uordle is a word game inspired by the word game phenomenon Wordle–except it’s much harder.
The online puzzle was invented by a group of Wordle fans, with the prototype coming from engineer David Mah in “a moment of evil and genius”, according to Quordle creator Freddie Meyer. It was inspired by Dordle, which sees players try to guess two words simultaneously, with one keyboard.
A number of Wordle-inspired games have been created since the original took off last year, such as Heardle, Worldle, and Moviedle, just to name a few.
Quordle is perhaps the spin-off that is most like Wordle–and it’s the perfect challenge for those who have mastered the original game.
Find out how to play and the answers for today’s puzzle below.
How to play Quordle
Quordle’s rules are very similar to Wordle, but there’s a twist. Instead of trying to guess just one five-letter word, players are tasked with guessing four words simultaneously.
Like Wordle, you will have a keyboard to choose letters from, but in Quordle, the one keyboard will apply to all four boards, meaning you need to be tactical with your guesses.
If you get the right letter in the right tile, it will turn green, while if you guess the right letter but in the wrong place, the tile will turn yellow. If you pick a letter that does not appear in any of the four words, it will turn grey.
