Wordle may seem like an easy game, but even veteran players need some strategies if they want to secure victory each day to keep their win streaks high.

There are tips and tricks that can help any player, but it is possible that after some time more solid strategies will be needed.

The most consistent way to beat Wordle each day is to use words that narrow down as many possibilities as possible for the next guesses. With over 12,000 possible answers, the best words to guess first are the ones that can get that number down to hundreds.

Using words that contain common letters is the most promising as we don’t know what the correct answer is at first. Words like “SLATE”, “CARES” and “ARISE” are great for having letters like the vowels “A” and “E”, and the consonants “R” and “S”.

An additional tip is to use your second try with a word that has the letter “Y” in the fourth position, such as “PHONY”.
