Wordle challenges its players to guess specific five-letter words. Every day the correct answer changes and players are given six guesses to guess correctly.

The only hints available appear after the first attempt, using the letters of the word to say if they are present in the answer and what their possible positions are.

This fact causes many players to assign a high value to the first word guessed, at which time there is no hint at all.

The search for the best word to guess first in Wordle takes players to many different places. While some prefer to start the game with words with the most vowels, others look for more efficient ways to win the game.

Starting with words like ‘SLATE’ and ‘CARES’ increases players’ chances of finding the correct answer, on average, as they are words that contain many letters common to Wordle’s answers.

All the words on this list are accepted by Wordle and will give you more clues as to which letters are present or not in the word of the day until you get it right.

Another good tip to get it right as early as possible is to find which other vowels are present in the word of the day to narrow down your options. 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.
