Beware of double letters

One of the Quordle hacks that's most commonly recommended by players is to not rule out a letter that is already partially yellow or green. Letters can appear more than once and often the instinct will be to ignore that letter once it has already appeared, but double letters are always an unfriendly possibility.

Pick strategic Wordle starter words

One Quordle player shared another unique tip on Twitter. The player encouraged Quordle fans to make their first guesses words that allowed all four vowels and four common consonants to appear in the grid.

"Quordle coaching tip: Finished today with two guesses to spare. It’s a strategy I developed playing Octordle. First two guesses using two three vowel starter words which include all six vowels and four common consonants will increase your odds of solving all of the words," said the Twitter user.

An example of this in practice is that players could use the words 'adieu and shout' as their first guesses and find out where all the vowels are placed and where some common letters such as 'd, s, h, and t were placed in the grid.

Eliminate letters

As players have just nine chances to solve four word challenges sometimes it's a good tip to guess words that you know are not correct, just so that you can eliminate some letters. 

This means that often it is best to guess a word that doesn't fit in the sequence but does narrow down the possible letters that could be used. For example, if you know the last four letters of a word are 'ound' you don't want to spend time guessing, mound, pound, sound, and round. It is better instead to guess a word such as ramps and you can see which letter turns yellow and fits into the word, without wasting all of your guesses. 


Practice is another good hack to improve your Quordle skills. Quordle has a practice option as well as a daily option that allows players to improve their skills with practice rounds and develop their own strategies for solving this word challenge.
