Anyone ensnared in the Wordle madness should know just how addicting it can get. Ironically, the creator Josh Wardle insists that the players shan’t overindulge in the game, but play it just once a day. The idea is to allow players to savor the experience.
Since the creator opens the door to Wordle only once a day for us, is there any way to play it more than once? Just in case you failed to solve the challenge in one game? Or… in case you really are an incorrigible Wordle addict desperate for more — as many more — Wordles a day as possible?
The answer is… Yes and YES! We have found all the easiest ways to play Wordle more than once a day!
How to Play the Same Wordle More Than Once
There are some days in the Wordle world when lady luck just turns her head away from you as you try to figure out the hidden word. Don’t be shy, we all have had those days (very possible to recur in the future, too!) For all those wishing for more than 6 guesses a day, here are 4 ways to repeat a Wordle challenge until you solve it! (No, DEFEAT is not even a five-letter word, we DODGE!)
1. Play Wordle on various browser
One of the blessings that come with Wordle being a web game is that we play it on various web browsers. Safari, Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Internet Explorer are just the top names among internet browsers. You can start a day’s Wordle afresh on a new browser, which means, if you didn’t manage to solve the Wordle in, say Chrome, just jump to Opera and go to the host page.
When you play on browsers like Chrome, the logged-in account is detected and associated with the current game. When you lose there, you can always jump to a different account or different browser to replay the game. Fake it till you make it, I guess?
2. Play Wordle using different user accounts on the same browser
We willingly spend time on Wordle solving but that bit of extra waiting to load a new browser (or to download one if you don’t have multiple browsers already installed on your device) might end up blowing you up with frustration. That is a struggle of the past because we are about to enlighten you with a hack.
If you log in to your browser with a different account after each game, you can replay the same Wordle as if it was the first game of the day. As many user accounts you have (can log into), is as many takes you get on each game to replay. (Sorry, Safari users, this tip may not be for you, but hang on, we have got you covered as well. All other browser users… You are welcome, by the way!)
Open your browser. To the top-right corner of the window, you will see the user profile icon. Click on the icon.
On the drop-down, you will see a list of user profiles under “Other profiles.” Select any profile and play Wordle again.
You can also add new user profiles by clicking + Add. To complete the process on Google Chrome, you merely have to log into your browser with any valid Gmail id and associated password.
Once your browser has switched profiles, just head straight to the Wordle game page, and you are all set to replay as if it is a fresh game.
Do not forget the “guest profile”— that is another round of Wordle you might want to take on!
3. Incognito Mode on browsers
Incognito mode allows you to lurk on pages that you don’t wish to leave visible footprints on; even though they don’t offer absolute secrecy or privacy, they still do a pretty good job. As things are, Wordle is also fine with the thought. If you flopped your attempt on a browser, switch to the Incognito mode to start the game anew.
Open your Chrome browser. Click on the three dots located at the top-right (next to the user icon).
From the options, select New Incognito window.
Then simply type www.powerlanguage.co.uk/wordle/ in the new Incognito tab to go to the game page and hit enter. You are all set to play.
Incognito mode is a very “Google” term, so, allow me to rephrase. Go “private browsing” on an InPrivate (Internet Explorer) or a Private (Safari, Firefox, Opera, etc) window of your browser by opening the Wordle game page to hone your guessing skills.
More importantly, you can avert the tiny troubles of logging out of a user account or launching another browser. It is also worth noting that all browsers allow private browsing!
4. Play Wordle on different devices
Almost all of us possess more than one smart device–it could be personal and work mobile phone combo, mobile phone and laptop/desktop, mobile phone and tablet/iPad, Android phone and iPhone — device combinations have wide potential. The device doesn’t even have to be yours, borrow your non-Wordler bestie’s device for a round of Wordle if you are that keen! Since the website doesn’t require the player to input any sensitive information to allow access to the game, there is little risk of privacy invasion even if you borrow a trustworthy person’s device.
When you wish to retake a Worde challenge, all you have to do is fire up the browser on a different device and go to www.powerlanguage.co.uk/wordle/ to replay the game. Since it is a web-based game, you can even play it on your smart TV. Isn’t that just wholesome?
5. Play Older Wordles
Losing a day’s challenge or yearning to play older Wordles are both sources of heartache for Wordlers. Not anymore! There are more than 3 ways to play Wordle more than once a day — this covers those who seek to replay a challenge or try a Wordle that has long become history.
One method is to resort to Wordle Archives. We have found 3 Archives that are absolute gems to play older Wordles – one is a matchless fan-made Wordle archive called Wordle Time Machine by Taq Karim. (Find it here.)
Another one is also a stocked-up unofficial fan-made Wordle Archive by Devang Thakkar. And of course, we have also figured out how to play older Wordles through Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine. Find all the methods, including the three we talked about above, at the link right below.
We have also covered the way to change the system time on your PC/mobile phone to sneak your way back and future in time to play older (and unreleased) Wordles.
How to Play Unlimited Wordles (kind-of)
All Wordlers must have sighed in their hearts at least once, longing for an unlimited supply of Wordles so that you can play to your heart’s content every day. No limitations, no quota, just unlimited Wordles. What if we told you that it is actually possible? Sounds too good to be true?
We are not kidding. It is possible to play unlimited wordles all thanks to Reddit user Taq Karim, a Wordle superfan and the creator of the unofficial Wordle archive Wordle Time Machine.

Taq Karim explains that he used “reverse engineering” on Wordle to unlock all the 2,315 stock words on Wordle. That includes all the 200+ old worlds and around 2000 unreleased wordles. Mindboggling isn’t it? While we might not be able to fathom how he managed to accomplish it, playing Wordle from his link cannot get any easier or simpler.
How to play future Wordles
Taq Karim’s archive (honestly, can not give him enough credit for this stellar archive!) has a simple opening page that has a simple Calendar box to set the month, date, and year to our preference. That means, we can not only play older Wordles but set the date to a random date in the future and play that day’s Wordle just like that. It is as easy as it sounds.
As of now, the Wordle repository has 2,315 words. If we do simple math, excluding the 200 over old Wordles, there are still over 1900 unreleased Wordle words (over 5 years, i.e. over 1,900 days’ counts of Wordles) just waiting to be solved. While it might not be an unlimited supply, it is as close to a Wordle Paradise as can we get. Click the link below to learn how to play Wordle on Wordle Time Machine.
We have shown you so many ways to play older and even yet-to-release Wordles. So, you probably won’t run into a Wordle shortage anytime in the foreseeable future! Happy Wordleing!
