The web-based word game Wordle remains hugely popular, but new for 2024 comes an addictive variation for colour geeks. Hexcodle challenges users to guess the hex code of a given colour.

The game is simple. Each day, you're presented with a colour and have to guess the the hexadecimal colour code used to render it in web design. Like in Wordle, you have five guesses. The colour for the hex code that you enter will appear on the right, and you receive hints after each try to tell you how close you are to the right code (for more on the mechanics of colour, see our guide to colour theory).
