In Squardle, the game of the Gods, pieces are moved based on the roll of six-sided dice, and players can choose from one of several different strategies. The results depend heavily on both luck and strategy, so gameplay can be very unpredictable. I had my doubts going into this game as I have always preferred strategy games that rely more on thinking than luck alone, but once I started playing I quickly discovered that this would not be one of those games.
How does it work?
Players take turns guessing words. If a player can’t guess the word, he or she places an X on the board, and the player guesses how many letters are in the word. The person that wrote down the word sets the number of letters in his or her own word.
For example, if a player writes c, and the next person can’t guess it, he’ll write an X. If he’s pretty sure it’s three letters long, then he’d place two Xs at two corners of his board (each worth 1 point) and three in another corner (worth 3 points). Then when it’s their turn again they’re allowed to put a letter on their board without ending their turn.
What is my ROI on Squardle?
I first downloaded Squardle a couple of months ago and I was quite frankly completely lost. I had seen other language learning tools before but never learned any of them, because it seemed impossible to memorize hundreds of new words in another language. But after about two weeks on Squardle, I picked up the vocabulary for literally 100s of Spanish words, my spoken confidence skyrocketed, and I have now begun conversing with native speakers on a regular basis. So while it is absolutely true that at times Squardle broke my brain and threw me into feelings of incredible frustration, it also fixed my brain in an unbelievably beneficial way!
Where can I find more information about the game?
I didn’t know what to expect when I signed up for the Squardle Broke My Brain Facebook game. I thought it would be a fun pastime, but I had no idea how addictive it would turn out to be. It also surprised me that with no time limit, I could play an unlimited number of rounds. I played often and quickly started to notice my brain adapt and learn.
Like any game, Squardle has its ups and downs. While it certainly tests your skills of strategy and spatial awareness, it also can be frustrating when you find yourself unable to beat a high score. However, to me that wasn’t enough to make me quit playing; instead, it made me want to play more so I could get better at the game. And if you’re anything like me then you’ll likely do exactly that! So if you’re looking for a challenging, addicting social-based puzzle game then look no further than Squardle. You might break your brain… but only for awhile!

I played against Squardle in the finals and he broke my brain. He made my game so complicated, I never knew where I was supposed to go. But I won anyway. I’m going to take you through the match, with step-by-step instructions on how you can also beat Squardle when you’re playing against him. Hopefully, this will be helpful information for any of you who happen to be his next opponent.
First of all, you have to know when to give up and accept defeat. You can play chess till you’re blue in the face, but there’s no way you will ever beat a grandmaster with only six pieces on each side. When it gets that ridiculous, it’s time to take a loss and move on with your life. If Squardle spends more than 15 minutes thinking about his turn and he still hasn’t made any moves by then (he spent 30 minutes on move 13 against me), then that’s when you need to concede defeat and think about how you’ll improve your game so that next time Squardle won’t wipe out most of your team with 5-pieces left against his 1-piece.
