Wordle game help: 5-letter words with ‘A’ and ‘T’

At the very least, you know where these two can't be.

Screengrab via Wordle

Solving the Wordle and the alternative versions inspired by it has become an essential part of the day for many players all over the world. Each day, the game will pick a different five-letter word, which must be guessed in up to six tries. There are no clues but the letters themselves, changing colors after each guess and indicating whether they are in the word or not.

If you have been playing Wordle for a while, you’ve probably found or developed a strategy that could help guarantee a win. But some words are trickier than others, and you might get stuck with a couple of yellow boxes after your first guesses. To figure out where to go next, one thing that can help is look at all possible combinations. So, if you found that your word has the letters “A” and “T” in it, but you don’t know what to guess now, you can look at the list below.

To narrow down the list, you will need to use all the information you have already figured out. Even if you don’t know exactly where they are, knowing that there are an “A” and a “T” means that, at the very least, you know one place where they can’t be. For example, if you guessed “ZETAS” and those two letters came out yellow, look for words that don’t have a “T” in the middle and don’t have an “A” as the fourth letter. The answer to the Wordle will also never be a plural form, so you should avoid those in case you’re running low on guesses.

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).
