How does WordleOff work?

WordleOff can be played on both PC and mobile devices. You can even cross-platform and have both phone and PC players in the same session.

There are 2 ways of using WordleOff. Each user can either create a game (session) or join a game created by friends and family using a 9-digit ID.

Once you’re in the game, WordleOff follows Wordle’s word-guessing rules to a tee. The only difference is that WordleOff has to coordinate multiple players at the same time to keep the game in sync. In order to keep everything in sync, WordleOff doesn’t allow you to move on until everyone in the session has submitted a guess.

Though the crux of the playing rules is mostly similar, the two games differ significantly in their playing experience and the ways you can play them. Follow the guide below to know more about how to play WordleOff using various methods.

How to Reset a game in WordleOff

WordleOff is designed to play in multiplayer mode, with your friends. It also requires that all the players involved are at the same guess count at all times. But there can be situations when that is not permissible and one of the players has already entered a try before the rest could join the game. Let’s try to understand this situation with an example.

Let’s say Player 1 has created a game and shared the invite link with his friend, Player 2. Now, the game has 2 members, and everything’s perfect. Both players can begin their match. But what if Player 1 entered a guess before Player 2 could join? What would happen when Player 2 tries to join the game?

Well, Player 2 will be presented with the following error message.

In order to enter the game, Player 1 has to click the reset button from his browser window. let’s see how Player A can reset the grid. 

Open the WordleOff game that you want to reset.

You will find the RESET option under the WordleOff keyboard. Click on it.

The WordleOff grid has now been reset. Player 2 can now join the game with a fresh set of grids.

How does the game end in WordleOff?

Let’s say Player 2 was able to guess the word while Player 1 wasn’t. What happens then?

After all the tries have been exhausted, WordleOff will reveal the results itself. You will see both your and other members’ grids in detail, with all the guesses revealed along with their color-coding.

Not only that but unlike Wordle, WordleOff will reveal the secret word to all members along with a link to the meaning of this word. You can click this link (under the grids) if you wish to find out more about the word.

If you wish to play the game again with the same set of members, you can reset the game and play a brand new word again. Refer to our guide above to know more about resetting WordleOff.

Does WordleOff have the same rules as Wordle?

Yes. In terms of the word-guessing puzzle, WordleOff follows Wordle’s rules to a tee. You get 6 tries to guess a 5 letter word. Each guess reveals valuable information in the same color scheme (green, yellow, grey) as Wordle. Not only that but the guesses also need to be logical words.

However, the fundamental difference between WordleOff and Wordle is that WordleOff is a multiplayer game. That means you will see multiple grids on your screen, each corresponding to a unique player. You can add up to 16 people in a session.

In WordleOff, you can see the letters of only your guesses. After each set of tries, WordleOff will reveal the places of interest (color-coded) of your friend’s guess, without revealing the actual letters themselves (refer to the image below).

What is God Mode in WorldeOff?

But what if one player is able to guess the word way before the other players? What happens then?

In that case, the lucky player enters the “God Mode!”. Let’s say player A guessed the word correctly on the 3rd try. Player A can then see all of Player B’s guesses (both previous and upcoming).

This makes the game more fun since Player A can then add more pressure by telling the other players that he can see their guesses.
