Wordle is simple and fun. But it’s not always an easy game.

Players are given new secret five-letter words every day to discover. But they must do it in a maximum of six attempts and the only hints are available from the letters of words that have already been used before.

Wordle’s rules are easy to understand and a beginner can quickly get the hang of it. Some tips and tricks are always useful for any type of player, but there are especially more difficult cases.

The two main reasons a Wordle match is harder than average lay in the secret word. Whenever it is an unusual word that is not used much in the player’s daily life, it will be more difficult for it to come to mind when guessing. In addition, words with repeated letters are particularly difficult to find, since to find that the word has a repeated letter, that letter must appear repeated in the guessing attempts and one of its positions must be correct because only then will that letter will be both in color indicating correct position and incorrect position.
