## Quordle today (game #921) - the answers

The answers to today's Quordle, game #921, are…

• TIGHT
• HONEY
• RETRY
• SPOUT

It's been a long old time since I've failed to solve a Quordle puzzle. Unlike Wordle, I don't keep records – but it's definitely been months rather than weeks or days, and it might be getting on for a year or more. But today, I lost my streak – and deservedly so.

I say 'deservedly so', but this is undeniably a tough one due to the presence of RETRY and its repeated Rs, to an extent, but more importantly the inclusion of TIGHT. This is one of the worst types of word within Wordle/Quordle, due to the volume of possible solutions. In fact, -IGHT has 10 of them: WIGHT, RIGHT, TIGHT, LIGHT, FIGHT, SIGHT, MIGHT, NIGHT, BIGHT and EIGHT. And my mistake – a big one – was forgetting about the repeated-letter option of TIGHT.

Things had been going so well until then, with HONEY, SPOUT and RETRY all solved with a minimum of fuss. I thought the final answer might be an -IGHT one, so guessed MIGHT, and though it was wrong, it confirmed my fears. And I simply didn't have enough guesses left to choose between them all. What I should have done was to have played a different word to MIGHT earlier on, which could have left me the time to then narrow down the options – but I was slack and paid the price.
