Capital Region Bills Fan Creates Bills-Themed Wordle Game Hurdle
It seems everyone is playing the game Wordle. It's a simple game that has you picking a five-letter word and trying to figure out what word they are looking for in just a few guesses. A die-hard Buffalo Bills fan has created his own version of the game that only has to do with his favorite team. He calls it Hurdle and all of Bills Mafia is encouraged to play.
What is Hurdle?
Much like Wordle, you are to guess a five-letter word, in the beginning, to try to figure out the word. However, in this version, the words are only associated with the Buffalo Bills. It could be anything to do with the team. If you have a letter correct but in the wrong place, it turns red. If the letter is correct and in the right place, it turns blue. When you get the word correct, the letters all turn blue and red Zubaz stripped. You can play once a day and the game resets every night at 7. Click HERE to play.
Who Created Hurdle for Bills Mafia?
His name is Hans Hanson and he's a Capital Region software engineer. He actually helps manage the largest Bills Backers Bars in the area which is McGeary's Irish Pub in Albany. According to WIVB, it took him about a week to create the game. He is open to suggestions of words too. Just DM him on his Twitter account. He says he already has about 150 words ready to go.
Are There Any Words Off-limits?
Actually yes. Hans has a great sense of humor and admits that the word "BRADY" does not exist in Hurdle. Also, "RANCH" because everyone knows that the only thing that goes on chicken wings is blue cheese.
