The answers to today’s Strands, game #106, are…

  • RISK
  • MONOPOLY
  • TROUBLE
  • CLUE
  • SORRY
  • BATTLESHIP
  • SPANGRAM: BOARDGAMES

  • My rating: Easy
  • My score: Perfect

This was a relatively easy Strands game, despite the fact that I hadn’t heard of a couple of the games in question (and despite one, CLUE, being named CLUEDO in the UK).

MONOPOLY and RISK both stood out right away, and once I knew what I was looking for, the spangram of BOARDGAMES was simple, too. That split the grid in half, and made it much easier to find the remaining answers. As I mentioned, I wasn’t familiar with a couple – TROUBLE and SORRY – but once the spangram was in place there were only so many words that I could make from the remaining letters, so I picked those off one by one with a minimum of fuss.
