## Quordle today (game #859) - the answers

The answers to today's Quordle, game #859, are…

• DODGY
• LIBEL
• LANCE
• GROIN

My three set start words came up trumps again today. Take a look at the bottom left, for instance: I already had --NCE in place, plus yellow A and L to play. Clearly the answer had to be LANCE. That then gave me a green L for LIBEL in the bottom right, which came in handy later on for potentially the most difficult of the four quadrants.

DODGY, in the top left, was another one where I had a good start: DO--Y, which given the letters that were already ruled out, could only really be the actual answer, DOGGY or maybe DOOZY. One day I may change my strategy, but I can't think of a better one right now.
