You can now play the Singlish version of Wordle — Word-leh!

by Christabel Tan

Eh you got play Wordle?”

Yes, yes, I do. I too play Wordle every day without fail.

The brainchild of Brooklyn-based engineer Josh Wardle, viral word game Wordle has swept millions off their feet. Many see it as an integral part of their daily routine. I know people who absolutely cannot start their day without flexing their winning streaks on Instagram stories. Okay, we get it. You’re “really good” with words.

But I do have to admit that Wordle is very addictive. It’s an effective concept, and naturally, spin-offs have emerged, including some with a cheeky local twist.

Word-leh! — Guess the five-letter Singlish word of the day

Created by engineer Sha-Mayn Teh, newly-released Word-leh! is a Singlish spin-off that might have Singlish connoisseurs second-guessing themselves.

The same rules apply: you have six tries to guess a five-letter word. The only catch? The game accepts English words, but the final and correct answer will always be a Singlish word. Another key difference is the presence of a dark mode (bless my tired eyes), which the original game lacks.

If regular ol’ words aren’t up your alley, perhaps this will do the trick.

If you’re an avid train otaku, or you simply want to test your knowledge of Singapore’s MRT rail network, we’ve got another locally-made Wordle-inspired game for you. Shut the train doors and strap in, because you’re going to want in on this next game.

Geodle — Guess MRT & LRT stations

Geodle is another spin-off created by Reddit user u/Lifth, and it’s all about guessing MRT or LRT stations. Unlike Wordle or Word-leh!, Geodle requires players to visually map out the rail system. There is no five-letter word rule, and the distance (in kilometres) to the correct answer (or daily location, in this case) will be shown with every try.

Unfamiliar with LRT stations? Have never heard of Kadaloor or Rumbia? Fret not, for there is also an MRT station-only mode.

Mai tu liao! Send the game links to your friends or share them in your family group chat — and watch the chaos unfold.
