Quordle today (game #940) - the answers

The answers to today's Quordle, game #940, are…

• ALOFT
• SNUCK
• LAPSE
• COMIC

Well, that's never happened to me before! Today, I nearly failed at Quordle due to a typo – yes, really. I'd struggled a bit with this one anyway, losing a guess to ALOFT (I played ALLOT first), but still had two guesses left for the final quadrant, with a green O and yellow I and C. COMIC was the obvious answer, but I was rushing and played COMIX by accident… and it was accepted. The horror! Fortunately I still had one guess left, but it was a reminder to be careful.
