Additional ‘Strands’ Hints, Spangram, and Solutions from FORBESNYT for Saturday, April 27.

We have returned with another installment of “Weekend Strands,” which are enjoyable to complete but are typically not meant as an excuse to slack off at work. This week was unusual for me because I believed the puzzle was broken, but more on that later. but first.

Guidelines for Strand Play.

The Strands puzzle from the New York Times is a parody of the traditional word search. As of right now, it is in beta, so its survival depends on how many people use it each day.

Every day, a new Strands game is available to play. You will be presented with a six by eight grid of letters in the game. The goal is to identify a cluster of words that share a common theme; you’ll be able to deduce what that theme is. A theme word will stay highlighted in blue as soon as you locate it.

Additionally, you will need to locate a unique word known as a spangram. This explains the commonality of the words. Two opposing sides of the board are connected by a spangram. Although the spangram can be a proper name, the theme words will not. The spangram will continue to be highlighted in yellow once you locate it.

Each letter appears once in a theme word and spangram. Letters can be joined vertically, horizontally, or diagonally. You can also change the direction of a letter in the middle of a word. Double tapping the final letter will submit your guess if you’re using a touchscreen.

You can activate the Hint button by identifying three terms with a minimum of four letters that are not related to the theme. One of the theme words’ letters will be highlighted when you click this.

You’ll have to be alert, so be careful. Filling in the missing word or words in a phrase is sometimes necessary. On different days, the focus of the game might be homophones or synonyms. Every day will bring a different level of difficulty, and occasionally the puzzle designers will try to surprise you.

As you can see, these are particular items you use to clean yourself while taking a shower as part of your morning routine, not just cleaning supplies. I’ll talk more about it in a moment, but first, I have a query for all of you.

I thought the puzzle was broken today. I was aware that I was getting words, but the puzzle would not finish because they were not registering. I eventually figured out that in order to make sure I was spelling the word correctly, I needed to click on the final letter. I have never had to do anything like this before. I’ve heard friends claim they’ve never had to do it and others claim they always have to. How does your puzzle work? Why did mine suddenly switch? Why is this?

In any case, it all began when I tried to enter my first hint, which was clearly showing me RAZOR, but it wouldn’t let me. I tried clearing my cache and using a different browser, but nothing worked until I clicked the letters, so I guess that’s what I’ll have to do moving forward. Really strange.
