How to kick ass at Wordle.

Here, let me explain how you can crush Wordle every time you play it, as I have already proved to myself, and I will now explain to you. This is not rocket surgery, there is one -- and exactly one -- simple rule to mastering Wordle and amazing your friends. Are you ready? Here's the rule:

Make sure every guess is totally compatible with all previous guesses.

That's it, that's all there is -- you need to make sure that every guess you make is entirely compatible and does not conflict with all previous guesses, because that is where most people screw up.

They get impatient, they can't come up with a word that matches what they've already guessed, so they get frustrated and guess something that clearly violates what they've already seen. And sure, they'll probably get more information, and get closer to the solution, but if they do this, then what they've guessed cannot possibly be the solution, and that's why they lose.

So, that's the one simple rule -- be patient and keep going over the choices in front of you until you find a word that could be the actual solution. I guarantee you will look like a superstar.

See how easy that is?

You're welcome.
