## Quordle today (game #815) - the answers

The answers to today's Quordle, game #815, are…

• MATCH
• APTLY
• BISON
• CLINK

Some words are very difficult to solve, whether in Wordle or Quordle, simply because there are too many options. My three start words cover 15 of the most common letters between them, but they're not that helpful with the -ATCH trap, where C, L, P, W, M, H and B are all possible starting letters. The latter four of those aren't included in my starting words, so I also need a further narrowing down word, possibly two, to identify which it is (in this case MATCH).

I also struggle with G and K endings for the same reason. There are lots of these: BLING/BLINK, THING/THINK, STING/STINK or, as with today, CLING/CLINK. As is often the case, I guessed wrong first time and needed two attempts to solve that one, having also used up a guess completing MATCH earlier on. In these kind of situations there's nothing for it but to protect your streak, using up as many letters as you can in order to get home on the last attempt. Play safe, live to fight another day.
