## Quordle today (game #927) - the answers

The answers to today's Quordle, game #927, are…

• GUSTO
• SPRIG
• SOLID
• SWORE

Quordle is always easier when some of the answers begin with the same letter, because getting the start of a word is almost always more helpful than getting the middle or end; it's probably something about how the human brain recognizes patterns. Today, three of Quordle's answers begin with S, and given that one of my three start words, STARE, also starts that way, I had an immediate advantage with three-quarters of the puzzle.

That was just as well, because SPRIG is not an obvious word to play, and GUSTO could also have been tricky, but I had plenty of letters to play with early on and solved them all with two guesses to spare.
