Daily Brontedle


Wordle has taken the world by storm. I love it, so I’ve decided to create my own Brontë inspired Wordle game. I’ll be uploading a new Brontëdle to this page every day at around 12 noon Yorkshire time, so feel free to play along and tell your friends about it.

If you don’t know Wordle, here are the simple rules: a five letter word is hidden away, and you have six attempts to guess it. If a letter turns green it’s in the correct spot, keep it there; if it turns amber it’s in the correct answer but not in the position you had it in; if it turns grey it’s not in the answer at all and you can eliminate it from future guesses.

It’s fun and addictive, and I’ve decided to give it a Brontë twist by uploading my own custom wordle here every day. The twist is that each word will be a Brontë character, or a word connected with the Brontës or a Brontë novel. I may also branch out into other classic literature words, but on days when I do that you will be told in advance.

If you need a clue I will supply one below the link. To ensure that those who don’t want to see the clue don’t stumble across it by accident I’ll be putting the clues in Irish Gaelic (a nod to the Brontës’ heritage) – to get the clue simply type it into Google translate or something similar.

Proper nouns: Some (but not all) daily answers will be proper nouns, such as names of people, characters or places. Unfortunately the game engine doesn’t always recognise proper nouns as a legitimate guess unless it is the correct answer, so keep this in mind when guessing.

Update: I’m sorry for the lack of new Brontëdles lately, my new job at the wonderful Sheffield Cats Shelter has prevented me from updating this page daily as I’d hoped to do. I will now be updating this page regularly again, however, so please do keep popping back here to put your Brontë word knowledge to the test!

Good luck with today’s word and I hope you’ll keep joining me here on this page for another new daily Brontëdle!
