## Quordle today (game #840) - the answers

The answers to today's Quordle, game #840, are…

• CRASS
• NICHE
• CHEST
• PRIZE

I'd consider this to be a moderately tough Quordle, on account of the repeated S in CRASS and the Z in PRIZE, and I only solved it with one guess remaining.

PRIZE was the one that tripped me up; by the time I got to it the answer could only have been that or PRIME, but I went with the latter first on account of M being a more common letter overall. In terms of probability there's no reason why that would actually have made a difference, but I have to have some way to decide in these scenarios, and common letter is usually the one I go for.

Anyway, I ticked all of the others off without the need for too much thought, on account of my starting words giving me lots of lovely greens, so my streak was never really in danger.
