win if you correctly guess the title of the article.
  • Redactle, thankfully, does not use every Wikipedia article available. The list is based on Wikipedia's Vital Articles Level 4, which contains approximately 10,000 topics. That is still a small proportion of the over 6 million articles on Wikipedia. Articles about Greco-Roman wrestling, algebraic topology, or Ralph Waldo Emerson are all possibilities, but not about classical music concerts with rowdy audiences or Bread dildo (yes, it's a real thing).
  • Because you can guess as many times as you want, Redactle takes much longer than Wordle. However, the puzzle changes daily, and if you click the "Info" button at the top of the page, you can see the solution to the previous puzzle if you couldn't figure it out.
  • Your performance in the game is also recorded, so you can see how many correct guesses you made. You can guess as many times as you want, just like in Semantle. And, believe us, you'll need a lot of guesses.
