What Is Octordle?

The best description of Octordle is that it is wordle but much harder. It is a game specifically built for anyone who has mastered Wordle gameplay and is craving a harder challenge. That is also why the game takes Wordle’s core concept and multiplies its complexity by more than eightfold.

The game proposes a true test for your strategic mind, mental agility, and vocabulary. Of course, you also get the chance to brag to all your friends if you manage to beat it through its social and archiving features.

How To Play Octordle Game

The fundamentals of Octordle are not that different from the classic Wordle game. You still need to guess words formed from 5 characters; the color-changing pattern doesn’t differ.

You know it’s a correct letter in the precise position when the tile turns green, while a misplaced letter translates to a yellow tile. The tile is grayed out if the letter is not in the answer.

The difference, however, lies in the complexity of this variant. Instead of just one five-letter word, you need to guess a total of 8 words. Of course, you have more chances to trial and error your way through. Only after failing 13 times do you get to the game over screen.

You should also remember that any guess you enter will apply to all eight grids. This feature adds another layer of depth to the game, making it much more challenging and interesting.

Tips To Play Octordle

The best tip is to always choose an initial word with several common vowels. Some good examples are “arise” and “crane”. After all, there are only five vowels, while every single word in existence uses at least one vowel.

Another tip to remember is to keep track of the clues you have gathered. Unlike the classic Wordle, you are juggling a lot of words at the same time. As a result, there is no way that your brain can use every single hint, leading to you losing the game.

Sometimes, you should temporarily forget about the whole picture and focus narrowly on one grid. Doing so ensures you can use all of your brain’s computing prowess in one word. If you are lucky, you may also get some hints for the other words while solving this one word.

There will be times when being careful won’t finish the job. Then, you need to be bold while guessing. Throw a less obvious word in as a guess and see if it can eliminate potential letters. This approach can also help you confirm the correct placement for the letters you guessed.


All in all, we believe that Octordle is a mind-bending and demanding wordplay exercise not for the faint of heart. However, there is also no denying the immense satisfaction of finally cracking all eight puzzles.

If you believe in your mental capability and vocabulary, let’s play a round of Octordle.
