Given that Quordle is like Wordle but a lot harder, we do not judge anyone searching for the daily Quordle answers for game #522. Or rather 'answers' plural, as Quordle has four solutions to find each day.

If you've not played it yet, you should — it offers four times the fun of the original viral word game. But it's arguably more than four times as difficult, as you only have nine guesses to find the quartet of words. (Sometimes, today's Wordle answer is harder.)

Like Wordle, it also resets each day, so if you miss one game you'll have no way of knowing what the previous daily Quordle answers were. Well, unless you bookmark this page, in which case you'll be able to check today's Quordle answers at your leisure, as I'll be updating it each morning.

Quordle was acquired by Merriam-Webster and could get some new features. We will keep you posted right here if the company makes any changes to the game.

Be warned: Spoilers lie ahead for game #522 so only read on if you want to know today's Quordle answers! And please don't use this page to cheat and pretend to others that you got it right when you didn't really. That would be a misuse of our hard work.

So, what are today's Quordle answers for game #522? 

I won't make you wait any longer — here you go:


Today's Quordle answers were fairly easy, resulting in a score of 3-4-6-8. As usual, I began with two of the best Wordle start words, RAISE and COUNT, since they contain all five vowels and five of the most common consonants. They gave me all the letters in one word, so that just required a bit of rearranging. The others fell into place thanks to some lucky guesses.

What else should I know about Quordle?

Quordle is one of the many Wordle clones to have arrived in the wake of Wordle's huge success. It's essentially the same game, but you play four versions of it simultaneously and have nine attempts to guess all the answers. 

The letters behave as they do in Wordle, turning green if they're in the right place, yellow if they're in the word but in the wrong location, and gray if they're not included in the answer at all. 

A nice extra is that though there's only set puzzle per day, a practice mode is also included. And you might well need it, because it's pretty difficult.

If Quordle is too tough for you, you might prefer something in our list of the best Wordle alternatives, but if you want an even more stressful test then we'd recommend either Squabble or Octordle. 

We also like the new Heardle, which is like Wordle for pop music, plus the geography-based Wordle clone Worldle, the Star Wars-themed SWordle and the math-based Mathler, among others. 

But the original is still the best, so don't forget to also check our the best Wordle start words and to look at today's Wordle answer if you won't get a chance to play.
