Wordle is a simple and fun game where players have to discover a new secret word every day. The way they do this is very simple, they need to guess words until they receive enough information about which letters are present and in which positions of the correct word.

Playing every day brings the perception that there is a possibility of getting it right on the first try, although very rare. But on the other hand, there is the possibility of running out of attempts without being able to hit the secret word, in these cases, the most assiduous players would lose their winning streaks, which is bad for sharing the results on social networks.

The win streak is a way to demonstrate your commitment to the game and your little everyday achievements. By sharing this experience with thousands of people online, many types of relationships can arise. The eternal rivalry of those who have a streak of victories greater than theirs in one day. The excitement of seeing someone who shared the fact that they managed to find the right answer on the last try. Or even the guilty laugh at seeing the sadness of someone who forgot to play for a day.

To keep the pride of the winning streak alive, players may need to reach out for help when the answer seems further away than it should. So if you’ve spent your first few tries and only managed to find out that Wordle’s secret word of the day has the vowels ‘O’ and ‘U’, but don’t know what their positions are, here are five-letter words that have them, sorted alphabetically so you’ll have less work to do with filtering your choices by eliminated letters.

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.
