Wordle is a game that continues to attract people for its simplicity and shareability. Every day, many players post their Wordle results for the day on their social media accounts, and often their impressions and strategies are also present.

It’s common sense that starting off by guessing words with lots of vowels works well to narrow down the list of possible words. However, for those who are tired of always starting with the same word or who simply want to try something new, there is a word that most of the time should reduce the number of possibilities to a maximum of a few hundred options. That’s quite a lot considering the huge list of possibilities before the first try.

The word “SLATE” has some of the most common letters in the English language, and even if you can’t find the letters of the correct answer with this attempt, it will still be useful in letting you know which letters are not present. That’s very relevant information, especially when using a list of words to increase your chances of finding the right one.

Other players prefer to use words they like or have come to know recently. In these cases, it is only necessary to keep in mind that you shouldn’t start with a word that contains repeated letters. That way players can get more out of their attempts.

Beware of words that may have repeated letters, and don’t forget to try words you already know first, since Wordle tends to choose more common words as the right answer, at least in most cases.
