Such a different game to Wordle, but it gives your brain a different workout. Consider Wordle your long, steady state run and then Nerdle being the HIIT workout you (inexplicably) do next.
You're asked to enter a sum of 8 numbers or symbols long… and apart from knowing it has to have some numbers and an equals in there, that's all you get.
It's a great play – plus there's an 'Instant Nerdle' that shows you one line of semi-correct entries in the wrong place… and it's up to you to get it. Lovely.
