It’s a lot of words, and it won’t be easy to narrow down the possibilities. Here are some tips to help you out.

  • Try a few duplicate letter words. While unique letter words provide more clues, there are a significant number of words on the list with same letters, such as “Moose” and “Mossy”. Disregarding them too early could prevent you from guessing today’s Wordle.
  • Eliminate words with letters that you know are wrong. For example, if you try a word such as “Moldy” and discover the last three letters are incorrect, you can remove words that have those letters. There’s no chance a word like “Motel” can be correct if “Moldy” was not.
  • If you tried other words before looking at this list, check to see which letters are incorrect. Check them against the word list and cross out words that don’t fit. After all, if you know the letter “G” is wrong, words like “Mogul” can’t be right. This lets you narrow down the right answer without using your existing tries.

While it is tough to narrow down a list of 50 words, these tips should help you work through each word. You can then solve today’s Wordle and maintain your streak.
