There are far too many words for you to try, and you will need methods to narrow down the list.

  • Check the clues you have already tried. If you know what letters don’t work, you know which part of the list to start searching. In some cases, finding the first letter of the word help you narrow down the list significantly.
  • Eliminate words that you know can’t possibly be correct. With over 1,000 words, that’s not going to be an easy task. But as you find more hints, you start seeing which words can and can’t be part of the solution. That helps you devise a better tactic to narrow the possibilities.
  • Don’t use duplicate letter words unless you are confident. This word list is large enough that any of these words could be the correct answer. Depending on what clues you have uncovered, you may feel it’s a duplicate letter word. Make sure you know this to be true rather than guessing though, as there are too many possibilities if you are unsure.

It’s a long list, but somewhere in there is the answer to today’s Wordle.
