Word games are fun, especially if you love words. They also can be frustrating sometimes, if you get stuck or feel unlucky.
When it comes to games like Wordle–or the fun alternative Wordlook that allows you to guess words as many times as you would like—success comes down to the word you choose to start with (aptly known as your Start Word.)
Here are some quick tips to help you win every day at Wordle, and then make playing Wordlook even more fun and challenging.
If you like to find your vowels first, start with a word like adieu. Other words that help you find those vowels include weary, canoe, audio, Ouija, or equal.
If you want to take a scientific approach, think about how letters are used in the English language. Some letters appear more frequently than others—a useful thing to know if you also enjoy doing puzzles like cryptograms.
The most commonly used letters are e, t, a, i, o, n, s, h, and r.
Using a word like shine, haste, or even story will get you far. (Story also helps because if there is a y, it often comes at the end of a 5-letter word.)
You want a word that allows you to find or eliminate as many letters as possible. At the same time, remember that duplicate letters may occur in the word. Once you have established that a letter exists in the word, it’s easier to think about whether it might appear more than once.
Other great words to start with include: farts, death, house, or stone.
Word game color coding is there to help you.
If a letter turns up gray, don’t reuse it.
If a letter is green, build words around it, keeping it in that location.
Take your time, there’s no rush. Work things out on paper first if that helps.
Perhaps your first guess is completely gray. Frustrating? Perhaps. Yet it helped you eliminate five letters, including possibly a few vowels.
For example, if your gray word is teary then you know to try a word with some combination of i, o, or u in it. By choosing a completely different word, you get to eliminate more letters, and probably discover at least one or two that will help you solve the puzzle

Word Look differs slightly in that you do not have to start with the entire alphabet. While having 26 letters to choose from adds to the challenge of Wordle, it also means that your guesses are simply guesses—and you can easily guess incorrectly 6 times in a row.
Having letters to choose from makes the guesswork slightly less random, and yet there are still multiple possibilities of words to choose fun. For example, how many 3- letter words can you find with the following letters?
C W O E L
