## Quordle today (game #862) - the answers

The answers to today's Quordle, game #862, are…

• SCORN
• REIGN
• EPOCH
• FIGHT

I nearly messed up today's Quordle. It's not a hugely difficult one, and my three set start words of STARE, DOILY and PUNCH gave me a great opening to the game, with all the letters I needed for SCORN, four of them for REIGN and all five for EPOCH.

Unfortunately the final one was a little trickier. I could see that -IGHT was a likely format, but inexplicably played WIGHT rather than trying to narrow down the options. I realized my mistake right away, but could see that MIGHT, FIGHT and BIGHT were all still options, so had to play FAMED in order to eliminate two answers and keep my streak alive.
