Everyday Wordle Tips

I’ve written a lot about Wordle — from covering its 1,000th word to my list of the best starter words to a helpful two-step strategy to news about controversial word changes. I’ve also wrapped up what I learned playing the hit online word puzzle for a year. So if you’re rethinking your need for real answers, you might try the tips from one of those stories.

Do you still need a starter word? One person told me they simply look around and pick a five-letter object they’ve seen to use as their starter word – such as COUCH or CHAIR. I like to stick to starter words that contain the most popular letters used in English words. I like TRAIN as a starter, although a friend of mine uses TRAIL. I’ve read people use the financial term ROATE, but I like to use words I actually know.

What is Wordle?

If you’ve read this far, you know how to play. You have six chances to guess a five-letter word, and the game gives you feedback on whether the letters you guessed are in the puzzle, and whether they’re in the same place you guessed. The New York Times bought the game from creator Josh Wardle for seven figures in 2022. Wardle created the game for his partner, and let him narrow down the 12,000 five-letter words in the English language to just 2,500, creating a database of answers. It was also convenient that his name rhymes with “word.”

A Times spokesperson told me it listed the first Wordle appearing on June 19, 2021, and the paper celebrated the game’s 1,000th word on March 15. Spoiler: That 1,000th word was ERUPT. As in, “Dad will be furious if Wordle is so hard he loses his streak.”

Times Games also has other fun games. My latest addiction is Connections, which I think is more tricky than Wordle. It’s the game in which you look at a grid of 16 words and try to put them into four groups of related words. Sometimes the connections between the words are pretty unique – like the time when there were four words that all started with rock bands, like “Rushmore” and “Journeyman.” (On April Fools’ Day Connections offered a bit of fun with an all-emoji puzzle. Some gamers didn’t find it funny.)

Spelling Bee is also a popular game at the Times. And there’s a new game that’s still in beta, Strands, that I’m trying to master.
