spot wrote: ↑Mon May 02, 2022 1:41 amIf you never change your starter word, you can guarantee that to happen once for the life of the game (3,000 days or so). If you change your starter word daily without remembering what words have already been chosen by the game, then you can expect it to happen 2 or 3 times. Either way it's a bit of a shock.

And... if you eliminate all the words that have been played from your list of possible guesses each day, you can get your likeliest number of first-time guesses to 8.58.
I will add to my thinking so far, if I may.

For some while I thought that using the 10 most common letters in English for the first 2 words would give me a good chance at getting the solution at guess 3 or 4. And it does. It's a lousy strategy on quordle though. I'd stick with it on wordle.

For quordle, using the 20 most common letters in English for the first 4 words gives me a very good chance of solving with 8 guesses, and a very good chance of 9 as a fallback. So far it's not failed at all, I'm rather hoping to find a game where it fails. The strategy does stop me getting a better score though, which is practically unavoidable if you tie up the first 4 guesses that way. It's very very safe though.

Googling my 4 quordle words gets no hits. Googling my 2 wordle words found one hit, which pleased me that someone else had chosen it.

I am mostly randomized.
I start Wordle with a fairly random word. It must have two vowels. That has been my only "rule"
It seems to work as well as any other method I have seen being used.

Quordle, I have tried starting with the Wordle solution, so somewhat "randomized."

If I can solve one word in four or less, I can usually finish with a completion.

You could apply for Randi's psychic prize. I used to bid at bridge a bit like that.
