The theme today had me think that maybe the Strands today was about shades of red. And I was probably a bit right, having found BURGUNDY a minute into the game. However, post that, it got a bit tough to find words with that thought. When I found TOMATO at the top, I realized that it was about things that are red in color.

With that thought, REDALERT running through the middle as the Spangram was very easy to find. I quickly found STRAWBERRY in the bottom left, CARDINAL in the top right, and CINNAMON in the top left. That concluded my game, and well, we didn’t have to use any hints.
