What is Wordle and how did it get so popular?

Probably you have already seen color boxes popping up all your social media feed. These are the answer boxes of this widely hyped title named, Wordle. The rules are pretty straightforward. The player has to guess a 5 letter word in six attempts. Green box color means the correct letter in the correct place, while a yellow color box means the correct letter in the wrong place.

You can keep trying for 6 times to guess the correct word. Once completed, players can also share their results on their social media handles.

Tips and Tricks – How to win Wordle every time.

The Wordle is a fairly simple game if you have good vocabulary skills. Here are some useful tips and tricks to get the word right more quickly and effectively.

Use vowels

How can we not mention vowels in this list, right? Make sure that you always start with vowels. Even if the vowel is not in its right spot, you can get a lot of ideas from it. Another thing players have to keep in mind is to never repeat a vowel/letter.

Take your time and think

Once you get 1-2 words correct, just take your time and think about all the possible words. Do not rush as the best strategy to get the word right is to play this mini-game like a strategy, puzzle game.

It requires patience and making sure that you write the word and note down letter permutations on a notebook or notepad. Once you are convinced, just enter your guess to check.

Make letter combinations

One of the most important things to take into consideration while making letter combinations is to go with the most obvious ones. Get a dictionary to examine the target word after getting 3 words correct.

Pay extra attention to other details and result

Even if you are wrong, the games give a lot of details about your guess. Every single turn, even if it wasn’t correct, is important in Wordle as you’ll get to know about your mistake.

Take a slight break in between your guesses to freshen up your mind and look at the grid again. This will help you get more ideas.
