## Quordle today (game #861) - the answers

The answers to today's Quordle, game #861, are…

• BUILT
• FRIED
• LEERY
• JAZZY

I needed a bit of luck to solve today's Quordle puzzle, which is understandable given that it is potentially quite a difficult one. For starters, it contains JAZZY – one of the hardest Wordle answers ever when it appeared last June. As if one Z isn't complication enough, it has two of them plus a J, a letter that's even less common than Z.

Annoyingly, BUILT was the word that I 'lost' an answer on, playing GUILT first. I then had to rely on guesses without much margin for error in order to find FRIED, LEERY and JAZZY. The answer for JAZZY, for instance, could have been JAMMY or MAMMY. Fortunately my hunches proved correct, and I solved it with a guess to spare.
