Wordle is a game created by Josh Wardle for his wife who loves word games. And it was pretty clear that a lot of other people like this kind of game too, as their game got so popular with the push of social media that it was bought by the New York Times.

Its premise is simple, players need to find out what the secret word of the day is, every day. The vast majority of correct answers are common words, but sometimes Wordle can surprise you with a slightly more unusual choice of answer.

To discover the secret word of the day, Wordle players developed all sorts of different strategies. Some even created programs to play the game and statistically analyze the results. The result of this is a great variety in the way Wordle is played.

Some of the most common strategies are to start with words with a lot of vowels to quickly eliminate a myriad of options. Other players prefer to use as many letters as possible so that their attempt looks like an anagram, which is risky if the right answer contains repeated letters.

No matter how you choose to play, you’ll probably need a little help every now and then. If you’ve spent your time and only found that the secret word starts with ‘G’ and ends with ‘R’, here are some five-letter words starting with ‘G’ and ending with ‘R’, sorted alphabetically so you’ll have less work to do with filtering your choices by the letters you’ve already eliminated.
