A list to help with your daily game.

Wordle is a fun and fast-paced game. Players need to guess words before their guesses run out. It’s so simple, there are practically no bugs in its gameplay.

Players often try to guess which vowels are present first, in order to narrow down the following options. When using such a strategy, it is important to know words with many vowels, so you don’t have to spend more than two attempts to test all vowels. Also, having the letters ‘A’ and ‘E’ on the first try means more chances of finding any green or yellow letters, as they are the most common vowels in English.

The strategy above can be quite practical and simple to use, but it will hardly make the player discover the correct answer on the first try—something which rarely happens, but which is possible and fun. With that in mind, the initial use of words like ‘CARES’ and ‘ARISE’ might get you a hit on the first try someday.

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.
