Guess the 5 letter Tamil word/phrase within 6 attempts
- a game similar to the English game, Wordle. In this
Tamil game, the quiz words / phrases are taken from
Thiruppugazh songs stored in mymuruga.com.
To ease the quiz, the vowel sounds (pronounciation key) used
in the quiz word would appear above the game grid. These denote
the sound of how each letter in the quiz word is pronounced.
If the quiz word is "திருத்தணி", the pronouciation vowel letters
shown above the grid is:
Here the letter "." denotes the Tamil consonant: த். Wherever the
Tamil pure consonant comes (ஒற்றெழுத்து), the dot (.) will appear.
Each guess must be a valid 5 letter word or phrase. The quiz word
can be a single word (ex: ஆறுமுகன்) or a phrase which is a combination
of more than one word (ex: அருள்பாலா). Hit the enter button to submit.
As we know "Velum Mayilum Thunai", following two buttons help you in
Clicking "Mayil" will show this Game instruction.
Clicking "Vel" will bring up the Clue. You can either view the lyrics
or listen to the Thiruppugazh, sung by Guruji & Team (if audio available).
The audio plays in the background, and it will stop at the
moment you press the letter on the keyboard.
The keyboard below the game grid is used to input each letter.
The letter will automatically convert to proper consonant per
the vowel sound for the letter. If the word has a vowel letter,
just the vowel is shown in the grid.
After each guess, the color of the tiles will change to show how
close your guess was to the word.
Green - CORRET letter in CORECT position
Yellow - CORRECT letter in WRONG position
Yellow Black - Some letter in that Consonant series is in the word
Black - NO such letter in the word
Few words, not starting with proper letter (ex: வுடனாரும், யருள்பாலா) will be
accepted only as உடனாரும், அருள்பாலா in this game. Due to Tamil grammar rules,
those words (ex: வுடனாரும், யருள்பாலா) appear in Thiruppugah like that, but for this
game those are accepted only as உடனாரும், அருள்பாலா. Similarly some words end in
different letter (ex:ஞானஅருட்). This would be taken as ஞானஅருள்.
Pressing DEL key deletes the letter.
Pressing ENTER key submits the word and validates.
