Since its October 2021 release, Wordle has evolved into a worldwide phenomenon. The word-guessing puzzle is a simple daily challenge where players must guess a different five-letter word in up to six tries and less than 24 hours. There are no clues except the letters in the guesses, which will change colors to indicate if they’re part of the answer or not. And that is combined with a strong social element, allowing players to share their progress on social media, which helps boost its popularity.

Though most days will be easy enough, it is also easy to get stuck. After a few guesses, you might have found a couple of letters and not know what the answer could be. If you found “O” and “D” together in the word, the list below may help.

There aren’t many words, but you will still need to select your next guesses carefully. First, you need to check where your “O” and “D” are. If you know they are together in the word, chances are you know exactly where. Another important strategy is to avoid plural forms because they will never be the answer to the daily Wordle, even though they can be valid guesses.

If you’re still unsure and don’t want to wait until Wordle resets at midnight local time, you can always look up the answer to today’s puzzle (which we update around 12am CT).
