A big part of Wordle‘s viral appeal is that it is easy to learn and hard to master. While it may seem easy on paper, some Wordle puzzles are tricky. In fact, many of the puzzles feature some uncommon letter combinations, forcing you to think outside of the box if you want to best your friends and co-workers. 

Nowhere is this better seen than words with U as the third letter and N as the fourth letter. While UN is a common prefix and suffix, it is uncommon to find it inside words. Especially inside five-letter words. Making this an extremely tricky letter combination.
