Quordle today (game #873) - the answers

The answers to today's Quordle, game #873, are…

• LOGIC

• SOOTY

• WAGON

• BRIDE

You may have noticed by now, but LOGIC is very important to me in the way I solve Quordle (and also Wordle). I do sometimes wonder if I should instead just play the game. Choose a word, enter it, see what happens, have a think, try again and so on. If I did that, I might have more fun – but I would also risk losing far more often. But I now wonder if I'll ever lose Quordle, with my current strategy, so maybe it's time for a change – because that's rather dull. So let's give it a go tomorrow.
