Screengrab via New York Times

Wordle is a simple game for any type of player. The game was so successful when it was released that it didn’t take long to be acquired by the New York Times.

The only major complaint from players about Wordle is the need to have to wait to play more, as only at midnight of each day a new word is chosen to be the right answer for the next day.

But many gamers find some comfort in other versions of Wordle, which allow them to play multiple times. The closest to the original is Wordle Unlimited which uses exactly the same rules and possible answers, but without limiting players to play only once.

Other versions that have become famous and that can please players who want a bigger challenge are Dordle and Quordle, which challenge players to find more than one correct answer at the same time, using the same attempts. Both can be played multiple times with new random answers being generated, as well as having the classic daily mode, which is the same for all players.

Besides them, there are many other versions of Wordle, each one with its specific features, such as those in different languages ​​that use rules close to the original, but in different languages, such as French, Portuguese, Italian, Spanish, and much more. And games that focus on different themes, like Squirdle about Pokémon, Fortle about Fortnite, Hogwartle about Harry Potter, and so on.

All the words on this list are accepted by Wordle and will give you more clues as to which letters are present or not in the word of the day until you get it right.

Another good tip to get it right as early as possible is to find which other vowels are present in the word of the day to narrow down your options. Beware of words that may have repeated letters and don’t forget to try words you already know first, since Wordle tends to choose more common words as the right answer.

These tips should help you complete your latest Wordle task.
