Redactle asks you to figure out what's on a Wikipedia page that's been covered up, and it's very hard. If you're a fan of the Wikipedia Game, Redactle is for you.
There are many Wordle clones, many of which are based on the exact same concept but showcase a specific theme. Others, while borrowing the '-dle' suffix, do something different and unique, such as Heardle, where you guess a song by listening to only part of it.
Redactle challenges you to guess multiple words to identify a random Wikipedia page. It may be the game's hardest variation yet. You must guess the censored words to determine what article you're reading. When you first start, it's very hard since you don't even have anything to go on, but it gets easier as you fill in more words and understand what the article's about.
You'll see a Wikipedia article with so many blanks that it looks like the Mueller Report, and you'll have to guess words, any words. As you find words that were taken out before, the article will become easier to understand. If you can guess the title of the article, you win.
Thankfully, Redactle does not use every Wikipedia article available. The list is based on Wikipedia's own Vital Articles Level 4, which is comprised of roughly 10,000 topics. That's still a small number of Wikipedia's over 6 million articles. Possible articles could include: Greco-Roman wrestling, algebraic topology, or Ralph Waldo Emerson, but not, say, an article about classical music concerts with unruly audiences or Bread dildo (yes, it's a real thing).
Redactle takes a lot more time than Wordle because you can guess as many times as you want. But the puzzle changes every day, and if you click the "Info" button at the top of the page, you can see the answer to the last puzzle if you couldn't figure it out.
Your performance in the game is also recorded, so you can see how many guesses you made and how accurate they were. Just like in Semantle, you can guess as many times as you want. And you'll need a lot of guesses, trust us.
