How do I play Wordle?
Wordle is a daily word game invented by software engineer Josh Wardle in 2021. It’s now available on The New York Times website and app.
Players get six chances to guess a five-letter word. Unless you’re extremely lucky, that means entering a guess and learning what you can from the results to choose your next entry.
- The right letter in the correct spot shows up in a green box.
- A correct letter in the wrong spot appears in a yellow box.
- A letter that isn’t in the word at all shows up in a gray box.
Even if you don’t want a clue to today’s answer, there are some best practices that can help you get to the finish line.
Choose a good first word. It’s nearly impossible to get the answer right out of the gate, so use your first guess strategically. Choose a word with three vowels — like orate, ratio or media.
Personally, I alternate between adieu and audio.
You also want to start out with a word that uses five different letters, to increase your odds of landing on some of the right ones.
Your guesses have to be real words. You might be tempted to randomly enter some commonly used letters to see if any are in the answer. Like, R, S, T, L, N and E — the letters provided to players on Wheel of Fortune.
But you’ll get a “Not in word list” message if you try.
Don’t pick SAT words. Wordle will sometimes use less common words — WOOER, CACAO and REBUS have all been answers.
But it’s rare for the solution to be a truly obscure term. (SOUND, GIANT and MAGIC were all Wordle answers during the week of Feb. 13.)
If you’re torn between a few different guesses, go for the more frequently used word.
Pick two very different words for your first two guesses. This one comes directly from The New York Times. Especially if your first answer doesn’t net a lot of clues, starting over with a new word with all new letters can help with the process of elimination.
Of course, it’ll also add to your overall score, so it really depends on how confident you are that you can solve the puzzle.
