Help with Wordle's 5-letter game: SS ...

Most Wordle players have already found or developed strategies that suit their playstyles. However, there may come a point on certain days when you feel stuck. Maybe you found a couple of letters from the answer but you cant seem to get past that point, either because there are too many options.

Check out the list below if you see two instances of S together.

Knowing where these two letters are can help you narrow down the list. Even though there are many variations of letters to fill in the blanks, there are some patterns. For example, the SS can never be at the beginning of the word, but there are many words that include the SS and start with S as well. The SS is always preceded (and succeeded, when its not at the end of the word) by one of the five vowels or Y.

Consonants like B, C, and G only appear at the start of the sentences, while Y is common at the end. Letters like J and Z appear only once on the whole list, and X is not a part of any of the sentences. But every item on the list has at least one vowel, so you can bet one of them will be there.

The best approach at this stage in the game is to eliminate all options that don't match your current criteria, such as those where the SS isn't functioning as it should be and those that contain letters that were previously grayed out. Starting from there, use your next assumptions to include as many new letters as you can, which gives you the most information. Leaving the SS aside and mixing consonants and vowels might provide better answers, but the choice between doing that and not depends on your playstyle.

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