Are there any tips for winning?

Everyone has their own strategies, but there are a few golden rules to remember if you want the best chance of winning.

First, you want to start with words that contain a lot of running letters. Many players like to use lots of early vowels, as well as common consonants like R, S, and T.

Various experts, from linguistics professors to mathematicians and computer scientists, have weighed in on the best seed word.

A computer scientist who goes by crvlwalnek on TikTok reviewed Wordle’s source file to analyze the frequency of each letter in the winning answers, and found that the best starting word was “later”.

Other starters people have vouched for include:

  • Furious
  • Glance
  • Arise
  • arose
  • To learn
  • Soare
  • Samey

Another good tip is to not use duplicate letters from the start. For example, starting with a word like “awake” is not optimal because it uses two A’s.

Sometimes you may want to ignore your previous guesses to eliminate certain letters. However, Wordle also has a “hard mode” that prevents you from doing this. You can access it by tapping the settings icon in the top right.

Finally, it’s important to think about common conventions when guessing words. For example, many words end with -ICK or begin with SH-. Scan the alphabet while making your guesses and see what works phonetically, and you’ll be rewarded with those satisfying green squares.
