Detailed description of the game

From the above paragraph, you might have got a rough idea about the popular word game “Quordle and Worlde Daily”. 

But to talk and understand about the Quordle game we should be familiar with the Wordle game and you cannot skip this part. Since both games cannot be discussed in isolation, it becomes very important to carefully examine the working of both games.

  • Wordle Daily – This is a word game that was originally published by NY Times on their site with the name “Worlde of the Day”  where you have to guess the correct 5-letter word of the day. Please note that generally, all versions have 5 letter words to guess within 6 tires, there are some versions of the Wordle daily site that are of 6, 7, 8, and so on words and also with an increased number of chances above 6. These versions can make any permutation and combination of letters but the core main rules of the game remain the same. For a better understanding of the game, let us take the generally accepted format that is of 5 letter word that has to be guessed in 6 chances. 
  • Initially, the word would reset after 24 hours but now there are multiple sites that provide this game where you can disclose one word after another in the game. 
  • To begin, you have to first launch the game in your browser on your device. Here you will see 6 rows of 5 cells each and below there will be a keyboard. Now whatever 5-letter word you guess, you have to type either via keyboard or using the on-screen keyboard. You can see the sample given below:

5-letter word

  • Let us suppose the word you are guessing is WATER. Now if the word that is hidden has any alphabet of the word guessed by you in it, will the with the help of some color coding that is given below.

water quordle

(ALL THESE COLOR CODING PATTERNS ARE NOT STATIC AND VARY FROM GAME TO GAME TO HAVE A BETTER UNDERSTANDING, READ INSTRUCTIONS)

Here all colors that are taken are usually followed by all games irrespective of the platform you choose to play:

  • The green color in your guessed alphabet signifies that it should be in the exact cell position as in the hidden word. The color markings will appear once you type all 5 alphabets of the guessed words and hit enter.
  • Let us again take the example of the 5-letter word WATER and the word that has to be decoded is AMBER. Here since the ER in both words are at the same place, ER will be marked in the last two cells by green.
See also  How to Play Quordle: The 4-Word Wordle Challenge

decoded is AMBER

  • Now you have only decoded two alphabets of the hidden word AMBER, your next word that you guess should be ending with ER. From the above example, you can see there is one more letter in common which is the alphabet “A” but the position of the letter is not the same so, the “A” alphabet in the “WATER” typed by you will be marked in Yellow.
  • Your next guessed word should contain “A”, “E”, and “R” and you must try to keep the “ER” in the same position in another word so that you can minimize your number of attempts. 
  • While all the color codings are correct as well as possible letters in the guessed word, all other remaining letters will be shown slate-colored in their cells depicting that those letters are not part of the hidden word. Now see the example for better clarity.
  • The cells of the letters “W” and “T” of the word “WATER” will turn slate because both these letters are not present in the hidden word “AMBER”. Now to avoid reducing your chances, you must think of words that have the letters “A”, “E”, and “R” and no letters “W” and “T”. 
  • Now assume two words come into your mind that is “SAFER” and “TIMER”. So you must go for the “SAFER” word because “TIMER” has the letter “T” in it which was already ruled out when you tried for “WATER”.

SAFER

 

Although in this case, the “SAFER” word is also not safe!!! because the letter “S” and “F” are again not present in the word “AMBER” Still in your next attempt you will get a very strong hint about the positioning of the letter “A” as this same letter will again be highlighted as yellow in the word “SAFER”.

SAFER

  • Now from your previous action, you will be one more step closer to the hidden word. You are now aware that the “A” letter will definitely not come in the second cell, fourth cell, and fifth cell (4th and 5th due to ER). So the only place left for the letter “A” is either the first cell or the third cell.
  • Now, you have to think of words that either begin with the letter “A” or end with the letter “ER” or have “A” in the third position ending in “ER”. 
  • There aren’t many letters that end with “ER” and start with “A”. If your vocabulary is strong enough the word “AMBER” could have been your third or fourth guess making a minimum number of moves.

 fourth guess making

I hope till now you are through with the steps for playing “Wordle Daily”. To make this more interesting some Wordle websites include timers, where you have to guess the correct word within the time frame. You can also make your version of the 5-letter game and type a 5-letter word. Then you can send this to your friends where they will have to do the guessing work. So now let’s get started with the evolved version of the “Wordle Daily” game called “Quordle”

Quordle – Get ready for another fascinating guess game. This game was not published by the NY Times like “Wordle Daily”. Quordle was made by other successors of the Worlde game. The rules are similar here also.

