Wordle gathers many players in the task of discovering a secret word every day. Each player has six chances to get it and the only clues are the letters of the previous words.

The ease of sharing the results of games without spoilers on social networks was largely responsible for the popularization of Wordle among Internet users.

Many players have already tried to study the best ways to play Wordle to achieve success more consistently. Some of these studies focus on choosing the best word to guess first. Words like ‘CARES’ and ‘ARISE’ have some of the most common letters to be seen in Wordle answers in good positions, so it’s very likely that at least some letters will turn yellow or even green in these cases.

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.
