Mini Nerdle Game: How to Enable and Play It

Nerdle has been the recent breakout game on the internet inspired by Wordle. Described by its creators as a Wordle for math nerds, the game presents you with 8 columns 6 guesses where you have to guess the daily equation. Just like Wordle, you get color-coded hints to your guesses which you can use to get the answer right. But 8 columns can be daunting for new users and younger math fans, so the creators have added a mini Nerdle in the game as well. Here’s all you need to know about it. 

What is mini Nerdle?

Nerdle has an easy mode and this mode is called mini Nerdle. In this mode, the game presents you with 6 columns and 6 guesses which makes it much easier. You will need to guess an equation with a maximum of 4 numbers as at least one of the spaces will be taken by the ‘=’ and the second one will be taken by an operator, thus making the game of guessing and forming equations quite easier. This is also a great way to jog your brain before you jump into the normal version of Nerdle.
