Wordle game help: 5-letter words with ‘B’ and ‘A’

A list to help with your daily game.

Screengrab via New York Times

Wordle is a game that has many ways to have fun. Players can challenge themselves or their friends to get the best results or the longest winning streak.

Various strategies can be used for different purposes. Many casual players or players who don’t play every day are used to using words with many vowels in their first attempts, so it is possible to find out which vowels are present in the correct answer and which are not. It’s a way to get guaranteed information with the first two attempts, but it’s not always the best option. Some of these words with many vowels may not even be a correct answer, which makes the dream of getting it right on the first try impossible. There is also the possibility that the correct answer does not contain any vowels, although this is an uncommon occurrence.

When the objective is to find the answer quickly, perhaps in a kind of race between friends, there is a strategy specifically effective, considering that Hard Mode is not on. A list of four or five words with non-repeating letters. That way, no matter the result of each one, all these attempts are already defined and the player doesn’t have to waste time thinking about what to try next. When there are one or two attempts left, there is a good chance that you will already have five colored letters, so you just have to rearrange them as a kind of anagram to find the correct answer.

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.
