The answers to today’s Strands, game #107, are…


  • My rating: Moderate
  • My score: 1 hint

This is classic Strands challenge, in that it’s really tough until you know what the concept is, and then once you work that out it gets a lot easier. However, this one was complicated for me by a spelling difference.

In the English-speaking world outside of the United States, MUSTACHE is spelled MOUSTACHE. And that rather tripped me up, because though I had an inkling for what it might be early on, the fact that I couldn’t find an MOU pattern on the board left me bewildered and searching for a different angle.

In the end, I needed one hint to get me started, but once I had PENCIL, plus the theme clue of ‘It’s right under your nose!’, I decided that it simply had to be related to facial hair and started to look for others. After a few minutes I realized my mistake and found the spangram, and the rest of the answers followed swiftly afterwards.
