Nerdle is a guessing game like Wordle, but you have to use numbers and symbols to make a simple math equation. But you can't just type in any characters and hit "Submit" because your equation has to make sense. This might sound like homework, but once you get the hang of it, it can be fun.
Players start a game of Nerdle with a blank grid, just like they do when they play the word version. You can use any number from 0 to 9 and one or more of the four operation signs in your guess. Each guess must have the equals sign and only one number after it, but other than that, there are almost no limits to what you can do. Your tile will turn green if the number or sign is right and in the right place. It will turn purple if the number or sign is right but in the wrong place, and it will turn black if you were wrong on both counts. Nerdle can be difficult, but it's also a good way for kids to work on their math skills (just as Wordle is a great way to expand their vocabulary).
To help you on your daily trip, here are some fundamental suggestions for keeping a near-perfect approach to the game:
Try as many numbers as you can on your first try. This will set the pattern for the rest of the equation, making it easier to guess the answer. In the second guess, use two or more symbols to get a clearer picture of the answer. Try to come up with the most effective answer possible. You can use the color grading clues given by the numbers and symbols.
