Wordle is a simple word puzzle game that was created and developed by Josh Wardle. You are asked to guess a five letter word by guessing other five letter words. When you submit a word, it will tell you which letters are in the word and whether or not they are in the wrong spot. You only get six tries per puzzle to get the answer right, so you will need to be clever. If you’re running out of guesses on one of these puzzles, we can help give you the solution so you don’t lose your win-streak!

Wordle FAQ

If you have some some questions about the game, hopefully they are answered below.

How do I get better at Wordle?

The main key to getting better at Wordle is utilizing words that span all of the alphabet while avoiding repeats of other letters. If you continue to play for long, you will start using the same starter words over and over. It’s best to find a couple of them that encompass all of the vowels and the most popular consonants. These words include things like Adieu, Audio, Raise, Atone, and Stone. Starting with any of these words will hopefully get you more clues earlier in the game.

What are Wordle’s Rules?

Here’s the official description of the rules:

Guess the WORDLE in 6 tries.

Each guess must be a valid 5 letter word. Hit the enter button to submit.

After each guess, the color of the tiles will change to show how close your guess was to the word.

There’s one addition to this that I would like to add and that is that letters can be repeated within the word. For example, the word “Truss” has the double ‘S’ in it. Which can trip you up if you make the assumption that only single letters are allowed.

Where can I play Wordle?

Wordle can be played officially on the Power Language Wordle website. This is the game that is played for free and only updates once a day. There are a variety of apps for your mobile devices that aren’t official, but work just as well. Type in Wordle into the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store and you will find a plethora of options.

What time does the Word reset in Wordle?

You will find a new puzzle and word to solve at 12am local time. This means that you will have a new puzzle to try at midnight wherever you live in the world. That also means that players in other parts of the world will get access before you might see it, so make sure to watch out for spoilers!

How do I share my Wordle results?

If you want to share your results, you can click on the bar graph button at the top of the screen and click on the Share button at the bottom of the menu. This will copy a grid of how you arrived at the answer so that you can paste it into a Tweet or a Facebook post.

That’s everything you need to know about today’s answer for Wordle! We have a variety of more information on many other types pastimes in the Game Guides section of our website.

    On my way towards solving today’s puzzle I tried the word WENCH but, for some reason, this word is not in the New York Times’ word list! Why not?

  2. Lindajeanne

    You’re taking all the fun out of the game! Many of us just enjoy the challenge and don’t want hints (“all the 5-letter words that begin with ‘bl'”).

    1. Shaun Savage (Admin)

      So don’t use hints then?

      1. Lindajeanne

        Scrolling through Google articles you see a title “5-letter words that start with BL”. You don’t have to read the article. “BL” stays with you. So when you play Wordle, you realize you’ve been given the first two letters. Boo!

        1. Shaun Savage (Admin)

          That’s unfortunate but there’s nothing I can really do about it. Sorry!

          1. Lindajeanne

            Just don’t put the clues (BL words) in the title of the article.

          2. Shaun Savage (Admin)

            That’s how people find the posts when they search for it.

  3. Steph46

    Your cheat almost made me lose my streak. The answer is Agora not Aroma like this article says… today being the 15th Feb.

    1. Shaun Savage (Admin)

      Were you playing on the NY Times version or another game? When they moved the game over it was switched from Agora to Aroma.

  4. Banino

    So, for example if there are 2 of the same letter in the answer, do your have to guess that letter twice to get both in?

    1. Shaun Savage (Admin)

      You would have to guess the letter twice to see the correct position. I’m not sure if that’s what you’re asking, if not, sorry!

    2. Zakreeeeya

      yes

  5. River Chance

    Question: If a letter is repeated within the word, do you have to enter it twice, or do the same two letters auto-fill after entering once?

    1. SeanG

      you have to guess twice. so for double ss in the answer, if you put one S it would show yellow or green depending on positioning, if you put two SS they will each indicate they should be there, if you guess LL but theres only supposed to be one, the second L will be grey like its a wrong guess.

  6. Magster

    Why did I get BLOKE on puzzle 229 and everyone else I know got SHARD??

    1. Shaun Savage (Admin)

      Are you sure you played the official version of Wordle? That’s the only thought I have on why you might have played a different word.

      1. Nutty

        Today’s answer threw me as it is American spelling.

        Bloody annoying.

        1. SeanG

          FACTS. And even on a .co.uk domain they give us a few americanisms

  7. ml66uk

    Nice page. Thanks for hiding the most recent answer behind the spoiler alert!

    1. Shaun Savage (Admin)

      Thanks!

  8. Tony

    Today 5th I got a word correct but so did my wife. Different words?
    Can there be more than one answer on a day?

    1. Shaun Savage (Admin)

      Are you sure the time hadn’t clicked over to a new day? The word gets changed right at midnight.

  9. Brad

    why would you post tomorrows?? keep it to TODAY (or even yesterday) ONLY

    1. Shaun Savage (Admin)

      Time zones exist.

  10. Naresh

    When I use Microsoft EDGE browser on laptop, I notice that I don’t have to wait for a day to get new word. Once I finish guessing one, the next one starts immediately. Is there a bug in this? On Chrome, after 1 game is over, we need to wait for next day for next game.

    1. Shaun Savage (Admin)

      Are you using Chrome on your laptop as well? Seems like a bug, because you should only be able to do one a day.

  11. Mamajoe

    Is it an app?

    1. Shaun Savage (Admin)

      Is Wordle an app? The official version is more of a website, but there are other versions that are apps.

  12. Slamdunk

    Do you have a list of all the wordle answers from it’s inception? Are there any repeats?

    1. Shaun Savage (Admin)

      No, sorry. Not sure if there’s been repeats or not.

    2. DavidPun

      No Repeats!

  13. Pluto

    Why are my letters orange and blue and not green an yellow. Very frustrating

    1. Shaun Savage (Admin)

      You might have accidentally turned on Color Blind Mode. You can turn it off by tapping on the Settings gear at the top of the page. Then uncheck Color Blind Mode, and that should fix it!

  14. Not Happy

    Hi mate, is it really necessary to share the answer so early in the day. At least take into account time differences. Just encourages cheating especially in large group chats that are very competitive.

    1. Shaun Savage (Admin)

      I delay it as much as possible, it becomes available a lot sooner than when I update it in some countries. Also, it’s actually very easy to get the answers early, so me updating this page with the solution won’t really hinder cheating.

    2. j4g

      Ah, I didn’t see this and made the very same comment. My sadness stems from the fact that because I’ve accidentally seen my tomorrow’s answer, I’ll have to wait another day to play.

      1. Shaun Savage (Admin)

        Sorry about that! It’s tough to manage the date and time based on how it releases throughout the world.

  15. LaSal

    On an iPad there’s no way to share results cos it’s saved to clipboard straight away – we don’t get the icons of platforms to share on :0(

    1. Shaun Savage (Admin)

      That’s a bummer!

    2. Riverlady

      You can share on an iPad, in Facebook, just open a new comment on your newsfeed and tap once or twice inside the comment window. This accesses your clipboard and Paste will show in a selection bar. I do it all the time.

  16. Stubby

    Why would anyone NOT play in hard mode? i.e. why would you not leave a green letter right where it is? Is it in case of a double letter?

    1. Shaun Savage (Admin)

      You wouldn’t leave a letter where it is because if you already know what it is you don’t need to keep adding it to the same spot. You can use that spot to guess other letters that might be in the puzzle.

      1. Jc

        That would mean you could never do better than 3 attempts?

        1. Shaun Savage (Admin)

          I suppose that’s true.
