This country has the best Wordle score in the world



In its short lifespan, Wordle has become a global phenomenon — and now a new study has revealed which country has the best Wordle score in the world.

The word game, which was developed by US-based software engineer Josh Wardle in October last year and later acquired by New York Times for an undisclosed seven-figure sum, sees players try to guess the daily five-letter word in just six attempts.

The study, by word site Word Tips, has found that Sweden is the most efficient country in guessing Wordle, with the average Swede guessing the correct word in just 3.72 tries.

Switzerland placed second, with an average of 3.78 attempts to guess the right answer, while Poland placed third with 3.79.

Belgium and Australia were a joint fourth, with 3.80, Finland sixth with 3.81 and Denmark, Brazil and South Africa tied for seventh with 3.83.

Out of the 49 countries studied, the UK placed at a joint 14th alongside Uruguay and China, with a score of 3.89.

Canada and the US were 17th and 18th, with average scores of 3.91 and 3.92 respectively.

At the bottom of the list were Bangladesh, Kenya and Egypt with 4.24, 4.38 and 4.42 respectively.
