NYT Strands today — hints, answers and spangram for Thursday, May 9 (game #67)

Welcome to today’s edition of the NYT’s Strands game, in which your task is to uncover words hidden within a grid of letter. The twist is that they all follow a theme, and one – called the ‘spangram’ – describes that theme. It can be pretty tricky, but I’ve included some hints for you below to set you on your way. 

SPOILER WARNING: Information about NYT Strands today is below, so don’t read on if you don’t want to know the answers.

  • RAMP

  • My rating: Moderate
  • My score: Perfect

This one was all about solving the spangram. Without it, it was really difficult; with it, much, much easier. The theme clue made sense once you knew that the answer was MINIGOLF, but was obtuse enough that it didn’t entirely give the game away. I blundered around without knowing what was going on for a while, picking up TUNNEL and WATERFALL because they were easy to spot on the board, but having no idea of what the others could be. 

I toyed with it being something to do with rivers, or landscapes, but couldn’t make the clue work properly with them, and it was only when I added BOULDER, also by accident, that MINIGOLF became apparent. After that the others were easy pickings.
