April 24 NYT Strands Solved

The Strands today had me think about everything from Sudoku and Ludo to Wordle and Connections, but not what it was actually about. I couldn’t find anything in the grids and had to use a hint to find RIDDLE. That also led me to find MYSTERY and ENIGMA in the leftmost columns. I was blank yet again, and another hint revealed QUANDARY and I was done with the puzzle at this point.

Fortunately, I found CONUNDRUM in the bottom right corner. That ultimately helped me find BRAINTEASERS as the Spangram for today’s Strands, which concluded the round. Okay, we’ll never talk about the puzzle today. Never.

Had to use two hints and only making it through tomorrow’s puzzle without using any will make me get over it. Anyway, what about you? Did you have to use any hints or was it easy to you? Let me know in the comments down below.
