# Quordle today – hints and answers for Friday, May 10 (game #837)

The last Quordle puzzle of the week is another fairly tough one, though that isn't exactly uncommon for this game, which continues to challenge people who sail through Wordle. I count myself among them, having never lost a game of Wordle since I started playing in 2022 (I did lose once in the Wordle Archive), but having several times been defeated here. There are some clues to help you solve it if it all proves too tricky.

SPOILER WARNING: Information about Quordle today is below, so don't read on if you don't want to know the answers.

## Quordle today (game #837) - the answers

The answers to today's Quordle, game #837, are…

• QUASH
• PERKY
• ENSUE
• HARPY

What are the factors that make Quordle more difficult? Repeated letters would be one, and there are two Es in ENSUE. Uncommon letters, too – and there's a Q in QUASH. And to throw a third into the mix, how about words with too many similarly spelled alternatives… there are not really any of those here, but PERKY could also have been JERKY, so that's a half mark in that column.

In short, this Quordle puzzle was a potentially tricky one. Fortunately, my three start words came up trumps (mostly), giving me the green -UA-H that led directly to QUASH, and the P at the start of PERKY to make that one simpler. ENSUE was harder; I played UNSEE first. But I survived with one guess remaining, so I'll settle for that.
