Players using quantum algorithms will win the code-breaking game Mastermind, which shares the same fundamentals as Wordle, more often and with fewer moves than players using classical algorithms

If you’re struggling with Wordle, you might just have to think like a quantum computer. In the long run, quantum algorithms will always perform better than classical algorithms in games and other similar algorithms.
Li Oasis At Sun Yat-sen University in China and his colleagues developed a quantum algorithm for the Mastermind game that shares many of the same fundamentals as Wordle.
In the game, a “code maker” selects four pegs, each of which can be one of six colors, and arranges them in a pattern. The “password cracker” then uses…
