Remember your early-morning airport trips with Airportle. The game has six tries and was designed by Scott's Cheap Flights, a travel company with over two million subscribers that provides information about low-cost airline tickets. A lot of people will probably find that mind-numbingly boring. But for travel nerds? This could be the Wordle you've been looking for.
Airportle is like the original Wordle in that players get five guesses, but each day the hidden word is a three-letter IATA airport code, like LAX for Los Angeles or ORD for Chicago O'Hare. After making their first guess, players will see the letters they chose highlighted in one of three colors: green if the letter is correct and in the right place; yellow if the letter is in the airport code but in a different spot; and gray if the letter doesn't appear in the code. If a player fails to nail the code within six attempts, they lose that day's game.
This version of Wordle, which reduces a five-letter challenge to a three-letter one, is actually quite challenging due to the large overlap in IATA codes. The airport must be listed on the International Air Transport Association's (IATA) official list of airports. One must keep in mind that there are almost 20,000 different airports in the world, and each has its own IATA code. Airportle is therefore quite difficult, especially if you don't care about airports.
Airportle, like Wordle, only has one daily task. Try Taylordle, BRDL, and Sweardle, if you have time to play a few more rounds, which are all spinoffs of the original game. You can play Wordle in other languages.
