If you’ve been playing Wordle for a while, you have probably developed a strategy that can pretty much guarantee a win. Some of the most popular ones include finding all the vowels first and attempting to transform the word into a sort of anagram. Each day, the goal is to figure out a mystery five-letter English word in six tries or less—the word is the same for all players in the same calendar day, but there are no clues to start.

The letters of each Wordle guess will provide all the clues you need, changing colors to indicate if they’re part of the answer or not.

After a few guesses, however, you might not get as far as you thought you would. Maybe you found a couple of letters and even know where they are, but you need inspiration to figure out your next steps. If that’s the case, with an “I” followed by a “T,” check out the list below.

Cross-check all the information you found on your own, including letters that came out gray, to get to the word most likely to be your answer.
