Wordle is getting an official party game by Hasbro in October
Hasbro and The New York Times announced Thursday that Wordle, the wildly popular online word game, is getting a physical board game version. Wordle: The Party Game will be available for purchase in North America in October and is available for pre-order today through the game’s official website.
According to a joint press release from Hasbro and NYT Games, Wordle: The Party Game will let two to four players compete against each other to solve word puzzles. In each round, a player is designated as a “word host”, who writes a secret word that the rest of the players must try and guess. Like the original game, players will have a maximum of six attempts to guess what the word is. The fewer attempts a player has to make to successfully guess a word, the lower the score. The player with the lowest score at the end of the game wins.
Hasbro promises classic Wordal gameplay rules and some variations with a “beat the clock” mode and team-based word-guessing action.
Wordle’s official board game retails for $19.99 and is available for purchase from Amazon, Hasbro’s Pulse website, and Target. The box includes three word boards, three shields, a secret word board, three dry-erase markers, 45 green tiles, 45 yellow tiles and a game guide.
