From left to right, these are your Octordle words and answers for puzzle 115.


It's a tough one, so we wouldn't blame you for seeking out a little help. There's no judgement here.

How Do I Play Octordle?

Like the other word games out there this year, the Octordle game site is all you need to play this one. Just head there on your phone, tablet, PC, or even Xbox if you want. The game will load up and you'll be good to go.

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.

So far, Octordle doesn’t have a colourblind mode and uses gray for incorrect choices, yellow for the right letter in the wrong place, and green for the right letter in the right place.

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.


Can I Play Past Octordle Games?

Sort of. Octordle has one standard puzzle every day for everyone to play, but it also has a “free Octordle” mode.

Free Octordle lets you play randomly chosen Octordle puzzles as many times as you want. There’s no limit in this mode to how many Octordle puzzles you can play each day, but we won't be able to help you out with the answers. You're on your own with that one.
