The short answer is that we weren’t prepared to paraphrase Taylor Swift’s song “Are You Ready For It.” We’re alluding to Taylordle’s demise when we say that. The Taylor Swift-themed Wordle game that was formerly available at www.taylordle.com is no longer available.
What happened to Taylordle?
The Holy Swift podcast hosts Krista Doyle, Kelly Doyle, and Jessica Zaleski developed Taylordle, which was released in January 2022.
The rules of Taylordle were the same as those of Wordle as they appeared in The New York Times. Without any prior hints, players had to correctly guess the five-letter word of the day in no more than six attempts. The only distinction between the two games was a subtle hint to the singer of “Reputation” in Taylordle’s word choice.
The game’s creators announced the sad news on Twitter on June 26. They stated that they had to shut it down owing to time constraints and a lack of words. “Hey, everyone. Taylordle is not our full-time job, as most of you are aware. Therefore, there aren’t many appropriate phrases we haven’t already used in the past five to six months, “read the tweet.
The website for Taylordle would now redirect to the Lilith Fund, the tweet continued.
Hey y’all. As most of you know, Taylordle is not our full-time job and there are only so many valid words we haven’t already used in the past 5+ months.
For this reason, we are directing the site to @lilithfund until further notice to help support abortion rights in TX. https://t.co/SVAoT6MaHL

Taylor has previously expressed support for The Lilith Fund, established in Texas, and helps raise money for women who require abortions in the state. She used Twitter to express her opinions after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.
I’m absolutely terrified that this is where we are – that after so many decades of people fighting for women’s rights to their own bodies, today’s decision has stripped us of that. https://t.co/mwK561oxxl

There are updated iterations of Taylordle, although the words have additional letters.
There are still alternate versions of the game available even though the original Taylordle has stopped down.
Users can still use their Taylor expertise on www.wordlewebsite/taylordle and www.wordle-unlimited.io/taylordle daily. The main drawback is that these games need players to predict terms with somewhere between four and eight letters because there aren’t many Taylor-related five-letter words accessible.
Although some Swifties have been tweeting links about these new games, they don’t appear to be as well-liked as the original Taylordle.
