Wordle has players guess five-letter words until they find the one that was secretly chosen as the correct answer. The only hints that are given come from the letters used in the previous guesses. And if the player cannot guess the word correctly in up to six attempts, the game ends in defeat.

Despite the challenge itself, one of the most interesting parts of Wordle is its social interaction. A button to share the results at the end of the match, without spoilers, made many players share their experiences on social networks, creating a giant circle of players who every day tell their joys and frustrations.

Most of the time, it’s possible to get the correct answer without much effort, but sometimes players may need some help, especially if they are not used to Wordle’s methods.

There are some tips and tricks that can help any player, while other strategies involve individual preferences. The game itself offers a Hard Mode, in which a player must use all the letters that have been discovered in previous attempts, completely changing which strategies are possible to use. Every player must find the best way to have fun.

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, at least in most cases.
