Quordle

Quordle is four times Wordle. Four Wordles, all at once. Solve all four words with 9 guesses. There are 2 modes: Daily and practice for all players who love this type of crossword puzzle.

 A quartet of Wordles So how do you play four Wordles at once? Well, you enter your guess and see it appear in the first row of every Wordle game. Then you see familiar colors that tell you which letters are correct and which are in their correct places. If you can guess all four words before you run out of nine guesses, you win.

 

Quordle is a spin-off of a game called Dordle, which challenges the player to do two Wordles at the same time.

 

How do you play it?

You will see four empty Wordle games in a two by two grid. Each grid has the standard nine rows and five columns for a five-letter word. Enter your first guess via the keyboard or the on-screen keyboard. Each grid will highlight letters that indicate how they relate to the word in that grid. Green means the correct letter. Yellow means the letter is in the word, just in a different position. Keep guessing and using the elimination process along with your knowledge of five-letter words, try to solve all four puzzles.

 

Is it harder than Wordle?

That is another challenge. You should have a greater hit rate for your predictions because the number of occurrences is more than four times. It's still challenging with only nine guesses. After five guesses, you need to determine the correct word for each of your remaining four turns.

Practice makes perfect.

 

In case Quordle doesn't do enough to nurture your habit, it has a practice mode. The original Wordle was famous in part for its everyday puzzle approach, a great way to market by word of mouth—but not so good for true game addicts.

 

Quordle still has 'word of the day', but it also has a practice mode: an endless cycle of random words that lets you practice to your heart's content.

 

Are there any easy steps to success? 

First, try to get good coverage of the letters early on. You'll have a bunch of letters appear more than in a regular Wordle round. I like to use maybe three different fonts at the beginning to cover 15 different letters. This can include all the vowels, y, and the nine most common consonants: T, N, S, H, R, D, L, C, M.

 

You now have two more guesses as you have to guess each word in one turn. At this point, you should be looking for any obvious words. It's worth guessing if there's a strong contender. The sooner you guess a word, the sooner you can narrow down the remaining words. Your conjecture could reveal useful information elsewhere.

 

Never forget that a letter can appear more than once! Don't rule out a letter too soon, just because it has been scored yellow or green. And, on the desktop version, try reducing your font size if you can't see all four panels without scrolling. Quordle is helpful because it has a practice mode that lets you learn how to play before the daily challenge.
