Wordle, created by Josh Wardle and now owned by the New York Times, united puzzle fans and word game fans from all over the world. Combining a simple daily puzzle with a strong social media aesthetic, the game quickly became a phenomenon. Each day, players need to guess a different five-letter word in up to six tries—with no clues but the letters themselves, which will change colors after each guess to indicate whether each letter is present in the word.

While you may have already found or developed a good strategy that can guarantee a win, even the best can get stuck in the game sometimes. Maybe you found a couple of letters, but need some inspiration to know where to go from there. If you’re lucky enough to know where some of these letters are, like “CH” at the end, a list like the one below can help.

Perhaps the most intuitive way of narrowing down the list above, when you already have at least two consonants, is to find your vowels. Try one or two vowel-heavy words, prioritizing those that do not have “C” or “H” in them so you can get information on more consonants. After that, cross-check your findings with the list.
