Wordle and Quordle beginners’ guide if you are one of the few people in the world not completely hooked on the word games


First, there was Temple Run, then there was Flappy Bird. Now, Wordle is the latest mobile craze to sweep the nation – and indeed the world – since it launched three months ago. The web-based word game gives players six attempts to guess a five-letter word, with feedback given for each guess in the form of colored tiles.

Players get clues to tell them whether the letters that they have guessed are in the correct place or not, while some super fans of the show have come up with their own theories on how best to tackle the game. For those seeking more of a challenge, Quordle is a more difficult version of the popular game, which can be found on the App store.

You’re only limited to one Wordle puzzle a day, which has left fans wanting more. The aim of the game is to guess a five-letter word within six attempts. Wordle can be downloaded on the App store.

For each guess, the letter tiles will show up in one of three colours. If the tile turns grey, the letter does not appear in the word you are guessing. If it changes to yellow in colour, the letter you guessed is in the word, just not in the correct position. If the tile turns green, the letter is in the word and in the right place.

On super fan on TikTok, who runs an account called Linguistics Discovery, has shared his top tips to help you succeed on the daily Wordle challenge. He says that in order to give yourself the best chance at success, that you “need to take into account the frequency of letters in the English language.”

He told fans: “‘Tears’ and ‘stare’ are good first guesses but my professional recommendation is ‘irate’, beause E, A and I are the most common vowels in the English language, and R and T are the most common consonants .”

The site keeps track of your statistics, showing the number of correct answers you’ve managed, and your current winning streak. If you really want a challenge, Wordle even has a hard mode, which can be turned on in the settings.

Quordle

Quordle, simply put, is an insanely difficult version of the original Wordle. The rules are exactly the same, but the player has to guess four secret words at the same time, instead of just one.

When you type a guess, you will be forced to guess that word for all four words that you are solving – so think carefully and choose your guesses wisely. All four words you are solving will be different, so it’s not for the faint-hearted.

Each guess must be a valid five-letter word, while the tiles will change color after entering a guess. A green tile indicates that the letter is in the word and is correctly placed, while a brown tile means that a letter is present in the word, but in the correct position.

The game gives you nine attempts to guess all four words correctly. Unlike Wordle, you don’t need the App store to play Quordle. Simply click this link to play.
