Frequently Asked Questions

1. What's with the Ads?

4 out of 5 dentists agree: ads are annoying! Sadly, after running Phrasle for a year and a half 100% ad free, server costs became a little bit too heavy a burden to bear. Hence, ads were recently introduced. They still don't cover all the costs of running Phrasle, but every little bit helps. Your understanding and support is greatly appreciated!

2. Why did you create Phrasle?

I discovered and was enjoying Wordle, and I introduced my two sons to it. The trouble was that at 9 and 11 years old at the time, they were having a hard time enjoying it. I thought it would be fun to create a similar game for them that was more like hangman or Wheel of Fortune.

3. How does Phrasle work?

Your goal in Phrasle is to reveal all the letters in a hidden phrase. Incorrect guesses count against you, with vowels costing you double. The number of allowable incorrect guesses is determined by the unique letters in the phrase. Unveil the phrase before you run out of guesses to win.

4. Is there a new puzzle every day?

Yes, a new phrase puzzle is available daily. All players are solving the same puzzle each day.

5. Can I share my results?

After each game, you can share your results without revealing any actual letters. This maintains the integrity of the game and prevents spoilers.

6. Do my statistics and progress get saved?

Yes, your statistics and current Phrasle progress are saved as long as you don't clear your web browser data.

7. What happens if I run out of guesses?

If you run out of guesses and lose the game, you can still continue guessing letters for fun. Alternatively, you can reveal the full phrase with a click of a button.
