Wordle, the popular daily word guessing game is played by millions of users every day.

But the game only gives you one word a day, leaving many players looking for an alternative.

Thankfully, due to its popularity, there are plenty of Wordle spin off games dedicated to a variety of topics like numbers, geography and even Lord of the Rings.

Wordle spin-off games: 11 puzzles to try after finishing today's Wordle - including Nerdle and Crosswordle.

Wordle creator, Josh Wardle, has said that he “loves” the spin offs that his game has created.

To give you something to do after finishing your daily Wordle, we've put together ten of the best Wordle spin off games.

NerdleIf numbers are more your thing then Nerdle is the game for you.

Basically the mathematical version of Wordle, Nerdle has its players work to figure out an equation.

Instead of letters you can use the number, 0123456789 and symbols +-*/=”, but your guess must be mathematically correct.

If you find this version too hard, you change to "mini Nerdle" using the settings icon, which is an "easier mode with six columns”.
