The word is… PARTY! Today Hasbro, Inc., a global play and entertainment leader, and New York Times Games are working together to bring Wordle to life in a new board game. Inspired by the popular digital version from New York Times Games, Wordle: The Party Game is a brand-new product that delivers classic Wordle gameplay, but now in an all-new way that is perfect for game night with friends and family.
Wordle: The Party Game features the gameplay fans love, but now players must compete in real life to solve the Wordle. In each round, a player designated as the Wordle Host writes down a Secret Word. Just like the original Wordle game, players have six attempts to guess a five-letter word. But in this game, players are competing against others. The fewer tries a player needs, the fewer points they score. The player with the fewest points at the end of the game wins! Best of all, Wordle: The Party Game can be played repeatedly with the included dry-erase Wordle boards and markers. Players can also switch up the gameplay in four different ways to Wordle: classic play, fast, timed, or teams. Wordle: The Party Game makes a fun gift for ages 14 and up.
“Since Wordle burst onto the scene, it’s undoubtedly been a staple in social and pop culture vocabulary,” said Adam Biehl, SVP & General Manager, Hasbro Gaming. “We’re beyond thrilled to work with New York Times Games to bring our gaming worlds together and extend Wordle in new ways.”
Jonathan Knight, head of Games for The New York Times, said: “Wordle truly brought us all together and that’s what makes it so special. With each daily puzzle, we connect with friends and family through social play. At New York Times Games, we’re focused on quality crafted puzzles that everyone can experience together, which is why we’re so excited to team up with Hasbro to bring a fresh new format to the global sensation of Wordle.”
Wordle: The Party Game will be available in North America for purchase in October and for pre-order today at www.wordlethepartygame.com.
