APRIL 8 NYT Strands Solved

The theme for today’s game was the biggest hint. I knew it had something to do with time, and thus, found MONTH, DECADE, and HOUR on the right by that logic. With that, I shifted my focus to the left side of the letter grids and found MINUTE on the bottom left.

The top left corner was home to SECOND and running beside it at the top-middle was WEEK. With the remaining letters, it wasn’t hard to find CENTURY as the last theme word before I was left only with TIMEPIECES running from top to bottom as the Spangram. That concluded today’s game and didn’t have to use a single hint! We are back on the streak.
