Getting started with Semantle is a pretty simple task, as you just need to head on over to its website before you're able to get started with working towards figuring out that goal word.

Once there, simply pop a word into the box and press 'Guess', and you'll then be shown a number to indicate how close it is to the goal word that you're trying to deduce. If the number is lower and in a white highlight, you'll want to rethink your tactics. If you're seeing a higher number, or one in varying shades of pink, you could be on the right track.

Personally, I tend to start with the same word each day: Audio. It's a personal preference, but I find that it's a good one to start with that I like to use in plenty of different word games, and you can use that as a jumping-off point to decide which direction it is you need to go. If you've got your own word that you think is great to use each day that isn't mine, that's grand too - just go with what works for you (as you ultimately need to start from somewhere.)

Don't be afraid to use the 'Hint' button, either - it's incredibly useful when you're starting out and can help you out in a pinch if you've not found yourself getting any closer to where you need to be.

If you're finding yourself getting a little warmer towards the answer but still aren't quite cutting it, if you've looked at a hint, try thinking of synonyms for the particular word that has shown up.

Playing Semantle Junior

If you want to play Semantle Junior, you'll just need to press the 'Play Semantle Junior' button at the top right of the screen. This operates much the same as Semantle does, but when making a guess, you'll instead see a colour show up behind the word that you guess with a bar that will get closer and closer to the right depending on how close to the answer you are.

That bar will also change colour, too (with green being a great sign that you're on the right path). You'll also get the added bonus of some emojis popping up on screen too, which also change depending on how close you are to the correct word.

With all of these things considered, you'll be able to approach each game of Semantle that you play in the best possible way. And if not, don't worry - we've got you, bestie.
