About Sweardle

Sweardle was invented as a joke parody of Wordle, using "4 letter" swear words instead of 5. Approximately 50 swear words are in use, intentionally selected to not use overtly racist, homophobic or misogynistic words. Each day a random word is selected from the list, so you may get repeats. Undoubtedly some of the words will offend someone, which is not the goal, but neither will I apologise - you can't visit a swear word guessing game and not expect some offensive terms.

About The Author

The Author of this website wishes to remain anonymous because this really isn't the sort of thing you want to have come up in a future job background check. You can contact me at admin at sweardle.com if there is a problem with the site.


I don't make any money from advertising and the game is completely free to play. If you like it and want to compensate me in some way for my efforts, why not donate to my favourite local charity, Launchpad. Launchpad do excellent work to alleviate homelessness in Reading, UK and any money you can spare them will be much appreciated.

Note, Launchpad are in no way affiliated with Sweardle.


Cookie popups would have made the game more annoying, so I didn't add any tracking or adverts to the site. There are no third party cookies, and the first party cookie is simply recording your progress and previous guesses. Each guess is anonymously logged so that I can get ideas for additional swear words. This also allows me to see the most popular swear words - 13% are fuck, and 10% are shit. The cookie also tracks if I have shown you a one time suggestion to donate to charity. This is not a personalized advert and is shown after playing for 7 days and then never again.
