That means you have access to all the best of the NYT including the articles, book reviews, and recipes. You also have access to those legendary games. Including the trendy WORDLE game!!!

What are some of your favorite first word guesses when playing Wordle?

Here are some favorite opening words that people like to use:

  • Adieu
  • Audio
  • Stare
  • Raise
  • Arise

Players often try words that contain both vowels and those high frequency consonant letters R, S, T, N, and L. While some players try to identify the vowels early, others focus on getting the key consonants.

Other recommended opening words from power Wordle players include:

  • Crane
  • Slate
  • Raise
  • Arose
  • Canoe
  • Noisy

To help develop your own strategy, the New York Times offers the WordleBot, opens a new window that will analyze your strategy and give you some feedback on your guesses.
