Workout those brain cells as you try your hand at today's Quordle word puzzle

Whether you've aced the music spin-off Heardle and you've got the Film version Framed beat, it might be time to raise the stakes.

Described by some as 'Wordle on steroids', the tricky puzzle game puts your skills to the test by asking you to guess four five-letter words at the same time.

Here's how you can play the mind-bending game, some hints to help you along with today's puzzle and that all-important answer when you can't take it anymore!

How Quordle is different to Wordle and how to play

Like Wordle, we're on the lookout for five-letter words that work but rather than just one word daily, we need four!

Instead of six gos, you get nine attempts to guess the words correctly and light up those satisfying tiles.

Just like its word game cousin, the tile colours change colour depending on your answers.

You'll get a grey tile if the letter doesn't appear in that day's words.

If you get a yellow tile, it means that the letter is in the word but you don't have it in the right place.

And finally, the tile will turn green if you have the right letter in the right spot.

When you guess a word on Quordle, it will appear in all four answer boxes.

You need to keep your eyes on all the tiles since you can solve the puzzle in any order.

In fact, you could even find the third or fourth word before you've even cracked the first!

Quordle tips and tricks

Just like Wordle, the best strategy to increase your chances of solving the puzzle in as few guesses as possible is to maximise the amount of information you get.

Use your first guesses wisely by trying words with plenty of vowels like ADIEU, OUIJA or AUDIO.

If your first few answers produce very little, shake your guesses up and go in a completely different direction to give yourself a better shot.
