While maybe not as fiendish as Octordle, Scholardle is another tougher Wordle variant that specialises in more obscure words.
So far, when it comes to more challenging versions of Wordle, the likes of Quordle and Octordle arguably have you covered. However, their challenge lies in the fact that you have to multitask and solve multiple Wordle puzzles at once.
What if you want the exact same game as Wordle but significantly tougher? Well, original Wordle offers a hard mode, but it still pulls from the same library of words. Scholardle, on the other hand, narrows its word pool down.
You might think that would make it easier except Scholardle only uses the most commonly used words in academia. So, its answers will be far more obscure, especially if you’re not an academic yourself.
It otherwise functions exactly like Wordle and while answers are unlikely to be words such as ‘table’ or ‘house,’ you can still use them to narrow down what the real answer is.
Unlike some of the other Wordle clones, this one tracks your stats like regular Wordle and there’s an option to share your answer on social media. It even has Wordle’s hard mode, where you must use any revealed hints in subsequent guesses, and a dark mode and high contrast accessibility mode for those with visual impairments.
However, it also only offers one puzzle a day, with no option to replay previous ones. There is a demand for such a feature though, as evidenced by the fan-made Wordle archive – even if The New York Times requested it be shut down.
Considering all the Wordle clones and variants remain available, those are probably safe from suffering a similar fate, especially since they’re free. Although there are a few cheeky Wordle knock-offs on app stores that offer in-game purchases.
