President Arif Alvi couldn't escape the Wordle fever

His son shared that the President has always enjoyed puzzles

Entertainment Desk February 03, 2022

A free online puzzle game Wordle is the latest trend on Twitter where people share their daily scores in form of emoji charts. Seems like President Arif Alvi has also joined the bandwagon and has now tried his hand at Wordle. The Head of State posted his score on the micro-blogging app on Thursday morning.

Awab Alvi, his son, quote tweeted the score chart to share that the President has always “enjoyed puzzles” and so it was only a matter of time before he “got hooked onto” it. It seems like the Alvi family has one too many fans of the online puzzle game. Awab hinted at an inter-family Wordle competition in the place where three generations share scores daily — how fun!

Wordle, created by Josh Wardle, a Brooklyn-based programmer, asks users to guess a pre-determined hidden five-letter word within six guesses. If you do manage to guess the word, you’re rewarded with bliss of self-satisfaction for 24 hours and the cycle begins again.

Since there’s a new word every day, which stays the same for anyone playing anywhere in the world, there’s an extra level of competitiveness on a shared global level. The game picked up its pace when a share button was added for people to brag about their scores without revealing the word.
