A few of these are hard to remember.

In 2022, it is almost impossible to escape Wordle and the several alternative versions inspired by it. In Josh Wardle’s word game, now owned by the New York Times, players need to guess a different five-letter word each day. The daily word is always the same for all players, but there are no clues except the letters themselves—after each guess, letters turn green if they are in the right place, yellow if they are in the wrong place, and gray if they are not in the word at all.

Most players have already found or developed their winning strategies by now, from finding all the vowels first to creating one big anagram. And while that can almost guarantee you will find the daily word, even the best players can get stuck sometimes. With Wordle No. 327, for example, you may have found the letters “U” and “N” near the end of the word. If that is the case, we came up with a list that will probably help you get some inspiration.

There are not many words that fit the criteria, but you will still need to narrow down the list to find your answer. The first thing to do is check the other clues you found on your own, like letters turned gray or yellow in your previous guesses. Then, cross-check that with the list above. Knowing if there is another vowel in the word or if “U” is the only one could also help.
