# Quordle today – hints and answers for Wednesday, June 5 (game #863)

Another day, another set of Quordle puzzles to test your mettle. And if one word game isn't enough for you, there's also the Daily Sequence variant, which challenges you to solve four Wordle-style grids consecutively, rather than concurrently as in the standard game – but while using the same letters. It's all rather complicated to explain, but easy to pick up.

SPOILER WARNING: Information about Quordle today is below, so don't read on if you don't want to know the answers.

## Quordle today (game #863) - the answers

The answers to today's Quordle, game #863, are…

• QUITE
• LAPSE
• LYMPH
• SIGMA

This is a potentially difficult Quordle, depending on your strategy. There are no repeated letters, but there is an uncommon Q in QUITE, plus LYMPH and SIGMA have uncommon spellings.

What do I mean by that? Well, Y is generally found at the end of a word rather than in the middle, and LYMPH is also a very rare word in that it contains no vowels – or at least that's the case if you don't consider Y to be one. Opinion is split on that; clearly Y acts as a vowel here, but some sources state that only A, E, I, O and U are really vowels. Y sometimes makes a vowel sound, but it's really a consonant.

Anyway, a word without any of the five standard vowels is uncommon. As far as SIGMA goes, A at the end is also uncommon. So, a complicated Quordle that you'll have done well to solve today.
