It’s the unlikely craze that swept the globe – six guesses to find a five-letter word, in a mobile game built by a Welsh software engineer to play with his partner. Yes, if you’ve not yet tried your hand at Wordle then you might be in the minority – and if you’re one of those who’s kept a winning streak going since discovering the game, then you’re part of a very special club indeed!


Since just about everyone loves the quick and compact form of this mobile marvel, as well as the chance to share results afterwards, it didn’t take long for similar games to pop up – and some of them might just become your new daily obsession! So whether you’re into words or numbers, movies or music, it’s time to grab your phone and have a go at a few fiendish and fun daily quiz games…





This quad-box quiz is essentially four Wordles in one; each day, you’ll have nine guesses to find four different answers. It won’t take you long to figure out that there’s a little bit more strategy involved in your early guesses, but once you get the hang of it you’ll swear it’s four times as fun as the original! One major benefit is that there is a practice mode, so you can get up to speed fairly quickly – but as usual, it’s the daily puzzle that’s front and centre!






For the maths-minded out there, this is the one you’ve been waiting for! Every day delivers a mystery equation involving eight tiles – and from there, it’s time to get your thinking cap on! It’s an ingenious test of logic, doubles as an Ed Sheeran album title generator, and if it tickles your fancy then there’s a range of variations including mini challenges and speed rounds to get stuck into. Studying for the Leaving Cert was never this much craic…






If you reckon you’re blessed with a photographic memory, then this movie-based mind-teaser is your chance to prove it! There’s no movement and no dialogue; just six stills from a flick, revealed one by one until you’ve worked it out. It’s a great chance to test your skills against your film buff mates, and might even provide some inspiration for what to watch come your next movie night, too!






Anybody who subscribes to the adage of, ‘Don’t bore us, get to the chorus’ might have some struggles with this audio puzzle, which prompts you to identify a tune after playing a tiny snippet of the song’s intro. The goal, of course, is to get it in as few of your six guesses as possible – but you’ll need an encyclopaedic knowledge of count-ins and opening chords to ace this one!






The best quiz games will help you learn while you play – and it’s almost certain that your knowledge of Oceanic islands and sub-Saharan Africa will improve dramatically after a few rounds with this planet-straddling puzzle!
