## Quordle today (game #834) - the answers

The answers to today's Quordle, game #834, are…

• DEFER
• BOUGH
• MISER
• MAGMA

Phew! Once again this Quordle went to wire for me, thanks to a poor showing from my three set start words, which today only uncovered one yellow in the fourth quadrant, and only three or four letters in the others.

I needed some guesswork to get home in time, and my task wasn't helped by the repeated letters in DEFER and MAGMA (two of them!), or by the fact that WISER has several similarly spelled words, such as WISER and RISER. OK, so maybe playing MISER before RISER would have made sense, but I'm allowed one mistake, right?

The Daily Sequence, meanwhile, was just as tough thanks to the presence of TIBIA and KINKY. Maybe tomorrow will be a little easier.
