Redactle is a daily browser game where the user tries to determine the subject of a random obfuscated Wikipedia article, chosen from Wikipedia's 10,000 Vital Articles (Level 4).
A new puzzle will be available every day at 11:00 AM CDT (16:00 UTC).

How to Play
- Type a word into the input box and press Enter or the Guess button.
- All occurrences of that word will become unredacted in the article body.
- To win, figure out the title or subject of the article.
Tips and Quirks
- Each guess must be one word only (Guessing multiple words at a time will not work).
- Most Punctuation is automatically revealed in the article page. Some punctuation occasionally escapes Redactle's filter and becomes redacted.
- Guesses are case insensitive, and letters with diacritics (é, ü, etc) are considered to not have those diacritics.
- Shift+Enter will attempt to automatically pluralize or singularize your guess. There are certain edge cases (e.g. guessing a nonsense word like "asdf") where this will submit nonsense guesses.
- You will likely encounter some formatting and punctuation quirks. These are a result of stripping away certain characters and elements present in the original Wikipedia article that don't play nicely with Redactle.
- Many common words are automatically revealed for your convenience. The list includes most English prepositions and articles. Guessing these words does not count toward your score.
- Check the Settings menu for configuration options.
Does Redactle collect any user data?
In order to provide global performance stats, Redactle makes note of a user's performance on a given puzzle. The data collected is limited to the user's score and accuracy, and is anonymized.
Redactle does not collect any information regarding a user's actual guesses.
Note: This version of Redactle is an unofficial mirror of the official site to get around SSL certificate issues on the official site and adds a few additional enhancements. It does not include the option to view/contribute to the global statistics.
