Wordle game help: 5-letter words with ‘RE’

You will probably need only a part of this list.

Wordle is an internet phenomenon. Launched in October 2021 by Josh Wardle and now owned by the New York Times, the word-guessing puzzle combines a simple daily challenge with a strong and aesthetically pleasing social media element. Each day, the game will pick a different five-letter word, which players then need to guess in up to six tries. The word is the same for all players in the same calendar day, but there are no clues except the letters in the guesses, which change colors to indicate if they’re part of the answer or not.

Most players have found or developed winning strategies for Wordle by now, the most popular being the one where players find all the vowels first. But no strategy works the same way every day, so you may find yourself stuck with a certain letter, or combination of letters, and no idea where to go next. For those days, we can help. Here are some words that have “RE” in them.

You probably found this list knowing that there is an “R” followed by an “E” somewhere in the word, which means you probably also know where both letters are. That already helps narrow down the list. If you found them separately, you can check out words with “E” and “R” instead. Some other useful tips are to avoid plural forms, because Wordle does not pick them as answers, and always cross-check any other letters from your previous guesses, even the ones that came out gray.

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).
