It’s time to flex those lexical skills for another game of Quordle. If today’s quadrilogy of words has you scratching your chin, I’m here to help you out with some clues and the answers.

If you’re here, you likely know the drill by now. Just in case, here’s how to play Quordle: Just start typing in words. You have four five-letter words to guess and nine attempts to find them all. The catch is that you play all four words simultaneously.

If you get a letter in the right place for any of the four words, it will light up in green. If a word contains a letter from one of your guesses but it’s in the wrong place, it will appear in yellow. After you use a letter in a guess, you’ll also see on the keyboard whether it’s in any of the words.

Finding the four words ain’t always easy, though people seemed to find yesterday’s batch fairly straightforward. If today’s foursome is vexing you, though, here are some clues, followed by the answers:
