IF you're struggling with today's Wordle challenge you're not alone.
Makers say the latest puzzle is "by far the hardest" ever.
The New York Times – who bought the popular game earlier this year – have revealed that only four in ten people have managed to solve the tough test in six turns.
"Based on 111,215 Wordles played today (Friday), only 43 percent of players have solved the puzzle in six turns," the paper said.
"It's by far the hardest puzzle since the bot started keeping records in April, and probably well before that."
Fans of the game who pride themselves on maintaining a series of unbroken daily wins have blasted it as a total "streak breaker".

Wordle burst onto the scene in October 2021 and attracted millions of users worldwide.
Each day, players must guess the same five letter word.
They have six chances and each time letters turn green if they're in the correct place or yellow if they're included in the final world but not in the correct place.
Josh Wardle, a software engineer and former Reddit employee, initially came up with the game during lockdown for himself and his wife.
The New York Times bought it for an "undisclosed price in the low-seven figures".
