Wordle is a simple game that, over time, has gathered many dedicated players. Every player is guaranteed a new and different challenge every day. The new secret word must be guessed correctly in up to six attempts, and there are no clues other than the letters of the words used previously.

One of the most outstanding features of Wordle is the possibility to share your results without giving spoilers to other players who have not yet solved the game of the day. To this day, players like to share results and thoughts on how to play the game.

Some like simpler strategies while others like to delve into complex possibilities. There are already statistical models that try to answer the best word to guess first, with some strong candidates being “CARES” and “SLATE.” As the right answer changes every day, there will always be some moment of greatest difficulty, such as when the answer involves repeated letters.

Extra help can come in handy when you’re struggling. Word lists are great for showing the options the player has, without giving an immediate answer.
