A Word Game! Well, I’ve always been tempted when I see one. Are you? I know not everyone is into word games, but I’m sure there are people looking for ways to challenge themselves. What better way than challenging your own intellect and seeing if you have what it takes? No, I’m not asking you to beat an encyclopedia. I am talking about Wordle; our most friendly word game. Anyone and everyone who is fond of words will surely love it. But, for those of you hearing it for the first time, I must warn you, it’s not that simple. You might find it difficult at times to guess the right word, it’s not impossible though. Its mysteriousness is what makes it more fun. Losing your calm will only bring you closer to losing it. You have to be attentive with an absolute determination not to give up. And you can certainly find a way if you are a true Cruciverbalist.
I won’t lie that I was a pro, as I had my fair share of defeats before I understood it. I suffered the wrath of words in my initial attempts. But now that I know it, I would share it with you too. And seriously it’s on my daily to-do list to go by Wordle Today and give my best.
Now let’s deep dive into it for you guys to understand it better. Unlike other games, Wordle doesn’t give you any number of hints. You are the one to create it for yourself by guessing a valid five-letter word. You have six chances to guess the secret word. And if you miss them all, you lose. But there are several tips and tricks which we will talk about later in the article.
For mastering a game it is important to understand how it works. With Wordle Today Game, the first thing we must know is that the secret words change every 24 hours. It is designed this way so that you always have a new challenge to look forward to. It really gets addictive like your daily dose of caffeine once you start enjoying it.
The game has five squares in the first row to fill with a valid word. Be mindful while choosing your words with unique alphabets as it allows you an upper hand in the game. Press enter once you are done with a word. The alphabet will turn in yellow, gray, or green. How do you know what that means? Let me help you with that. The alphabets that turn yellow indicate that they are in the secret word but at a different position. The ones that turn green are the alphabets that are both correct and correctly placed in the word. And at last, the ones that turn gray are not included in the word. The gray is the secret key hint to the secret word which is often overlooked. In order to hit the correct secret word, you must not only know what’s in it but also what’s not. Every word you use is important, so try to make the most of it. Play Wordle Today and have fun!
Try starting from a word that has different alphabets. And be more focused on the second word and try using completely different alphabets than the first word. The more different the alphabet from each other, the better for you. It helps you know which one to keep and which one to not. Mix them up and try looking for different combinations. It’s all in the words buddy. For some, staring at screens for hours doesn’t work even if they are the word genius themselves. In that case, you can always use a pen and paper if you like. Personally, the pen and paper thing works for me. You can jot down as many words as possible before you actually type it in. When visually in front of you altogether, the words make more sense.
Using as many vowels as possible in the first word will help you score some right alphabets. And rest, you know the drill of color blocks. If the vowels don’t seem to help, try googling different words with the same combination. You might wonder, why am I suggesting you cheat? But, it’s just taking the help. It’s not that Google knows the secret word. It will finally be us who have to figure it out. And, taking help is nothing immoral. I wouldn’t even recommend it in the first place if Wordle Today had been anything like the similar word games before it. People had an unlimited number of attempts to crack the code word. But, with Wordle, you only have six chances, and you would want to get as much help as possible.
Want to know some tricks which don’t make you feel like you’re cheating? Well, let’s get into that then. The carefully curated Vowel and consonant trick beat it all. Like I said earlier, try to get the most number of the correct alphabet in the first word. NEVER, and I repeat “Never” underestimate the importance of getting the most of it in the first word. You just have to go by the most common vowels early on. The most common in the sequence are E, A, O, I, and U respectively. Now, coming to consonants, use the same trick of popularity. R is the most used consonant followed by T, L, S, and N.
Try starting the game with a word that includes these alphabets, and it gets easier. But, tricks can only help you to an extent. You must brush up on your vocabulary, and it’s all easy-peasy.
Once you get the word right, you can see a colorful streak. It doesn’t actually show the words for others to know but how well you did. You can share it on social media with your friends too. If this is something that intrigues you then let’s find out what secret word it holds today.
