As important to your morning routine as drinking coffee or reading the news can be playing Wordle. Even the most seasoned players occasionally encounter obstacles, which is why Newsweek is here to help you cross the finish line.
Simple is the idea. A correct letter in the proper place lights up green, and a correct letter in the incorrect place turns yellow, giving you six tries to get a five-letter word. If the letter is not at all in the word, the tile’s color—and possibly your mood—is gray.
All tactics are significant. Always start with a word that contains a lot of vowels and save the less common letters for later.
