The answers to today’s Strands, game #59, are…

  • THIMBLE
  • IRON
  • SHIP
  • WHEELBARROW
  • RACECAR
  • PENGUIN
  • SPANGRAM: MONOPOLY

  • My rating: Easy
  • My score: Perfect

I loved MONOPOLY as a kid, although my sisters probably didn’t love the zeal with which I would routinely bankrupt them. Anyway, this was a fun Strands puzzle, albeit not too taxing.

Four-letter words are the easiest to find in Strands, so it always helps when there are a couple of them among the answers. The two hidden within today’s puzzle – IRON and SHIP – were enough for me to confirm what the theme here was, when added to the hint of ‘A token of our appreciation’.

The only issue was that I have no idea what the tokens in MONOPOLY are these days. When did a PENGUIN get added? But finding the spangram was very easy once I knew what I was looking for, and that pointed the way to the likes of THIMBLE and RACECAR once the board had some structure.

How did you do today? Send me an email and let me know.
