Wordle strategies usually involve a strong start to the game, like words that contain the most common letters in the alphabet. Those are, after all, the ones that can give you the most information. But there are days when even though you managed to find a couple of letters from the answer, you’re still feeling stuck.

If today you found an “S” followed by a “T” somewhere in your word, check out the list below for some ideas of what you can try next.

The list contains “ST” in all possible places in the word, from beginning to end. But if you know that the “S” is followed by the “T” in your word, you should also know exactly where these two letters are, which means the actual list for you is shorter.

A possible strategy would be mixing the most common vowels (“A,” “E,” “O”) with common consonants like “L,” “P,” and “R.” And, as usual, keep in mind that Wordle will never pick a plural form as the word of the day, so beware of those “S” at the end of words.

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.
