In the web game Subwaydle, you have six chances to properly guess a subway trip with two transfers. Every guess in Wordle must be a real word, and every guess in Subwaydle must be a real subway ride one may take beneath New York City. This only applies, of course, if all of the trains are running normally. If a rail line is on the route but not in the right place, it will be indicated as yellow, if it is on the route but not in the right place, and if it is on the route and in the right place, it will be indicated as green. A quick pit stop at a subway bar is not a part of any journey.
The game was created by Sunny Ng, a New York City-based software designer. He is a staunch advocate for public transit and has developed a real-time subway map and a service tracker for the network using his computer skills. Though Ng may not have received a seven-figure payment from The New York Times' recent acquisition of Wordle, the city's transit experts like playing Subwaydle.
