Are you looking to add more games to your daily rotation of Wordle-style puzzles? Or maybe you're looking to work on your chess skills and have fun doing it. Either way, you should check out Boardle. Each day it offers a free chess puzzle that you can solve in a Wordle format.

If you're unfamiliar with Wordle, the idea is simple: You have to guess a five letter word. You get six tries, and after each try, the letters of the word you guessed change color based on how close your guess was to the actual word. If you guessed the right letter in the right spot, then that letter will turn green. If you guessed a letter that was in the word, but not in the right spot, then it will turn yellow. If it wasn't in the word at all then it will turn gray. You can then use that information to inform your next guesses.

This simple game has gone extremely viral, spawning all sorts of variations, and eventually being purchased by the New York Times. And now there is Boardle, a game that combines the fun of Wordle with Chess puzzles from lichess to create a fun way to learn chess.

Give it a try and start improving your chess skills today!
