You might need help with these.
Web-based puzzle games like Wordle and its many variations have become a popular way to start the day, presenting just enough of a challenge to make it fun, as well as a social element. The game is inspired by the classic Mastermind, but with a twist.
Each day, players need to guess a different word in up to six tries, and the only clues are the letters themselves. First you enter a five-letter word of your choice, then get feedback from the game indicating if the letter is in the correct position, in the wrong position, or not in the word at all. After you figure out the word or run out of tries, you can share progress on social media in a specific format.
If you’ve been playing Wordle long enough, you’ve probably found or developed a strategy that can guarantee your win on most days. You still may, however, find yourself stuck with a mere two letters in the beginning of the word, like “ST,” for example. That usually happens when you can’t think of a word or when there are too many.
In case you’re struggling, below is a list of words you can try.
That is quite a long list, and a lot of them are common words likely to appear on Wordle at some point. The most important thing you need to do, if you haven’t yet, is to find your vowel or vowels, which will significantly narrow down the list above.
