## Wordle Tips

If you’re hoping to get better at Wordle then we’ve got some tips for you that will hopefully have you solving these more easily next time you play!

• Use a good starting word – Try to figure out a few go-to words that you will start your puzzles out with that feature multiple vowels and that do not repeat words you’ve already tried. These are traditionally things like Adieu, Audio, Raise, Atone, and Stone.
• Watch out for duplicate letters – It’s easy to forget that you might have repeat letters in your puzzle. For example, the word “buzzy” has double “z” in it. This won’t be obvious from the clues given by Wordle. Just because you see a letter is green in a particular spot doesn’t mean it wouldn’t work in another!
• Search for 5-letter words – If you are feeling stumped then give yourself some additional clues! Do a search for 5-letter words that begin with or contain some of the letters you have found. This will help you find some words you might not know or have forgotten about. You can then hopefully figure out the puzzle from the extra help, which will in turn increase your knowledge for the next one!

Wordle is a word-guessing game that has become increasingly popular in recent years. The objective of the game is to correctly guess a five-letter word within six attempts. After each guess, the game provides feedback in the form of colored tiles indicating when letters match or occupy the correct position. Green tiles indicate a correct letter in the right position, yellow tiles indicate a correct letter in the wrong position, and gray tiles indicate an incorrect letter.

Wordle was created by Welsh software engineer Josh Wardle as a game to play with his partner. The game became publicly available in October 2021, and quickly gained popularity after Wardle added the ability for players to copy their daily results as emoji squares. The game has since spawned numerous clones and variations, as well as versions in languages besides English.

In January 2022, The New York Times Company purchased Wordle for an undisclosed seven-figure sum, with plans to keep it free for all players. The game was moved to the company’s website in February 2022. According to data collected by The New York Times, the most common first guesses in Wordle are “adieu”, “audio”, “stare”, “raise”, and “arise”.
