Wordle can be a relaxing or challenging game, depending on how players view it. To win, it is necessary to guess the secret word of the day in up to six attempts. The problem is that the only clues are the letters of the words that have been tried before.

Many players just want to pass the time and have fun casually. Wordle’s speed and accessibility make it perfect for this. You can play from virtually anywhere, just by being able to access the New York Times website on both PC and mobile devices.

Other players prefer to take their scores and strategies seriously. You can find great discussions and debates about the best strategies to use when playing Wordle. This type of player usually plays every day to keep their winning streak high.

Some strategies can actually make a player win more consistently. One of the most used is to guess words with most vowels in the first attempts. Finding out which vowels are present quickly helps you decide the next guesses.

Another less common strategy is very useful when prioritizing speed over assertiveness. Just use as many different letters as possible in each attempt so that in the last attempts, the answer is just a matter of reorganizing the information you’ve already found. A string of words that can be used for this is “FAINT,” “CHEVY,” “SWORD,” and “PLUMB.”
