Thanks all. Updated the list.

### mgiuffrida commented Mar 26, 2022

@maxspero I don't see Squaredle in the list yet :-/ (it's different from Squardle and squareword)

Do you consider it too dissimilar from Wordle to list here?

### maxspero commented Mar 26, 2022

@mgiuffrida Isn't this just Boggle? I don't see the similarity to Wordle beyond the name and paste-able score.

### mgiuffrida commented Mar 26, 2022 • edited

@maxspero It has some key differences from Boggle that make it more fun IMO, but yeah, the fundamental gameplay is different from Wordle's so that's fair! Either way, thanks for maintaining this list.

### maxspero commented Apr 6, 2022

Updated, thanks all. @PelleNyren thanks for the catch. @mgiuffrida I added Squaredle. I figure if Heardle makes the cut then this one should as well.
