Are you into sums? Nerdle is for you.

It's similar to Wordle, but with numbers composed into sums.
You can choose an 'easier' mode with 6 squares across instead of 8. Best of luck smile

*Miss Marydoll* ?. Please Miss, I’ve done it in 4 too. Does that mean I go to the top of the class. ?

On yer bike Doodle, I dun it in free.

Those English classes are beginning to pay off !

CraftyGranny Mon 31-Jan-22 22:34:41

Oh, and muse did too also as well

Marydoll Mon 31-Jan-22 22:51:31

Trying to defend myself here, it was my first try. I may watch from the sidelines, in case I embarrass myself! wink

I can't do Wordle or Nerdle, I'm not that way inclined, never have been.
My sister calls me dopey.

Sorry Miss Marydoll, we always did sums in my school blush
Calculations it is.

3! ?
Is actually not being very good at maths an advantage ??

FannyCornforth Tue 01-Feb-22 01:26:26

Like Marydoll I had the correct terminology drummed into me.
The kids were also supposed to know that ‘product’ was the result of two numbers multiplied.
This was something that I often forgot myself!

Good night's sleep has done wonders for the little grey cells.
Mini Nerdle in 3
Big Nerdle in 4

I decided to give it a go, and to my surprise got it in 3. My brain cells are functioning better than I thought grin

muse Tue 01-Feb-22 10:38:58

Well done the 3s.

Was it for mini or big nerdle Blossoming and FannyCornforth??

Shit! I’ll ask for it to be taken down! Sorry! ?

FannyCornforth Tue 01-Feb-22 10:42:31

I can’t post anything without stuff appearing in the background.
Sorry again

muse Tue 01-Feb-22 10:43:12


?I can see your opening line in the screenshot.

FannyCornforth Tue 01-Feb-22 11:01:52

I know! I’ve asked for it to be removed! ?

Blossoming Tue 01-Feb-22 11:04:27

It’s this one muse, I think it’s big Nerdle.

CraftyGranny Tue 01-Feb-22 11:14:07

Phew! ?‍?

CraftyGranny Tue 01-Feb-22 11:23:25

Well, I did the Big One and failed miserably.
That will teach me to show off! But I will try again tomorrow.

muse Tue 01-Feb-22 11:37:38

?Brilliant Blossoming

Nerdle 13 3/6

???????? #nerdle

Much better this afternoon

FannyCornforth Tue 01-Feb-22 12:53:23

Can someone explain please how one can access/ see/ share the simplified coloured squares, with no extra stuff?
As posted above
Thank you!

Blossoming Tue 01-Feb-22 13:32:15

I just do a screen print and crop it. I’m using an iPad. So it gives me that option. If you’re using a phone I don’t know but if expect there’ll be a similar function.

Marydoll Tue 01-Feb-22 13:44:24

There is a button which says Share, it goes to my clipboard and then I can paste directly into my post. No faffing needed.

I have just done my first Nerdle. I usually hate math type stuff but this was fun. Finally Algebra is of some use. Left school over 50 years ago and this is the first time it's been needed.
