The answers to today's Quordle, game #831, are…

  • WAGON

  • QUICK

  • MURAL

  • LIEGE

I cut it fine with this edition of Quordle, only solving the fourth and final sector on the last guess. QUICK, which might have been expected to cause problems thanks to that uncommon Q, was not the issue; my opening three guesses gave me -UIC-, so it was a fairly obvious answer. Instead, I struggled with LIEGE – which has a pesky repeated E – and MURAL, which has a common format that's shared by many other words. I got there in the end, but it was a close-run thing.
