Combine Wordle with Geoguessr and you have a new daily fixture: Wheredle

The permutations in the Wordle formula continue – the other day I wrote about cloudle (opens in new tab), where you guess the weather forecast for five days in a city somewhere in the world. A recent version of Wordle for movie buffs (opens in new tab) became a daily favorite, and last week someone did Wordle works in Minecraft (opens in new tab).

Today I have another Wordle-style daily puzzle game for you, this one with a geographic theme that is sure to appeal to fans of the long-running game. Geoguessr (opens in new tab). Is called Where (opens in new tab), and every day shows the Google Maps street view of a location in the United States. Your challenge is to find out what state you are in. You can use the navigation arrows to move up and down the streets and click and drag to move the camera as you try to find clues on signs and stores, recognize landmarks or as the game suggests, discern the “vibes” of the location.

Like another location-based Wordle-like game, World (opens in new tab), Wheredle will give you hints if you get it wrong, displaying directional emojis to help you get closer to your next guess. You have six guesses in total, after which the correct state is revealed.

Currently, only the 50 US states are part of the daily puzzle game, but that could change. Developer Amber Sahdev told me via email that Wheredle originally used the entire world, which made the solution very difficult considering the majority of users were from the United States. “But recently I’ve seen a significant number of users logging in from the UK, Canada and Australia, so I’m thinking about making it global or adding a country-of-origin-specific mode,” he said.

And if you like Wheredle, you don’t have to stop there. We’ve got you covered if you’re looking for even more the best games like Wordle (opens in new tab).
