## Quordle today (game #870) - the answers

The answers to today's Quordle, game #870, are…

• QUILT
• PARTY
• SPARK
• SINCE

QUILT is one of those words that regularly catches me out in Quordle. The problem is that whenever it appears, I already have the -UIL- with a yellow T that could go at either end. That's due to my Quordle strategy, which consists of playing the set words STARE, DOILY and PUNCH as the first three guesses. That leaves me with GUILT or QUILT and I almost play GUILT in that scenario and end up being wrong – except, of course, for those times when I play QUILT and it ends up being GUILT. Typical.

That aside there was nothing too taxing here, with no repeated letters and no uncommon words.
