NYT Strands Answers and Spangram: Are you having trouble solving today’s NYT Strands puzzle? The puzzle for today isn’t too difficult, but its theme can cause some confusion for you. The NYT Strands Answers for July 11 are provided here, along with some basic tips in case you’re having trouble finishing the game.

Although NYT Strands isn’t as well-known as its New York Times game brothers Wordle and Connections, it may be just as enjoyable and difficult. Strands recently exited beta testing and is now available on the official Games app of the New York Times, which may attract additional users. In this story, I go into a lot of detail on the NYT Strands rules.

How To Play Strands

The Strands puzzle from the New York Times is a parody of the traditional word search. Since it’s currently in beta, its survival depends on how many people use it each day.

Every day, a new Strands game is available to play. You will be given a six-by-eight grid of letters to work within the game. The goal is to identify a cluster of words that share a common theme; you’ll be able to deduce what that theme is. A theme word will always be highlighted in blue when you find it.

Here’s a little explanation of how to play NYT Strands for new players before we get to the puzzle:

  • To make words, you must link the letters on a grid using your mouse or your fingers if you’re using a touchscreen. To join letters diagonally, vertically, or horizontally, drag your mouse.
  • To better understand the Strands topic, look for the Spangram or the main theme word.
  • In addition to the Spangram, you also need to look for additional theme words in the problem; solving them all will reveal the solution.

Lately, the Strands puzzles have become pretty simple. I swear, when I read the theme for lunch today, I didn’t start drooling, but I did find BROCCOLI on the right edge and BUTTER on the right very fast. In addition, I joined the letters to form CHILLI, which is above Butter, and BACON, which is below it.

I kept returning to Baked, but I was never able to get inside the Spangram. Then I saw Potato in the centre, and CHIVES in the upper right corner. Potato wasn’t the solution, though, so I joined the letters from the top to the bottom, which unexpectedly revealed today’s Spangram: BAKED POTATO. In the lower right corner, I finally located CHEDDAR to complete the puzzle.
