Wordle is a game where players need to discover a secret word before their six attempts run out. Although you can play for as long as you want, there is a daily time limit, as at midnight of each day the puzzle resets, and a new answer is chosen.

The biggest difficulty is that the hints only start to appear after the first word is guessed, because just like in the Mastermind game, Wordle uses colors to demonstrate whether the letters of each word are included in the correct answer or not, including their positions.

Because of this fact, many players seek to understand the best word to guess first when playing Wordle. This first moment where there are no hints can be approached in several different ways. While some players may simply want to use some of their favorite words, others may want to search for words that will grant more chances of winning.

One of the best options involves trying to start with words that use the most common letters in equally common positions. The most common vowels are “A” and “E,” and some consonants are “S,” “R,” and “L.” Words like “SLATE,” “ARISE,” and “CARES” are great options for starting a safe game of Wordle.
