Quordle today (game #914) - the answers

The answers to today's Quordle, game #914, are…

• NUTTY
• TATTY
• SHUSH
• THIGH

It's a repeat-heavy Quordle puzzle today, with repeated Ts in NUTTY and TATTY (three of them in the latter!), repeated S and H in SHUSH, another repeated H in THIGH. As a result of all that there were very few letters used today; only nine of them, in the form of N, U, T, Y, A, S, H, I and G. If you had them in your start words, you'll have been off to a good beginning – but still with work to do. If you didn't, or indeed if you don't have a strategy in that regard, you may well have found this to be a tough one.
