How to Play NYT Strands

Before I get to decoding the puzzle for today, here’s a quick rundown of how to play NYT Strands for new players:

  • Using your mouse or fingers (if on a touchscreen), you need to connect letters on a grid to form words. You can drag your mouse to connect letters vertically, horizontally, or diagonally.
  • Look for the Spangram or the central theme word, which will help you make more sense of the Strands theme.
  • Apart from the Spangram, you need to find other theme words in the puzzle, finding all of which will solve the puzzle.

June 24 NYT Strands Solved

Fine print instantly had me thinking about newspapers and magazines. But, finding absolutely nothing remotely close to anything like that, I knew I was in for a bumpy ride today. After looking for quite a while, I decided to use a hint, which gave me TARTAN in the top right.

I still couldn’t get the theme and had to use another hint to get ARGYLE. It was when I accidentally stumbled upon STRIPES in the bottom right that I realized what the theme was about. I was on the right track since I found CHEVRON and PAISLEY rather quickly right after.

PATTERNS was the Spangram for the day, and the last remaining grids housed GINGHAM. And, well, that was it for today’s Strands!
