The answers to today's Quordle, game #817, are…

  • STAMP

  • FORTH

  • DULLY

  • OUNCE

A much easier Quordle today, for me at least. However, it may not have been easier for you, because as with the past couple of days there's a repeated letter to contend with, and also some words that have multiple similarly spelled alternatives.

The worst was DULLY, which could have been FULLY, PULLY, SULLY, GULLY or BULLY. That wasn't an issue for me because I already had a green D in that segment of the game, but maybe it was for you, in which case this was probably the hardest answer to find. FORTH could also have been WORTH, which might also have caused you to lose one guess.

Fortunately for me, my start words did a lot of the hard work, and I was able to complete today's Quordle with two guesses remaining. Fingers crossed that you solved it too.
