The answers to today’s Strands, game #94, are…

  • HOPE

  • My rating: Moderate
  • My score: Perfect

This is a classic Strands puzzle (if you can have such a thing only a couple of months in), where the challenge is very difficult until you uncover one word, at which point it becomes a lot more solvable. The theme clue of ‘They’re good people’ makes sense once you know what the answers are, but until then it doesn’t really give you that much of a clue. I’m fine with that, personally – it makes the challenge all the harder.

Once I’d found JUSTICE and FAITH I realized what the objective was, and found the others relatively quickly. The spangram did delay me for a while; I could see names, but couldn’t work out what the first half of it was. But eventually I spotted VIRTUENAMES and the final couple of answers followed soon after.
