The hit online puzzler Wordle is transformed into a multiplayer board game. The New York Timeswhich Wordle bought earlier this year, is partnership with Hasbro to bring Wordle from the digital world to the physical Wordle: The party game later this year.
Wordle became popular in large part because it seemed like literally everyone was sharing their findings on Twitter, at least for a while. But actually solving a Wordle puzzle is generally a lonely endeavor. in the Wordle: The Parlor Game, However, Wordle becomes a group activity.
A player thinks of a five-letter word that other players must first try to guess.

Wordle: The party game will be available in North America in October and you can pre-order it starting Thursday for $19.99. The game’s website says it will ship on October 1st, but warns that this is an approximate date and is subject to change.
