Wordle Tips, Tricks & Best Starting Words

Unsurprisingly, the best starting words in Wordle tend to have a decent mix of vowels. This’ll let you narrow down the word instantly, honing in on one or two vowels to orient future guesses around.

We love all of the following words as potential starting words thanks to their mix of vowels and common consonants:

  • OCEAN
  • RADIO
  • SOUND
  • AGILE
  • ESPON
  • TRACE

The New York Times’ Wordlebot 2.0 recommends players use the word ‘SLATE’ or ‘LEAST’ as their starting word. The famous Massachusetts Institute of Technology (better know as MIT) recommends ‘SALET’, which you’ll notice uses the same letters as SLATE. Ultimately, the call is yours.
