If you're keeping score in the longtime rivalry between Edmonton and Calgary, another point has gone to Edmonton — and this time it's for Wordle scores.

Edmonton was the top-ranked city in Alberta for its Wordle scores, and it has the fifth-best scores in Canada with an average score of 3.92.

However, Calgary isn't far behind its Albertan neighbour, scoring an average of 4.02 and placing sixth in Canada at the word-based game.

Within Canada, Toronto took the top spot with a score of 3.81, followed by Vancouver at 3.84, Ottawa at 3.87 and Montreal at 3.91.

Making up the rest of the list in Canada, ranking below Edmonton and Calgary, were Winnipeg, Victoria, Abbotsford and Regina.

The online game Wordle has taken social media by storm in the last few months — so much so that the New York Times actually bought the game from its creator for a price "in the low seven figures."

The premise is pretty simple. Players have six guesses to find the daily five-letter word. Tiles will change colour depending on whether the letters you guess are right.

Data from Twitter was analyzed to determine just who the smartest cookies in the world are when it comes to Wordle.

Canada ranked as the 17th-best country in the world for Wordle scores, with an average score of 3.90 across the nation.

The top-performing country was Sweden with an average score of 3.72.