  •  If Wordle was a tough one, this game will give you nightmares. There are many Quordle websites where you can play this game. Whenever you enter any Quordle site, the conventional version of the game consists of four quadrants with 9 rows in each quadrant with 5 cells each where you now have to guess the hidden four words situated one at each quadrant.
  •  Whatever word you will type, all the quadrants will be filled with the same word with each letter corresponding to each cell. You will be given 9 attempts on most of the Quordle sites. Some sites will publish the four words daily while one after another. You have to find out all four words within those 9 attempts. Here also lesser the number of attempts, the more will be your score. You can send this game also to your friend by giving them 4 hidden words for guessing. 

(DISCLAIMER – The modified version of the game can consist of more quadrants, cells, letters, and attempts in any form)

Now suppose you are playing the generalized version of the Quordle game with 9 attempts to guess 4 words of 5 letters. You have to unearth all four words within one attempt. Now take the example of this Quordle game where you are given CLOWN in 1st quadrant, TOWEL in the second quadrant, CLOTH in the third quadrant, and AGENT in the fourth quadrant. Below you can see the sample of a blank Quordle game. Now let’s begin playing it

  • Now whatever guess you make and type, you will get that printed on all the four quadrants altogether. 

[THE LETTERS IN () ARE THE WORDS THAT YOU HAVE TO GUESS, IN THE REAL GAME THESE WORDS WOULD BE HIDDEN AND YOU HAVE TO GUESS THEM WITHIN 9 OR FEWER ATTEMPTS. HERE THE WORDS ARE ONLY LISTED FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING]

QUADRANT 1 (CLOWN)                                           QUADRANT 2 (TOWEL)

Quadrant          Quadrant

QUADRANT 3 (CLOTH)                                            QUADRANT 4 (AGENT)

Quadrant          Quadrant

  • Let us assume that the first 5 letter word you thought and typed was “ZEBRA”

QUADRANT 1 (CLOWN)                                           QUADRANT 2 (TOWEL)

quordle zebra        quordle zebra

 

QUADRANT 3 (CLOTH)                                            QUADRANT 4 (AGENT)

quordle zebra.       quordle zebra

 

  • Now assuming the same color codes that are green for correctly placed letters, yellow for incorrectly placed letters and gray for non required letters this will be the result after to hit enter.

QUADRANT 1 (CLOWN)                                           QUADRANT 2 (TOWEL)

quordle zebra          2

QUADRANT 3 (CLOTH)                                                  QUADRANT 4 (AGENT)

quordle zebra              3

  • Since the letters that you have to guess correctly are “CLOWN”, “TOWEL”, “CLOTH”, and “AGENT” in quadrants 1, 2, 3, & 4 respectively,  but the word guessed by you is “ZEBRA” so no letter of “ZEBRA” matches the letters of the words from the first quadrant so you will not see any change in the color coding. 
  • But in the second quadrant and fourth quadrant, you have some letters common in the word you have guessed and the word you have to decode. In the word “TOWEL” and “ZEBRA”, the letter “E” is common but the position of the cell is not accurate so the letter “E” has been turned yellow. Similarly, the fourth quadrant has the letters “E” and “A” common and again they are wrongly placed here also the cells are yellow.
  • Now, your next attempt should be to avoid the “Z”, “E”, “B”, “R” and “A” letters in the first and third quadrants while guessing. Also for the second quadrant, try rearranging the placement of the letter “E” while guessing other words. The same goes for the fourth one, try rearranging the position of the letters “E” and “A” in the cells.
  • Now, suppose the word guessed by you is “CLOSE”. This will output after you hit enter.

QUADRANT 1 (CLOWN)                                                         QUADRANT 2 (TOWEL)

4             

QUADRANT 3 (CLOTH)                                                         QUADRANT 4 (AGENT)

             

 

Congrats!! You are close to guessing the word as you can see that the first three cells of the first and third quadrants have turned green signaling that these words are rightly placed in order. In the second and third quadrants, you can see some more yellow cells where letters “L”, “E”, “A”, and “O” are placed signifying that these are present in your word but not in the same cells. 

