What is Quordle?

Quordle is a five-letter word guessing game similar to Wordle, except each guess applies letters to four words at the same time. Nine guesses are given instead of six for you to guess correctly all four words. It looks like playing four Wordle games at the same time, and that is essentially what it is. But it’s not nearly as intimidating as it sounds.

Is Quordle harder than Wordle?

Yes, though not diabolically so.

Where did Quordle come from?

Amid the Wordle boom of late 2021 and early 2022, when everyone was learning to love free, in-browser, once-a-day word guessing games, creator Freddie Meyer says he took inspiration from one of the first big Wordle variations, Dordle — the one where you essentially play two Wordles at once. Quordle was released on January 30, and Meyer took it to the next level. Meyer’s creation appeared in The Guardian just six days after it was released. According to Meyer, the game now attracts millions of users every day. Today, Meyer earns modest revenue from Patreon, where dedicated Quordle fans can donate to keep their favorite puzzle game running. How is

Quordle pronounced?“Kwordle.” It should rhyme with “Wordle,” and definitely should not be pronounced exactly like “curdle.”

Is

Quordle strategy different from Wordle?Yes and no.

Your starting strategy should be the same as with

Wordle. In fact, if you have a favorite Wordle opening word, there’s no reason to change that here. We suggest something rich in vowels, featuring common letters like C, R, and N. But you do you.After your first guess, however, you’ll notice things getting out of control if you play

Quordle exactly like Wordle.What should I do in

Quordle that I don’t do in Wordle?Solving a

Wordle puzzle can famously come down to a series of single letter-change variations. If you’ve narrowed it down to “-IGHT,” you could guess “MIGHT” “NIGHT” “LIGHT” and “SIGHT” and one of those will probably be the solution — though this is also a famous way to end up losing in Wordle, particularly if you play on “hard mode.” In Quordle, however, this sort of single-letter winnowing is a deadly trap, and it hints at the important strategic difference between Wordle and Quordle: In Quordle, you can’t afford to waste guesses unless you’re eliminating as many letters as possible at all times. Guessing a completely random word that you already know isn’t the solution, just to eliminate three or four possible letters you haven’t tried yet, is thought of as a desperate, latch-ditch move in

Wordle. In Quordle, however, it’s a normal part of the player’s strategic toolset.Is there a way to get the answer faster?

In my experience

Quordle can be a slow game, sometimes dragging out longer than it would take to play Wordle four times. A blunt-force approach to guessing can speed up the game. The following strategy also works with Wordle if you only want the solution, and don’t care about having the fewest possible guesses:Try starting with a series of words that puts all the vowels (including Y) on the board, along with some other common letters. This strategy will eliminate most of the alphabet, so you can only make a few wrong guesses. But in most cases you’ll have all the information you need to guess the remaining words without any wrong guesses.
