A list to help with your daily game.

Wordle is a fast-paced, uncompromising game. Many players have fun in less than ten minutes, and a new secret word emerges every night at midnight.

Its simple nature is perfect for exercising vocabulary, using it to have fun with friends, and betting to see who can find the correct answer in fewer tries or in less time.

To find the secret answer quickly, it is possible to use a sequence of words in rapid succession, no matter what they reveal. Each word tests a letter totally different from the ones that were tested before, without repetitions. Once you’ve reached the final attempts, the chances of having found all the letters present in the correct answer are very high, so it will just be a matter of arranging them in the correct order. It’s risky when the correct answer has repeated letters, but it’s the fastest way because you don’t have to think about which words to use. Just prepare list beforehand, such as: “FAINT,” “CHEVY,” “SWORD,” and “PLUMB.”

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.
