How to Play Strands

In Strands, your goal is to find the “theme words” hidden in a grid of letters. Manipulate letters by dragging or tapping to craft words; double-tap the final letter to confirm. If you find the correct word, the letters will highlight in blue and become unselectable.

  1. Find Theme Words: Correct words highlight in blue.
  2. Non-Theme Words Help Too: Find three non-theme words of at least four letters, and you’ll receive a hint—letters of a theme word will be revealed.
  3. No Overlaps: Each letter in the grid is used exactly once.
  4. Spangram: A special theme word that spans the grid from one side to the opposite. Finding it highlights the word in yellow.
