The internet has been taken by storm over the past few weeks by a game that has a simple concept but can be pretty difficult. The game is called Wordle. If you've played it, you know how addicting it can be. While you can play the original, we have created three Quad Cities-themed Wordle puzzles for you to try and solve.

What Is Wordle:

If you're a fan of games, you either have already fallen in love with Wordle, or you will. Wordle was created by a UK software engineer, Josh Wardle, for his partner who loves playing word games while curled up on the couch.

Recently, Josh sold Wordle to the New York Times. He released a statement on Monday explaining why he sold it:

The upside to Wordle has been that there are no pop-up ads, no login needed, and you don't have to pay for anything, including playing the game.

The New York Times' purchase of Wordle has many users worried that Worlde will lose those perks later down the road.

How To Play Wordle:

You start by choosing a five-letter word and typing it out into the grid. A wrong letter will highlight grey, whereas a correct letter will turn yellow, and if the letter happens to be in the correct spot it turns green. You have six tries to guess the word. Wordle posts a new game every 24 hours on its website which means you can only play on your device once a day. You can play on different devices, but that's no fun when you know the word.

If you want to share how good you are at the daily Wordle puzzle, Wardle also created a way for players to copy and paste their colored squares without giving away the word onto Twitter, where thousands are sharing their scores daily.
