Quordle Origins

Quordle emerged as a trickier alternative to its distant relative Wordle on many puzzle enthusiasts' to-do lists in mid-February.

Quordle's principles are nearly the same as Wordle—the player guesses five-letter words every day.

Each guess will appear in four fields at the same time, representing the four words. You have nine chances to guess all of the words.

Like Wordle, players need to note the tiles' color if they are to win—green is a correct letter, while yellow means that the letter is in the word but not in the position you've guessed. Grey tiles mean that the letter isn't in the word.

The game requires even more work from players as they attempt to crack the puzzle, but fortunately you have the option to press a "practice" button before trying for real.

The word game is free to access at Quordle.com.

According to its website, engineer David Mah created the first prototype of the game "in a moment of evil and genius."

Many players were playing Wordle but finding it nearly impossible to fail after being allowed five guesses. Some tried Dordle by Guilherme S. Töws, but they still found it rare to fail to guess both words in seven tries. So they made an even harder puzzle.

Game creator Freddie Meyer said: "It was truly horrific code (it even had two keyboards) but I knew that I had to continue this madness. With hindsight, he really baited me into finishing his monstrous creation."
