About Word Square
Word square or Square word is a 5x5 word puzzle game. It starts with several letters already placed in the puzzle.
Use the free letters list to create legal words in every row and column.
Word square vocabulary is based on the famous Wordle game, with additional day-to-day words.
When you complete a whole word (horizontally/vertically), there will be an automatic check. If the word doesn't exist in the puzzle, it will be marked red. So unlike Wordle, it doesn't show you the location of specific letters. You will have to come up with a different word.
You have an unlimited number of attempts to solve the puzzle.
Every day a new Square word will be available for playing.
The History of Square word
Square words have existed in ancient times. One of the most famous word square is the Sator square, which dates back to the first century:
S A T O R
A R E P O
T E N E T
O P E R A
R O T A S
As you can see, the same horizontal words also appear vertically. Although this is a true word square, to make the puzzle harder and more fun, we use double word squares, a variant of the original square word, which have different words horizontally and vertically.
The complexity of a Square word
Square words are hard to create. Try creating a 3x3 word square and see for yourself. Luckily, we have computers for doing so, which make the task much easier. Nowadays, a legal 10x10 word square is considered to be almost an impossible mission, and no one has ever succeeded in doing it.
