Wordle is a simple game. Players need to guess a five-letter secret word, but there are only six attempts. And the only clues are the letters of words that have already been used before.

Since new words are chosen as the secret word every day, there are days that are easier than others. If the answer is a simple, common word, players are more likely to be able to think of it during the game. If the correct answer happens to be less commonly used, players may have a much harder time.

To avoid defeats and achieve a great winning streak there are some tips and tricks that can help any player. The important thing is not to forget to have fun playing Wordle. There are many different ways to play and each player can find their favorite.
