Can You Repeat Letters in Wordle?

> Can You Repeat Letters in Wordle?

Wordle is an addicting, extremely compelling word game that has players all over the world hooked.  This game wasn’t created by a whole team of engineers wanting to make millions but by one man named Josh Wardle, who wanted to create a fun game for his partner who was obsessed with word games.

The game grew in popularity in December 2021, just two months after it was launched. In those two months, the number of players grew from 90 in October to 300,000. Wordle, the online word guessing game, had become the word game for this generation- just like Scrabble and Boggle were for the previous one. 

  • Wordle is an online word game that can only be played once a day 

  • You must guess the hidden word with your only clue being that it is a five-letter word. 

  • You are allowed six attempts to guess the word and the color of each tile will change to show how close your guess was to the word.  

As I have written before, Wordle starts as a game of chance, then morphs into a game of strategy like Mastermind, while testing the strength of your vocabulary. Basically, it’s a game of chance, with the strategy of Mastermind (the game) whilst testing the strength of your vocabulary. 

A word of caution- playing this game once is enough to get you hooked. After all, the restriction of you not being able to play more than one round per day keeps the player in constant anticipation of the next day- what word will it be? In how many tries can I guess it? How many seconds, or minutes will I need to get the word right?

Wordle Tips

A word of caution- playing this game once is enough to get you hooked. After all, the restriction of you not being able to play more than one round per day keeps the player in constant anticipation of the next day- what word will it be? In how many tries can I guess it? How many seconds, or minutes will I need to get the word right?

If you are already hooked, then you will need some tips. It will come almost natural to ask, Does Wordle use words with two (or more) same letters?

The short answer is YES. Wordle certainly doubles up on certain letters, but not without a few rules.

After all, there are only two cardinal rules in Wordle- first, that the words have to be legitimate words in the English language and second, that they should only have five letters. 

Some commonly used first guesses include ABBEY, BANAL, EVADE, KARMA, NAVAL and SERVE.

But how does one strategize and determine if the word for the day has a recurring letter?

Here are some tips: 

  • Remember, everytime you misrepeat a letter, the second letter’s tile will remain grey. So if the word you are guessing only has one A but you put two A’s in your guess, then only one A will appear either yellow or green- yellow meaning the letter is accurate, and green, meaning the letter is not only accurate but is in the correct place in the word’s spelling.  

  • Vowels tend to repeat more often in words than consonants. 

Happy Wordl-ing!
