What does today's Wordle start with?

OK, it's now time to scroll down for the answer…

Today's Wordle hints and answer — solution #1,091, Friday, June 14 (3)

So, what is today's Wordle answer for game #1,091?

Drumroll, please — it'sVAULT.

Hello Wordlers. Nothing too taxing here, even if VAULT isn't a word that most people will use every day. Although 'V' is the fifth-rarest character in the game, 'A', 'L' and 'T' are all among the six most common Wordle letters.

ORATE found two of them right away: 'A' and 'T'. Both turned yellow, leaving 60 possible answers in play, according to WordleBot.

That's not bad, but lots of WordleBot's best Wordle start words were better. PLATE leaves 19 answers, while CARET drops that to 16. If you played PLANT, just five answers would be left over.

On my second turn, I aim to test the five next most common letters: 'I', 'C', 'S', 'N' and 'L'.

TAILS was a great way of doing that, and it was tremendously effective, turning both 'A' and 'L' green, while ruling out 'T' in two more positions. In other words, the answer had to be either ?ATL? or ?A?LT.

Only two words fit that bill, according to WordleBot, but unfortunately, I picked the wrong one first. I typed in FAULT, which turned everything green except 'F'.

That left only one option: I typed in VAULT and completed the game in four turns.

Hopefully you did well today, Wordlers. See you tomorrow.

Yesterday's Wordle answer

Reading this in a later time zone? The Wordle answer for game #1,090 was ANGST.

Hello Wordlers. A slightly odd answer today, but nothing too trying with the right start word. After all, four of ANGST's five characters feature among the ten most common Wordle letters.

ORATE revealed two of them right away: 'A' and 'T' which both turned yellow. That meant that going into the second turn, 60 possible options remained in play.

Many of WordleBot's best Wordle start words were better than that. LEAPT leaves 29 options, while TRAIN lowers that to 16. SLATE leaves seven answers, and if you played PLANT only the solution would be left open.

Today's Wordle hints and answer — solution #1,091, Friday, June 14 (5)

I try to fit 'I', 'C', 'S', 'N' and 'L' around my confirmed letters on my second go, but the best I could do today was HAUNT.

This was actually incredibly effective, but it didn't appear so immediately. 'T' went green, 'A' was ruled out in two more positions and I now knew I had a yellow 'N' in the mix. All this combined to leave only the right answer.

That explains why it took me a while. After playing around with my letters for a good few minutes, one option occured: ANGST. I typed it in, and completed the puzzle in three moves.

Hopefully you did well today, Wordlers. See you tomorrow.

Wordle tips — how to win at Wordle

The best tip I can give is to use one of thebest Wordle start words. I can't stress this enough — it makes a massive difference.

Without one, you'll be scrabbling around in the dark trying (and possibly failing) to find the right five letters (or possibly fewer) out of the 26 possibles. But clever people (not me) have done the math and identified the best start words based on both frequency in English and frequency among Wordle answers. So use them!

Secondly, think about combinations, especially at the start and end. Some options are far more common than others — for instance, SH, ST, CR and CH all feature frequently.

Vowels obviously need consideration too: not all Wordle answers will contain more than one, but plenty do, and some even have three. A good Wordle start word should have used a couple, but if they don't feature you might well want to try another one or two on your next go. Plus, remember the Y — this sometimes acts as a surrogate vowel, and is easy to forget. It also appears at the end of plenty of words.

Finally, try out possibilities. So long as you don't press 'Enter' you can try possible answers to see how they look on screen. Put in likely letters plus any you know are definitely in the word, then mentally change one to the other available options. This technique has worked for me multiple times, and it's particularly helpful when the word in question is not an obvious one (like FJORD or ISLET).

But if you're still struggling with Wordle, check out how Tom's Guide's Wordle experts have honed their strategy after playing a lot of Wordle after it first launched.

We also have plenty of Wordle tips and tricks to share, like how we've analyzed every Wordle answer used to look for trends and have some further advice for you there.And if you're new to the game you should also take a look at our What is Wordle? guide.

What else should I know about Wordle?

Wordle officially launched in October 2021, but actually started in June of that year and celebrated its first birthday on June 19, 2022. (You can read my thoughts on the 5 things Wordle needs to improve if it's to keep us playing on into a fourth year.)

However, it only grew in popularity towards the end of the year, then went viral in January as the world woke up to its charms. In fact, it proved so successful that The New York Times bought Wordle for a seven-figure sum in early February and the game is now part of NYT Games.

It's played via the NYT Games website here, and is entirely free. Both the NYT and the game's creator, Josh Wardle, have stated that it will remain free. Some people think that Wordle has got harder since the NYT takeover, but it really hasn't.

Wordle is a simple game in which your challenge is to guess a five-letter word in six attempts. Each time you guess, you're told which of your chosen letters are in the target word, and whether they are in the right place.

If a letter is in the correct place, it turns green. If it's in the word but in the wrong place, it turns yellow. And if it's not in the word at all, it turns gray.

There's just one puzzle a day, and everyone completes the same one. It resets at midnight each day. You'll find more information about the game in our What is Wordle? article.

Wordle Alternatives

If you're eager for another game to pass the time while you wait, we've put together a list of the best Wordle alternatives.

Other Wordle alternatives to try are the ultra-stressful (but very good) Squabble and the soccer-themed, Who Are Ya?. We also like the geography-based Wordle clone Worldle, the Star Wars-themed SWordle and the math-based Mathler.

There are certainly plenty of options once you've finished Wordle for the day!

    There is no yellow E in Stare for March 27th.


  • John II

    I used to use SUITE which uses 3 common vowels and 2 common consonants. Lately, it seems like some of the words have been a bit more obscure, so I've switched to HAVER (thanks goes out to The Proclaimers and 500 Miles for this obscure word). If no hits, that's fine, I burn some more letters to narrow the field by using two more vowels and other common consonants... MOIST. Yeah, I know... no one likes MOIST, but it reveals two more vowels and three more consonants . That combo helped me get today's HAIRY on the third guess! 🆒


  • Nhobuna

    The may 10th answer might also be a double. I was working through it but I have a b,u, and t as letters that are in the actual word.


  • TexTechie

    There are 2 answers again evidently.. I have the same word as you and it's not gecko obviously 😅


  • Scotth71

    Far from Gecko for me. Not sure what is going on but seems someone has mucked up.


  • SS2021user

    Was in the exakt same position with the end of 335, but chose wrong. Didn't think GAMER would be a very likely word, so I chose GAZER instead. Goodbye 40 day streak!


  • Jarmeister

    Ugh. Today's (#344) was near impossible for a non native English speaker. Word I've only heard in couple of songs and would probably not use naturally in conversation.


  • JES2000

    I'm surprised to see the misspelled "alright" in a wordle story.


  • SS2021user

    I got Wordle 348 in 3 guesses as well, but I got... slightly luckier with my second guess. After guessing STARE I guessed PHONY, leaving me with 1 possible solution, and 4 green letters.


  • R_macus

    Streak ended with #357. Stare, House, poise, loose, moose, noose.
