## Quordle today (game #866) - the answers

The answers to today's Quordle, game #866, are…

• STOIC
• LURCH
• FLESH
• FURRY

Here's another example of my three-start-word strategy paying off handsomely. Not that today's Quordle is particularly difficult anyway – just one repeated letter, in FURRY, no uncommon letters, no really obscure words. But it could still have caused me problems if not for the fact that my trusty opening trio gave me all five letters for the top two segments, four for the bottom left and three for the bottom right.

The top half were therefore solvable simply via an anagram, and neither STOIC nor LURCH tripped me up. The bottom left just needed an F added to it, to make FLESH, and that F ended up being one of the two letters missing from the bottom right, together with the repeated R.
