How do I play Octordle?
Part of what makes Octordle different from other word games is how it handles words. Letters and guesses count for each word. For example, if “shone” were the first word and the third has an “s” in a different place, “s” will show up on the next board highlighted in yellow.
Here's a breakdown of what each colour means when the tiles change:
- Green - The letter is in the right place for that word
- Yellow - The letter is in the wrong place for that word
- Black - The letter does not appear in that word
Octordle uses one word board for each set of two words. Once you get the right word, you can’t input anything else on that current board. You’ll need to scroll down to find the new active board. Any inputs you’ve made on the inactive board will still count on the new board, so mind what keys you press.
What is the best Octordle starting word?
As with Wordle, the best Octodle starting word is any with multiple vowels. “AUDIO” is always a good choice. It clears all but one vowel from the board, which should go a long way in narrowing down the right letter placement - or even guess it outright depending on how well the first match is.
