## Quordle today (game #829) - the answers

The answers to today's Quordle, game #829, are…

• TULIP
• PLAZA
• DAILY
• SINGE

What's the hardest word for Quordle? There's probably not one single word that would hold that honor, but PLAZA would be in the running surely. Not only does it contain two As – not a letter that often gets repeated – but one is at the end of the word, where As aren't commonly found. And, of course, it contains a Z – one of the least common letters in the game or the alphabet in general.

Fortunately, this isn't my first rodeo. With a green P and middle A in place, and with a yellow L also lurking, I spotted it after a bit of an internal brainstorming meeting. DAILY and SINGE were both ultra-easy due to the letters I'd already uncovered by then, and though TULIP required a little more thought I was able to solve today's Quordle with two guesses remaining.
