Wordle is an easy game to learn, but many players take the time to master their experience.

Players must guess a five-letter word from a list of over ten thousand possible answers. If they can’t get it right in six tries, they lose. And the only clues are the letters of words that have already been tried before.

As there are no starting hints and players can guess any word, it is natural to study which words are best to guess first. The idea is to think of words that have the most common letters to be found in Wordle answers.

Some of the best options usually have the letter “S” and the vowels “A” and “E.” The consonants “N,” “T,” and “L” are also very common. With this in mind, some of the best words to start a Wordle game are “SAINE,” “SLATE,” “SLANE,” “STARE,” and “SAICE.” Try using them for a few days and see if the game gets easier or harder.

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. 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.
