Orijinz Daily Q&A

Can you explain the letter colors and what they mean?

Typed in letters are gray. Correct letters are Orijinz blue and incorrect letters are red. Guess what word or phrase matches the origin and type in your answer. If you type in the right answer, you'll see the gray letters animate in beautiful Orijinz blue. If you type in the wrong answer, any correct letters in the right position will turn Orijinz blue, but incorrect letters will turn red, and then erase, so you can keep trying. 

What is Advanced Mode?

In normal game mode, if you guess a word or phrase and your answer is incorrect, Orijinz Daily will erase all the wrong letters but keep displayed in Orijinz blue any letters that happen to be correct and in the right spot. In Advanced Mode, Orijinz will erase all your letters when your answer is incorrect. You get no benefit from lucky guesses!

Can I share my results with others?
A key part of the fun of Orijinz Daily is sharing your results with others, convincing them to play, comparing your results, and discussing the interesting origins of our language. After you play Daily Orijinz your results will display, and you will see a "Share" button. Choose it to share your results. 


What happens when you turn Share time and/or Share number of revealed letters off?

If you prefer not to share your time or the number of your revealed letters, toggle those options off in Settings. You can find settings by clicking the gear icon on the upper right of the screen.

Can I see how other players are doing?

After you play your first puzzle, choose the "See Results" button and you can see the results from other players that have chosen to share them. Enter your name and location (example Steph, San Francisco), and all of your results will automatically be posted to the Orijinz results board as well. 

How do I see my results over time?

On the upper right-hand side of the screen is a small chart icon. Click it to see your overall results for all the Daily Orijinz games you have played.


What is the difference between Orijinz Daily and the Orijinz App?

Orijinz Daily is one free Orijinz every day. It works on your phone, tablet, PC or Mac. The Orijinz App is for your mobile phone or tablet and gives you access to over 1,000 Orijinz cards. The first 15 cards are free and after that you can buy more card packs for as low as $1.99!


You can play single player mode to challenge yourself just like Orijinz Daily, but you can also play with friends and family.  In multiplayer mode, one person reads the origin, and the other players try and guess the matching word or phrase. It is loads of fun as players blurt out their guesses! Try it next time you are with friends and family or at a game night.

To get the iPhone version of Orijinz search for "Orijinz" in the Apps Store or click here. For the Android edition search for "Orijinz" in the Playstore or click here

Is there a way to go back and play a puzzle from an earlier day?

Unfortunately, not.  If you want access to lots more origins, then you need to get the Orijinz  App.

Can we send you feedback or ideas?

Of course, email
