Many of Wordle’s players have gotten into the habit of sharing their daily results via social media. Finding the secret word before the six attempts are over can be both a source of happiness and frustration.

A common strategy Wordle players find using is to start with words with many vowels, to narrow down the possibilities. Still, it’s important to remember that specific answers may contain only one vowel or none at all.

In these cases, it is important to have other ways of thinking since the possibility is high that the answer is a less common word than if it had several vowels.

In these cases it is important to test as many different consonants as possible, some of the most prominent being ‘R’, ‘T’, and ‘N’, as the chances of them being present in the words on average is high.

When finding the remaining letters is very difficult, even after testing these most common consonants, it is important to evaluate the chances that there are also repeated consonants, it is not the most common, but it can happen, and thinking about it can save your winning streak.
