The article introduces a word-guessing game called Quordle, which is a variation of the popular game Wordle. Quordle challenges players to guess a five-letter word that applies to four different words simultaneously. The game was created by Freddie Meyer, who drew inspiration from another variation of Wordle called Dordle. Quordle has gained popularity since its release, attracting millions of daily users. Meyer now earns modest revenue from Patreon, where dedicated Quordle fans can donate to support the game.
In terms of difficulty, Quordle is harder than Wordle, but not overwhelmingly so. The article also highlights some differences in strategy between the two games. While in Wordle players often rely on single-letter variations to narrow down the correct word, this approach can be misleading in Quordle. In Quordle, players must eliminate as many letters as possible at all times to make the most efficient guesses. The article suggests that in Quordle, it is acceptable to guess random words known to be incorrect in order to eliminate certain letters.
For those seeking hints or faster ways to find the answers, the article offers some suggestions. It recommends starting with a set of words that include all the vowels and other common letters to eliminate a significant portion of the alphabet. This strategy reduces the number of possible wrong guesses, making it easier to deduce the remaining words. Additionally, the article provides the answers to the current Quordle puzzle, but warns readers that knowing the answers may spoil the experience.
