## Quordle today (game #865) - the answers

The answers to today's Quordle, game #865, are…

• CRAVE
• CRATE
• NYLON

Sometimes my starter words work incredibly well. This is a strategy I've employed pretty much since I began playing Quordle more than two years ago: I open with STARE, DOILY and PUNCH, which between them use 15 of the most common letters in the game, including all five vowels, and with most of them in their most common positions. It's a cautious approach, because it will never allow me to score better than a 7/9, but equally it make a loss fairly unlikely.

Here, those three words gave me four letters for two quadrants and all five for the other two – so I only needed to add two more letters in total. In fact, one of those with the repeated N in NYLON, so really I just needed to add the V into CRAVE. Otherwise it was a simple case of solving a couple of anagrams, which proved a simple task.
