Wordle is a new challenge for players to conquer daily. Players must guess a five-letter secret word within six tries. Win or lose, there is only one attempt per day because a new word is not chosen until midnight.

But a word a day might be too little for passionate Wordle fans. Fortunately, many alternate versions of the New York Times game have a feature or mode that allows players to experiment with finding new secret words as often as they like. The daily mode still exists in most of these versions, as this is the only way all players around the world can share their experiences.

Some of the most famous are Dordle and Quordle. Both use the same standard rules as the original Wordle, with the twist that players have to guess more words at once, so they end up getting more tries depending on how many words they have to guess. The free game mode chooses random words as answers each time the mode is selected.

This style of guessing more than one word at the same time has reached terrifying levels with Duotrigordle, which has 32 simultaneous words to guess.

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.
