A list to help with your daily game.

Wordle is a game that makes its players guess five-letter words in up to six tries. The hard part is the only clues available are the letters of the words tried earlier.

To win the game each player chooses their favorite strategies and can also switch between them. The first words to guess are important, but some more experienced players might get bored of starting the game every day in the same way.

For these cases, there are different strategies that can add some variety without having to resort to one of the more difficult beginnings than using the word ‘CRWTH’.

Trying to turn Wordle into a sort of anagram game can be fun for many players and might be worth a try someday when you’re feeling lucky. Just use trials to test out as many different letters as possible, while leaving only one or two trials to rearrange what was previously found. A good list of words to start using this strategy is as follows:

  • FAINT
  • CHEVY
  • PLUMB
  • SWORD

That way, there are still two attempts left, and there’s a good chance that all the letters of the correct answer are present.

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.
