NYT Strands today: hints, spangram and answers for Monday, June 10

Strands is a new daily puzzle from the New York Times, offering a more challenging take on the classic word search. You’ll need sharp observation skills to solve this puzzle. Like Wordle, Connections, and the Mini Crossword, Strands can be tricky on some days. If you’re stuck and need help, the answers to today’s Strands puzzle are provided below.


How to Play NYT Strands


In Strands, the objective is to find the “theme words” hidden within a grid of letters. You manipulate letters by dragging or tapping to form words, and double-tap the final letter to confirm. Correct words are highlighted in blue and are no longer selectable.

If you discover a non-theme word, it’s still beneficial. For every three non-theme words of at least four letters, you receive a hint that reveals letters of one of the theme words, which you then need to unscramble.

Each letter in the grid is part of the theme words and is used only once. Additionally, each puzzle contains one “spangram” — a special theme word or phrase that spans from one side of the board to the opposite side and is highlighted in yellow when found.

The aim is to complete the puzzle quickly without relying too much on hints.
