Letter Frequency in Quiddler Cards

The frequency in which various letters appear in the deck of Quiddler cards can affect play. For this reason it is helpful to know how many of each letter resides in the deck. In Quiddler there are generally not too many rounds of play before a player can lay down his cards. Thus, there will usually only be a few chances to improve a hand. Saving a card configuration waiting for a low frequency card can be a mistake even though the number of points acquired will likely be higher. Like most other card games with an element of luck, for the most proficient play, it is best to take the course with the best odds of winning.

The following chart lays out the frequency of each card followed by its point value. As you can see, it is actually more advantageous to wait for a low point card (like an "a" or an "e") than a high one if it will improve the hand.:

A - 10 - 2B - 2 - 8C - 2 - 8D - 4 - 5E - 12 - 2
F - 2 - 6G - 4 - 6H - 2 - 7I - 8 - 2J - 2 - 13
K - 2 - 8L - 4 - 3M - 2 - 5N - 6 - 5O - 8 - 2
P - 2 - 6Q - 2 - 15R - 6 - 5S - 4 - 3T - 6 - 3
U - 6 - 4V - 2 - 11W - 2 - 10X - 2 - 12Y - 4 - 4
Z - 2 - 14CL - 2 - 10ER - 2 - 7IN - 2 - 7QU - 2 -9
