Hasbro and New York Times Games are releasing a Wordle board game. Inspired by the digital version from New York Times Games, Wordle: The Party Game will be available in North America for purchase in October and available for pre-order at Wordlethepartygame.com.
In each round, a player designated as the Wordle Host, writes down a Secret Word. Just like the original Wordle game, players have six attempts to guess a five-letter word. But in this game, players are competing against others. The fewer tries a player needs, the fewer points they score. The player with the fewest points at the end of the game wins.
Wordle: The Party Game can be played repeatedly with the included dry-erase Wordle boards and markers. Players can also switch up the gameplay with four different ways to Wordle: classic play, fast, timed, or teams.
“Since Wordle burst onto the scene, it’s undoubtedly been a staple in social and pop culture vocabulary,” says Adam Biehl, senior vice president, general manager, Hasbro Gaming. “We’re beyond thrilled to work with New York Times Games to bring our gaming worlds together and extend Wordle in new ways.”
"Wordle truly brought us all together and that’s what makes it so special,” says Jonathan Knight, head, games, The New York Times. “With each daily puzzle, we’re connected with friends and family through social play. At New York Times Games, we’re focused on quality crafted puzzles that everyone can experience together, which is why we’re so excited to team up with Hasbro to bring a fresh new format to the global sensation of Wordle."
Since Josh Wardle released Wordle to the public in October 2021, Wordle exploded in popularity and rapidly became a daily obsession for solvers. The Times Company acquired the guessing game in early 2022, and Wordle is the latest addition to The Times’s portfolio of games since the launch of The Crossword in 1942.
