5 products if you love Wordle, and 5 more games if you don't

It’s not all just fun and games. Sometimes it’s also a business opportunity where you never saw one coming.

Creator Josh Wardle sold his viral word game, Wordle, to the New York Times for an undisclosed amount in the “low seven figures.” The NYT said the game will continue on for free “initially” and Wardle said he's working with the media giant to make sure your wins and streaks will be preserved. Wardle, an ex-Reddit maker, created the word puzzle for his girlfriend (*nudges partner*).

Jonathan Knight, General Manager of Games at the New York Times, stated that Wordle “captured our collective imagination.” We saw that in the form of Wordle artwork and memes across the internet. Here at Product Hunt, we’ve also seen a lot of Wordle-inspired products, from analytics to tools that help solve your Wordle. And these great riffs off the five-letter game:

Pictle: A companion game where you must create specific pixel art patterns
Custom Wordle: Make and share your own words to challenge friends
Chengyu Wordle: Guess Chinese idioms in 6 tries
Stockle: Wordle, but with Stock tickers
Numble: Wordle for math lovers
