Wordle is a game that entertains countless players every day. Each puzzle gives players six attempts to guess the secret word until midnight, when a new word will be chosen for the next day.

Although it seems very simple, sometimes Wordle can be really challenging. It all depends on each player’s vocabulary and familiarity with the word that is the right answer for that day, as well as which words are guessed first.

To be less dependent on luck, many players study strategies to help them arrive at the correct answer more efficiently. Such strategies are quite different and cannot be used in the same Wordle game. For example, when trying to use all vowels in the first attempt, it will not be possible to try to use all the letters of the alphabet before the last attempt. Of course, there are general tips and tricks that can help in many different situations.

To use the vowels strategy, you need to know some words with mostly vowels. By the third attempt, the player will already know which vowels are present in the correct answer, greatly reducing the list of remaining options. Be aware that there may be repeated letters in the secret word when using this approach.

The strategy of testing as many different letters of the alphabet makes Wordle a kind of anagram game, as the player must know which letters are present in their entirety, and just need to adjust their positions. Most of the time it will be easy to guess the final answer, but repeated or interchangeable letters can make some games difficult.

Regardless of the approach chosen, players may need help at times. If you found that the right answer starts with the letters ‘GO’, but you’ve used up most of your guesses, here are some five-letter words starting with ‘GO’, sorted alphabetically to help you figure out the answer.
