I've discovered the best way to cheat Wordle – how to use this crossword trick to get ahead of the game

LESS than a month into 2022, Wordle has become of the most popular games of the year. However, some users have come up with a neat trick to cheat the system.

A man on Twitter found a secret in the game’s code that shows all the winning words.


“Hidden in the JS source are all the unjumbled solutions,” the man tweeted. “There goes my fav [sic] leisure activity. Coding is bane.”

Many users have asked the man to take the tweet down, saying it “ruins” the fun for other people. However, it currently remains posted on the man’s account.

Shockingly, this isn’t the only way to cheat at the popular game. There is another, less blatant, way to game the system rather than just reading the answers in the game’s code.

As you start playing the game, make a few guesses until you get stuck. There will be a few green squares that indicate the correct letters.

You can go to a crossword solver. Some online crossword solvers require you to type in the clue the puzzle gives you, but Wordle doesn’t have any clues.

When you’re at the solver, set the number of letters to five, because all Wordle puzzles are five letters long. Next, type in only the green-square letters you know and put them in the right spot.

If you don’t know the other letters, leave them blank. The solver will give you a list of words that fit those requirements, one of them is likely to be the Wordle answer.

This is still cheating but it still has you making guesses and trying to figure it out, even if it does solve the game for you.

It’s unclear how long Wordle’s popularity will last compared to other games that have become popular during the pandemic.  But, for now, it’s become a great way for many people to pass the time.
