    Most of us play Wordle, the very popular word game, because of the thrill of beating the game, as a mild amusement or just because our friends coaxed us into it and now it has become a habit. The game's simple gameplay and minimalist UI can get anyone addicted to it. And it has not even left the White House alone. The US Vice President is also an avid Wordle player and chances are she has already figured out Wordle 305 answer. But her reason to play the game is very different from most of us. Why does she play the game and how good a player is she? Read on to find out.

    It all began last week when Harris admitted, “When I can't sleep I've been doing Wordle” at a fundraiser. Ever since the remark, netizens have had a lot of questions. The questions ranged from how does the highest-ranking female official in the US history find the time to play the game, what is her Wordle streak and even what her favorite starting word was. Soon enough, The Ringer reached out to find answers and what has shocked us the most is her answer for why she plays the game. Check it out below.

    Why does Kamala Harris play Wordle

    Before we reveal the big question, let us find out Kamala Harris' Wordle strategies. She does have a favorite staring word and it is NOTES. When asked why she picked that word she said, “I think that you have to have a healthy mix of consonants and vowels, and a lot of words come with an S”. She also blames the New York Times for messing up her streak. Her current streak is at 48.

    The US Vice President also revealed that on average it takes her four guesses to get the word. That already puts her in the top 25% players in the world.

    But the biggest reveal was the reason why she plays the game. While for most of us it is the thrill of the win, for her, it is the peace of mind. She said, “Wordle, for me, is like a brain cleanser. So it's in the middle of very long days, back-to-back meetings on a lot of intense issues. If I have a break, let's say that people are running late or my little 25 minutes for lunch, sometimes while I'm eating I'll figure out Wordle”.

    Funnily, Harris has also attempted to get her staff to convert to Wordle as well. She claims she has had some success with it too.
