On its website, NY Times has listed out how to play the game. A player gets six attempts to find out the word and each must be a valid word. After each guess, the color of the tiles will change to show how close your guess was to the word. After entering your guess, the game will tell you which letters are both correct and in the right place with a green tile. Letters that are correct but not in the right place are indicated with yellow. Gray means it is not any word in any spot.

1. Choose a word with at least two different vowels plus common consonants such as S, T, R, or N.

2. It's simply a matter of finding the right letters and putting them in order. 

3. Some people use the same initial guesses, for example, RAISE, CLOUD and RATES as they contain a lot of common letters and one of them is bound to stick the landing. Starting with common words helps you eliminate a lot of the unnecessary letters in your first attempt itself.

Does today's Wordle accept two answers?

Occasionally Wordle accepts two different correct solutions on the same day. However, today is not that day. This happens because of the changes the New York Times made after it acquired Wordle. NYT dropped a lot of the words from Wordle's original list which it considers obscure or potentially offensive.

To make sure you're always on the right page, just refresh your browser before your game. Rest assured, your streak won't be lost.
