Wordle is a game that challenges its players every day to discover a different five-letter secret word and the only clues available are the letters used in previous attempts.

Definitely, there are some tips and tricks that can help in general but the first word guessed doesn’t have any clues so many players look for the best way to start the game. A good initial guess can bring victory in a few attempts. On the other hand, a wrong initial word and you may have to use more tries than expected.

The ideal way to start guessing is to use words that have the most common letters, as you don’t know what the secret word is. The most common vowels in English are ‘A’ and ‘E’ and the most common letters, in general, are ‘R’ and ‘T’, so some of the best words to start Wordle are ‘CARES’, ‘ARISE’ and ‘SLATE’. In addition to owning these letters, they are also occupying positions that might be the correct ones for many answers, which increases the chances of the letters in Wordle turning green after guessing them.
