MARCH 26 NYT Strands Solved

The theme definitely did throw me off a bit at first. However, when clueless and marking every word I could find, I came across FAIRY at the bottom right corner. When it turned out to be the theme word, the fantasy nerd in me knew what the game was about today. Soon, I found DRAGON at the top and OGRE in the top left corner.

With these words in the bag, I took the wraps off MYTHOLOGICAL as the top to bottom Spangram. The rest of the words came easy to me, and it was not long before MERMAID and CYCLOPS appeared on the board. With that, only the few grids at the top right corner were left to be solved. Figured they formed CENTAUR, and that was the end of today’s game.

So, another NYT Strands solved with zero hints used. Woah, we are definitely on a roll here! If I hadn’t accidentally come across FAIRY, it would have been slightly more challenging.

So, that was my journey with Strands today. What about you? Did you end today’s Strands without using a single hint, unlike me? Let me know in the comments down below!
