Enter a start word and a target word to see how the Wordler solves the puzzle.

**Word lists**

Candidates only: Each guess must be conform to all feedback received so far. (Similar to “hard mode.”)

Common words: Guesses are chosen from the list of 2,315 common words.

Common + arcane: Guesses come from an expanded list of 12,972 words. (Please be patient!)

**Algorithms**

All the algorithms begin by evaluating each available guess with respect to all viable target words, counting how many pairings fall into each of 243 categories.

Maximize entropy: Choose the guess word whose distribution of scores has the highest entropy and therefore provides the most information about the target word.

Minimize std dev: Choose the guess word whose distribution of categories has the smallest standard deviation.

Maximize scatter: Choose the guess word whose distribution has the largest number of non-empty categories.
