What is Nerdle? Similar to Wordle but with Numbers – How to Play?

What is Nerdle and How is it Different from Wordle?

If you are new and have no idea about what Wordle is, then here is a quick brief. Wordle is a simple word game. You will need to guess words. That is your only task.

Each day there is a word of the day which needs to be guessed by the players. It is said that Wordle has around 300,000 visits every day.

It also provides you with coloured feedback to make your life simpler. If you have placed a word in the right position, it will be highlighted in green colour. If the word is correct but is placed in the wrong position, it will be highlighted in yellow.If you put a wrong word, then it will be greyed out.


Each player playing the game will have 6 chances to guess the 5 letter word. This is what make things interesting for players.

It is simple, but it is tricky at the same time.

It’s just a word game, after all. But it’s extremely popular. According to The New York Times, over 300,000 people play it every day. That popularity may appear perplexing, but there are a few minor details that have caused everyone to go insane over it.


What is Nerdle?

If you are a Wordle fan and play it on a daily basis, the Nerdle should be a walk in the park for you. It is exactly like Wordle but has numbers instead of words.

The only drawback is that this game isn’t available on the Appstore or the Playstore. So the only way for you to play this game is through your web browser.

The goal of the game is simple, you will need to figure out the mysterious equation. Like every other math equation, this equation will also consist of numbers between 0 to 9 and operators like +,-,* and /. These are the only things that you will need to use. So even if you are not a maths fan, you will be able to solve these basic equations.

Since it includes math, most people think that this is tough to play the game. But let me tell you the game can be played by a 5 year old.

Just like Wordle, Nerdle also provides you with coloured feedback to make things easier for you.

Another thing that makes this game is easy that is, if you ever enter an equation that contradicts the laws of Mathematics, the game won’t accept this.

This is enough for you to understand that this game is not only for nerds but also for people like us who are not so good at Math.

In Nerdle, you use numbers instead of words. The symbols for addition (+), subtraction (-), multiplication (*), division (/), and equal to (=) accompany these values. These are combined in various possible ways to create equations.

Rational numbers, powers are accepted but complex numbers are not accepted by the game.

Order is important in Nerdle. If we’re searching for a result of 10 + 20 = 30, 20 + 10 = 30 isn’t close enough.

Order of equations is important.

Similar to Wordle, if your guess is in green colour, then congratulations you have made the right guess.

If the colour is purple, then don’t worry, you have made the right guess but then you have put it at the wrong location.

Finally, if any of them are black, it indicates that they do not appear anywhere in the answer. This means that your guess is wrong.

There is also an option to switch to the mini version of the game which is said to be easier and more fun to play.

Go to settings.

By clicking the settings symbol in the upper right corner, you can change it.

Make sure you toggle it on, to access mini Nerdle.
