While we all delight in knowing that Wordl was created by Josh Wardle as a gift to his girlfriendwe can also provide some “Aaawwwwww”s towards Nerd, created by a father and his teenage children. Richard Mann was driving his daughter home from a hockey game and got the idea while stuck in traffic!

Maybe the best thing about math Nerd is how unlikely it seems that it should be possible, and yet how very satisfying it is to complete it successfully. Here, instead of letters, you guess numbers and mathematical symbols to correctly match the simple arithmetic of the day.

The sum consists of eight elements, one of which is an equals sign and the rest are the numbers 0 through 9, plus, minus, multiply and divide. In six tries, it seems utterly impossible to deduce the right combination, and yet I’ve never missed a thing in the months of playing.

It turns out that with the Wordl-like clues (in this case, purple for correct but in the wrong place, green for correct and in the right place), you can find your way to a total in a very satisfying way. Most of the time, I complete these in three or four rounds, and I never feel too light about it.

I recommend having a starting sum, just as you might have a starting word for the letter-based variants. Mine is “1 + 8 / 2 = 0 5”. (The game would never have a zero in front of such a number in its actual solution, but it does get me five unique numbers along with two symbols.) From this you can often make an immediate guess as to whether or not the correct solution will have this type of layout it will be more like “1 0 8 – 9 = 9 9” or “4 * 7 / 1 4 = 2”. 14 games like Wordle to add to your daily routine
