You need to approach Quordle differently than Wordle. With four puzzles to solve in nine guesses, you can’t blindly throw in cards and expect to win; you’ll have a much better chance if you think strategically.
This is also the case in Wordle, of course, but it’s even more important in Quordle.
There are two key things to remember.
1. Use several opening words
First of all, you won’t want just an initial word, but almost certainly two or three initial words
The first of these should probably be one of the best word starters in Wordle, because the same things that make them work well will apply here as well. But after that, you should select another word or possibly two that use many more of the more common consonants and include the remaining vowels.
For example, I currently use STARE > DOILY > PUNCH. Between them, these three words use 15 of the 26 letters of the alphabet, including the 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 get an M, B, F or G instead of the H, but something like this should do the trick.
If all goes well, this 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
Second, if you’re faced with a word where the answer could easily be one of several options (eg -ATCH, where it could be MATCH, BATCH, LATCH, CATCH, WATCH, HATCH, or PATCH), definitely you’ll want to do that. guess a word that narrows down these options.
In Wordle, on the other hand, you can try several in a row and hope that one is right, assuming you have enough guesses left. It’s risky, but sometimes it will work. Also, it’s the only option on hard mode. But in Quordle, this will almost certainly result in failure: you simply don’t have enough assumptions.
In the above scenario, CLAMP would be a great guess as it could point the way to four of the seven words at once.
