  • BILL

The Strands today was a tad too easy to figure out, thanks to the immediately finding MAGAZINE in the grids. Next, I found BILL in the bottom right corner and right above it, was PACKAGE, as clear as day. I also found POSTCARD in the bottom section, leaving only the top bit of the puzzle to be solved.

First up, I found SNAILMAIL as the right-to-left Spangram for the day. At the top of the Spangram, on one side I found LETTER, while the other side was home to INVITE. That concluded my game as soon as it started, basically, and I didn’t have to use any hints.
