APRIL 1 NYT Strands Solved

Like I said, I was expecting NYT to completely throw us off with the theme today. However, that was not the case and my eyes instantly landed on LAUGH in the extreme right columns. Then, running similarly through the same letters on the leftmost grids, I found ROAR. HOOT wasn’t trying hard to hide at all, sitting right under it.

At the top, I found CHUCKLE, TITTER, and GUFFAW in succession. The Spangram became quite obvious at this point, and I found HILARIOUS running from left to right on the board. From the last couple of grids, after a couple of tries, I made CHORTLE out.

That concluded my Strands for the day. Well, I used no hints today, and that’s always a good thing. What about you? Did you solve today’s game as easily? If not, how many hints did you take? Let me know in the comments down below!