Now, you need to make another guess that satisfies all the above rules. Since there aren’t many words that begin with “CLO” and you guess the decoded word in your third attempt that is “CLOWN”. So here will be the following output:

QUADRANT 1 (CLOWN)                                                      QUADRANT 2 (TOWEL)

             

QUADRANT 3 (CLOTH)                                                      QUADRANT 4 (AGENT)

             

  • You have got your first breakthrough and you have successfully decoded the “CLOWN” word in the first quadrant and it will be closed and from the yellow and green cells of the other quadrants you have got more hints. 

Now for your fourth attempt, you are able to guess another word beginning with “CLO” that is “CLOTH” and is the correct guess for the third quadrant, then following will be the output:

QUADRANT 1 (CLOWN)                                           QUADRANT 2 (TOWEL)

ZEBRAZEBRA
CLOSECLOSE
CLOWNCLOWN
CLOTH

 

QUADRANT 3 (CLOTH)                                            QUADRANT 4 (AGENT)

ZEBRAZEBRA
CLOSECLOSE
CLOWNCLOWN
CLOTHCLOTH

 

You are now becoming a pro in this game and have successfully guessed the two words out of four. Since the first and third quadrant words have been revealed now you have to guess words only in the second and the fourth one. 

Now, you are familiar with the requirements and placements of the letters in the quadrants. The same information will be there in colored form on the onscreen keyboard for all the letters. Like in this situation the letter “O” on the screen keyboard will be divided into four quadrants. 

  • Quadrant 1 of the O key on the onscreen keyboard – is green because O is in the correct cell
  • Quadrant 2 of the O key on the onscreen keyboard – is yellow because O is in the incorrect cell
  • Quadrant 3 of the O key on the onscreen keyboard – is green because O is in the correct cell
  • Quadrant 4 of the O key on the onscreen keyboard – is gray because O is not in the word

For your other attempt let us assume the word guessed by you adhering to the hints from the above is “TOWER ” then the following will be the color coding in the cells.

QUADRANT 1 (CLOWN)                                           QUADRANT 2 (TOWEL)

ZEBRAZEBRA
CLOSECLOSE
CLOWNCLOWN
CLOTH
TOWER

 

QUADRANT 3 (CLOTH)                                            QUADRANT 4 (AGENT)

ZEBRAZEBRA
CLOSECLOSE
CLOWNCLOWN
CLOTHCLOTH
TOWER

 

  • See how close you are to solving the Quordle, you are now only short of one letter from guessing the letter of the second quadrant. By now you know that the fourth quadrant word will contain letters “T”, “E”, “N” and “A”. 
  • In the English language, there are only two more 5-letter words that begin with “TOWED” & “TOWEL” and by luck, you prefer to type “TOWEL” instead of “TOWED” then this will be your output after you hit enter.

QUADRANT 1 (CLOWN)                                           QUADRANT 2 (TOWEL)

ZEBRAZEBRA
CLOSECLOSE
CLOWNCLOWN
CLOTH

TOWEL

 

QUADRANT 3 (CLOTH)                                            QUADRANT 4 (AGENT)

ZEBRAZEBRA
CLOSECLOSE
CLOWNCLOWN
CLOTHCLOTH
TOWER
TOWEL

 

You are close to winning the game, now you have the answers for the first three quadrants and an abundance of hints for the fourth quadrant. 

You know that your other word for the last quadrant has to have letters “T”, “E”, “N” and “A” where.

  •  The letter “T” – cannot be in the first cell
  •  Letter “E” – cannot be at the 4rth cell and 5th cell
  •  The letter “N” – cannot be in the 5th cell
  •  Letter “A” – cannot be at 5th cell

 So following these combinations let us suppose you think of the word “AGONY” and hit enter after typing, Then this will be your output.

QUADRANT 1 (CLOWN)                                           QUADRANT 2 (TOWEL)

CLOWNCLOWN
CLOTHCLOTH
TOWER
TOWEL
AGONY

 

  • You are again one step closer to guessing the exact word and now you have successfully placed the letters “A”, “G”, & “N” in the correct place. Now you have to think of the letters in cell 3 and cell 5.
  • From previous hints you know that:
  • The letter “E” is part of the word and cannot be placed in 5th place. So the only place left for it is the 3rd cell. Fill in “E” here.
  • Also, you are aware that the word has the “T” and cannot be placed in 1st cell. So fill it in the 5th cell.

QUADRANT 1 (CLOWN)                                           QUADRANT 2 (TOWEL)
