Share Airportle



Airportle is similar to Wordle, but instead of guessing words, players must decipher airport codes. After making their first guess, the letters they've chosen will be highlighted in one of three colors: green if the letter is correct and in the correct position, yellow if the letter appears in the airport code but in a different position, and gray if the letter does not appear in the code. If the correct code is not entered after six attempts, users receive the dreaded "X," indicating that they did not complete the day's puzzle.

The company, which based the game on Wordle's open source clone, hopes that the travel-themed version of the game will not only provide some entertainment during flight delays, but will also allow airport enthusiasts to show off their knowledge of those tricky three-letter codes.

You'd think that reducing a five-letter challenge to a three-letter challenge would make this Wordle version easier. However, given that Airportle uses the International Air Transport Association (IATA) list of airport codes from around the world,

Airportle, like Wordle, only issues one challenge per day, so you won't be caught up in a hot streak and miss your flight. If you have time for a few more rounds, try Taylordle for Taylor Swift fans, BRDL for bird lovers, and Sweardle for potty mouths. Pro tip: You can also play Wordle in other languages, so brush up on your mother tongue before you go.
