• WOMAN

• WAXEN

• FLIRT

• FLOAT

As with yesterday's Quordle I had to ride my luck a little today in order to preserve my streak. Partly that was bad luck – my three start words cover 15 of the most common letters in the game (or at least in Wordle, but the stats are likely to be very similar), but W, M and F are not among those 15. Given that W and F start all four answers between them, and M appears in one too, that left me scrambling to get across the line within my nine guesses.

The inclusion of an X within WAXEN didn't help, either; I played WAKEN first and lost one guess there. Still, I escaped with a last-gasp solve; hopefully you completed them all too.
