Why Was Digits Ended By The NYT?

We don’t know. There’s not been a reason for Digits being ended. Presumably, it’s because it didn’t catch fire in the same manner that Wordle did.

Whatever the reasons, we had a lot of fun playing Digits over its lifespan and hope you had fun too. Players accessing the game are now told it’s no longer available and directed to other games in the NYT’s library.

Final Digits Answers (August 7, 2023)

Here are the answers and calculations to the 08/7/23 Digits puzzle:

TargetCalculations
5510 + 11 = 11
2 + 3 = 5
11 x 5 = 55
17325 x 7 = 175
11 – 9 = 2
175 – 2 = 173
2463 x 4 = 12
12 x 20 = 240
240 + 6 = 246
32820 + 15 = 35
35 + 6 = 41
41 x 8 = 328
42423 x 19 = 437
9 + 3 = 12
25 – 12 = 13
437 – 13 = 424

How Digits Worked

Compared to some simpler games, like Wordle, Digits looks complex and even intimidating. It’s really simple though. Each challenge consists of five puzzles to solve. A puzzle is a target number, with players given six integers to get to the target number. The numbers can be added, subtracted, multiplied and divided, but only to reach other integers. There’s no decimals, negatives or fractions allowed.

The target numbers get incrementally higher (and therefore more challenging). The first is between 50-100, the second 100-200 and so on, with the final challenge usually being between 400-500. Typically, the challenges can be solved in two, three or four moves. Some take five but these are quite rare.

Players are rewarded with stars as they play. Getting the target perfectly earns players three stars in that puzzle; getting within ten of the target grants two stars; and getting within twenty five grants one star. With five puzzles released each day, there’s 15 stars up for grabs.
