## Quordle today (game #838) - the answers

The answers to today's Quordle, game #838, are…

• SPINY

• FRAME

• GOOEY

• FERAL

Another tricky Quordle that I only ended up solving on the final guess. I don't think I was ever in that much danger; I had enough attempts to play a narrowing-down word on the seventh go, in order to identify FRAME, and got lucky with the opening F there also forming the start of FERAL. Neither GOOEY or SPINY were exactly straightforward solves either, so I was relieved to escape this Quordle with my streak intact.
