How to Play a Printable Wordle Game

You will need 2 people to play the printable version of Wordle.

Player 1: is the player that will guess the word.
Player 2: chooses the word and changes the letters to green or yellow.

Start by having Player 1 (the person guessing the word) add their first word guess in all grey letters. You’ll need another player that knows the word answer to react to the guesses.

The player with the word answer (Player 2) will then change any of the letters to the following:
GREEN: change to green if the letter is in the correct space
YELLOW: change to yellow if the letter is in the word but is not in the correct space

Player 1 then looks at what letters they got right. In this case they only got a T correct and the T is in the correct spot for the word.

Wordle first word guess

Player 1 then makes another word as a guess. This time they guessed GHOST. Player 2 changes the G & H to yellow to indicate that the letters are in the word but are in the incorrect spots.

Wordle second word guess

Player 1 then makes another guess and guesses. This time they guess the word LIGHT. And Player 2 changes the I, G, H to green to indicate these letters are in the correct spot.

Wordle third word guess

Finally, Player 1 guesses the word EIGHT and gets the answer. They could have also guessed NIGHT or MIGHT as an option since N and M were not already guessed.

Wordle fourth word guess

For a shorter word version we also made a 4 letter template for you to use! This is easier for younger kids that may not know how to spell 5 letter words. Keep in mind that since you only have 4 letters in each word it may take more tries to get the answer.
