How Does Wordle Work?

Wordle is a daily word guessing game where you have six tries to find what the word of the day is. With each attempt at a word, the game will give you clues based on the letters you used. Green letters indicate you put down the correct one and it’s in the correct position for the answer. Yellow letters mean it’s correct, but not in the right position. Grey means the letter(s) do not exist in the word of the day.

Because of this, you want to rule out as many letters as possible for each guess. The best way to start off a Wordle puzzle is to use vowel-heavy words like AUDIO, ADIEU, or PIOUS. From there, you can use words that contain the rest of the vowels and other unused letters.

Ideally, you want to work around green letters. Since you know the position of a letter in green, you can use that to your advantage to construct other words just to rule out additional letters. This also works in your favor if you are trying to find out the positioning of yellow letters.

Finally, you shouldn’t try to look for repeating letters until your last three tries. Unless you’re absolutely certain, go ahead. Those are usually the streak killers.

You can play Wordle for free on the New York Times website via a smart device or PC.
