Wordle is a simple game that entertains many players every day as they try to keep their scores high or just have fun in their spare time. But he can surprise his players from time to time.

Each day a new word is chosen as the secret word and this makes certain challenges more difficult than others. When very common words are the correct answers, it is easier for the player to come up with them, as they are easier to remember. Words that are more difficult to appear in everyday life have an extra barrier that needs to be overcome.

A very common strategy for players who are already a little more used to the game is to use the two initial attempts to test all the vowels and then find out which ones are in the correct answer. Words with many vowels like ‘AUDIO’ and ‘ADIEU’ work very well in this scenario.

It is possible, however, that no letters will become colored after using this strategy if the correct answer has no vowels. In this case, it is a good idea to look for words that have ‘Y’, as there is a high chance that words without vowels have this letter.

If you happen to use your first attempts and realize that the correct answer has no vowels, here are some five-letter words without vowels, sorted alphabetically so you’ll have less work to do with filtering your choices by the letters you’ve already eliminated.
