1. Letters that are successful nan reply and successful nan correct spot move green.

2. Letters that are successful nan reply but successful nan incorrect spot move yellow.

Quordle needs to beryllium approached successful a different measurement to Wordle. With 4 puzzles to lick successful 9 guesses, you can't blindly propulsion letters astatine it and expect to triumph - you'll guidelines a acold amended chance if you deliberation strategically.

That's nan lawsuit successful Wordle too, of course, but it's moreover much important successful Quordle.

There are 2 cardinal things to remember. 

1. Use respective starting words

Firstly, you won't want conscionable a azygous starting word, but almost surely two aliases three starting words. 

The first of these should astir apt beryllium 1 of nan best Wordle starting words, because nan aforesaid things that make them activity good will use present too. But aft that, you should prime different connection aliases perchance 2 that usage up tons much of nan astir communal consonants and that see immoderate remaining vowels.

For instance, I presently usage STARE > DOILY > PUNCH. Between them, these 3 words usage 15 of nan 26 letters successful nan alphabet including each 5 vowels, Y, and 9 of nan astir communal consonants (S, T, R, D, L, P, N, C and H). There are plentifulness of different options - you mightiness want to get an M, B, F aliases G successful location alternatively of nan H, possibly - but thing for illustration that should do nan trick.

If each goes well, that will springiness you a bully lead connected what 1 aliases sometimes 2 of nan answers mightiness be. If not, good bully luck!

2. Narrow things down

Secondly, if you're faced pinch a connection wherever nan reply mightiness easy beryllium 1 of respective options - for lawsuit -ATCH, wherever it could beryllium MATCH, BATCH, LATCH, CATCH, WATCH, HATCH aliases PATCH - you'll decidedly want to conjecture a connection that would constrictive down those options.

Plus, it's nan only action successful Hard mode. But successful Quordle, this will almost surely consequence successful a nonaccomplishment - you simply don't person capable guesses.

In nan script above, CLAMP would beryllium a awesome guess, arsenic it could constituent nan measurement to 4 of nan 7 words successful 1 go.
