How Does Wordle Work?

Wordle is a daily word-guessing game now under the New York Times. You get one word that you have to guess within six tries. For each word you put, you’ll be judged based on letters that are relevant to the word of the day. Green means letters exist in the correct position of the word you’re looking for. Yellow letters indicate that you got the correct letter, but it is used elsewhere in that word. Grey means those letters do not exist.

Luckily, the game will track which letters you used by indicating their colors on the on-screen keyboard below. Ideally, you’d want to use letters you haven’t used before so you can then rule out what the word is. The optimal strategy is to open up with a vowel-heavy word.

As an addition to the clues above, start your Wordles with words like AUDIO, PIOUS, or ADIEU. Those words when started with first eliminate 4 of the 5 typical vowels for words. After that, start crafting words around the correct or missing vowels.

A final tip: try not to repeat letters until your final two guesses. The process of elimination will paint a clearer picture if you do need to repeat some.
