Quordle today – hints and answers for Sunday April 14 (game #811)

Quordle must be approached in a different way than Wordle. With four puzzles to solve in nine times, you can’t blindly throw letters at them and expect to win. You have a much better chance if you think strategically.

That is of course also the case in Wordle, but in Quordle it is even more important.

There are two important things to remember.

1. Use multiple opening words

First, you don’t want just one initial word, almost certainly two or three starting words.

The first of these should probably be one of the best Wordle starters, because the same things that make them work well will apply here too. But after that you need to select one or possibly two more words that use many more of the most common consonants and also contain the remaining vowels.

For example, I currently use STARE > DOILY > PUNCH. Together, these three words use 15 of the 26 letters in the alphabet, including all five vowels, Y, and nine of the most common consonants (S, T, R, D, L, P, N, C, and H). There are plenty of other options – you might want to put an M, B, F or G in there instead of the H, maybe – but something like that should suffice.

If all goes well, it will give you a good idea of ​​what one or sometimes two of the answers might be. If not: good luck!

2. Narrow things down

Secondly, if you are confronted with a word whose answer could easily be one of several options – for example -ATCH, where it could be MATCH, BATCH, LATCH, CATCH, WATCH, HATCH or PATCH – you will definitely want to do guess a word that would limit these options.

In Wordle, you can instead try several in a row and hope one is right, assuming you have enough guesses left. It’s risky, but sometimes it works. Moreover, this is the only option in hard mode. But in Quordle this will almost certainly result in failure – you simply don’t have enough guesses.

In the above scenario, CLAMP would be a good bet because it could point the way to four of the seven words at once.
