As the comic XKCD put it, I’m in the “control group” for Wordle, having never given the game a try, and I must admit to continuing confusion as to just what all of those green and yellow boxes mean as colleagues post their achievements in my Twitter feed. The folks at Squirrel Monkey have come to my rescue, not only explaining what the game is, but translating it back in time as it would have existed as a computer game in the 1980s. Fans of the game will particularly appreciated the integrated feature allowing you to publicly share your score in a pre-social media world. Trigger warning: the sound of a disc drive grinding and a dot-matrix printer may induce strong feelings of nostalgia in viewers.
