## Quordle today (game #856) - the answers

The answers to today's Quordle, game #856, are…

• CRUMB
• MACRO
• WHEEL
• COMMA

Another relatively straightforward Quordle today, despite two of the answers containing a repeated letter. I was fortunate with the way the letters fell following my three start words; in the top left I had yellow C, R and U, and decided to add M and B to make CRUMB. Not only was that correct, but it also gave me a green C and M for COMMA in the bottom right, which might otherwise have been rather more difficult. Plus, it turned the M in MACRO yellow in the top right, helping me to tick that one off too. WHEEL, in the bottom left, required a bit of thought, but I spotted it eventually and solved the Quordle with two guesses remaining.
