Wordle game help: 5-letter words with A, E, and L

Wordle game help: 5-letter words with A, E, and L ...

The word-guessing puzzle Wordle has become one of the most popular games in the world since it was released in October 2021. Every day, countless players try to guess the mystery word in less than six attempts, and share their progress online with their friends in visually pleasing square emoji grids.

Long-time players have developed their winning strategies, usually involving a word or a combination of words that should provide the most information from the start.

Some of the most popular are finding the vowels first and always starting with the same three or four words, although this varies depending on the individual's playstyle.

No one of the above strategies works the same way every day, which means you may not receive all of the answers right away or become stuck after a few attempts. If today you found an A, an E, and an L in yellow or green, you can say that more than half the work is done. Here are some ideas for what you should do next.

Wordle will use five-letter words with A, E, and L.

The actual number of options you have will be much smaller than that. For letters that came out red, cross out all words in which they appear in different positions. For letters that came out green, cross out all words with letters that came out gray in your previous calculations.

Start looking for information on the remaining two letters, including G, M, N, R, and T. It is best to include as many of them as you can in a single word so as to avoid waste of valuable future guesses.

Although those words are valid assumptions, Wordle will never choose a plural form as the answer to the puzzle. One of the letters you are looking for might be a repeat of any of the others.

If you are still unsure and do not want to wait until Wordle resets at midnight local time, you may always look up the answer to today's puzzle (which we update around 12am CT).
