If you’re one of the three million people around the world playing Wordle, chances are you know about some of the other online games that have spun off from the original version.
For example, there’s a game specifically for Harry Potter fans called Hogwartle; one for Taylor Swift’s Swifties called Taylordle; one for geography nerds called Worldle; and one for players who enjoy cursing called Sweardle. There’s also a Spanish-language version of Wordle in case you were missing your Ñs.
One of the newest versions of the game is Heardle – for music aficionados. The game gives players six chances to “Name that Tune,” based on one-second clips of a song. Each round will allow another second of the song to be played. The maximum amount of the song you can hear, of course, is the first six seconds.
After each round, players can make a guess at the title of the song by searching through the game’s database. Or they can simply skip the turn at guessing and go to the next round. Like Wordle, Heardle only allows players to play the game once a day.
Spoiler alert: I was hoping to get something easy like a Selena song or maybe Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito” during my first attempt, but Heardle had different plans for me Wednesday evening (April 20) and stumped me with a Harry Styles track.
I couldn’t find an archive for past Heardle games, but apparently someone created a Spotify playlist that adds new songs daily. Based on the list, there have only been a couple of the Latine songs featured on Heardle in the past, including Cardi B’s “Up” and Camila Cabello’s “My Oh My.” Add some Bad Bunny and Anitta to the mix and Heardle just might start breaking the charts.
