Airportle is almost like Wordle, but in this game there is more than one guess, i.e. 6 guesses, but the hidden word each day is a three letter IATA airport code, like LAX for Los Angeles or ORD for Chicago O' Hare. After the first guess, players will see the letters of their choice highlighted in one of three colors:
- Green if the writing is correct and in the correct position;
- If the letter appears in the airport code but in a different location, it will be highlighted in yellow.
- And gray if the letter does not appear in the code.
If a player fails to decode within six attempts, they lose that day's game.
