If you are a Quordle addict and have not yet solved the October 13, 2022 puzzle, please do not read this blog until you have. (The image above is of an old game, but the one at the end of this post is today’s solution. Consider yourself warned!!!!)
Okay, I have a confession to make. Every night, no matter how exhausting my day has been, I must wait for the turn of midnight so I can go quickly to three websites in turn: Wordle, Word Huddle and Quordle. If you don’t know what they are, look them up, but be warned that they are addictive.
One reason I feel compelled to solve these word puzzles as soon after their posting as possible is because I know Forgottenman will be doing the same and will report (smugly or disappointedly) his scores for the first two. (He refuses to do Quordle, in spite of the fact that I tell him it is the most fun of all.) The truth is that I think it jinxes my luck if I hear his scores first, so I feel the need to hurry and do at least the two he does before I consult Skype again. Sometimes I beat him and smugly (or disappointedly) report my score. Here is my last Skype to Forgottenman last night, regarding Quordle, which gives you 9 chances to discover 4 words simultaneously. Other than that, it is just like Wordle:
Me: Quordle in 8. Would you believe, the last word was outgo??? I’d never heard of it.
Me: Right after I ingo, I discover I have to outgo! What a bother…. ;o)
