For most longtime players, it won’t take long to find the answer to the daily Wordle puzzle. Every day, the game will pick a five-letter word from the English dictionary for players to figure out within a 24-hour and six-guess limit. There are no clues except the letters in the words, which will change colors depending on their presence and position in the final answer. It’s a format reminiscent of the classic code-breaking puzzle game Mastermind.

By now, you probably have already found or developed a strategy to figure out the word in as few tries as possible. Some of those tips include starting your guesses with a strong word, and one of the most popular strategies involves finding all the vowels first by guessing words that have three or more vowels. That is not the case for all players, though, and there is no word that works the same way every day on Wordle. You may often find yourself stuck after getting a couple of letters right, whether they’re vowels or consonants, and when that happens, you probably need some inspiration to know where to go next.

If the letters that came out green for you are a “P” followed by an “R” right at the beginning of your word, check out the list below for some ideas.

A possible next step after you found these two letters is to find the vowels. Here is a list of vowel-heavy words that should help you. Don’t forget to check letters you already tried before, avoiding those that already came out gray in previous guesses. Also, Wordle will never pick a plural form as the answer to the daily puzzle, so you should avoid those in your last tries.

If you’re still unsure and don’t want to wait until Wordle resets at midnight local time, you can always look up the answer to today’s puzzle (which we update around 12am CT).
