Looking For Code Word Tips

I've been playing Code Word for a short time and would like some strategic tips.  I guess the only thing I'm seeing is that "E" is usually the most common letter. Are there other things that would improve my game playing?  Thx, any help is appreciated.  Christine

Hi @Rhymesometimes - I like Codeword also. Like you, I try the letter “E” early on. I often go on to try the rest of the vowels after that. Sometimes that is helpful. Good luck!

Hi Christine 

I love playing Codeword its my favorite game I'm no champ but strive for 10,000 points a game/day anytime get that feel did great

 

Things I've learned 

Since game doesn't start till I click a box I always try b4 start figure out word with most given letters & try those letters see if makes other words in puzzle or if shows words know won't work

Also I look over puzzle for words with same three matching endings to words

Example : 4 11 22 that can represent I N G ending most puzzles but not all have couple words ending with ing therefore that helps fill other letters that will lead to determining words

FYI:  you can click EYE (top right) when on letter box with your choice letter or it blank and it'll reveal correct letter or let you know its correct costs points in score to do this but some puzzles are really tough worth points to use less time also less entering incorrect content which both also cost scoring points

Good luck Enjoy!
