NYT Strands today (game #95) - the answers

NYT Strands today — hints, answers and spangram for Thursday, June 6 (game #95) (3)

The answers to today's Strands, game #95, are…

  • GLASS
  • STONE
  • DRIFTWOOD
  • BOTTLE
  • SHELL
  • FOSSIL
  • SPANGRAM: BEACHCOMBING
  • My rating: Easy
  • My score: Mega-perfect

This may well be the easiest Strands puzzle of the week – to the extent that I scored a 'mega-perfect', the term I've coined for when you solve Strands without even uncovering a single hint word, let alone using any of them.

Partly that was because the theme clue, 'Tidal treasures', didn't leave much room for ambiguity, a fact that was made all the more stark when I immediately claimed GLASS and it turned blue. GLASS led directly to STONE and I was on my way. DRIFTWOOD, BOTTLE, SHELL and FOSSIL all followed with a minimum of fuss, and somewhere along the way I got the spangram, too.

Marc McLaren

Global Editor in Chief

Marc is TechRadar’s Global Editor in Chief, the latest in a long line of senior editorial roles he’s held in a career that started the week that Google launched (nice of them to mark the occasion). Prior to joining TR, he was UK Editor in Chief on Tom’s Guide, where he oversaw all gaming, streaming, audio, TV, entertainment, how-to and cameras coverage. He's also a former editor of the tech website Stuff and spent five years at the music magazine NME, where his duties mainly involved spoiling other people’s fun. He’s based in London, and has tested and written about phones, tablets, wearables, streaming boxes, smart home devices, Bluetooth speakers, headphones, games, TVs, cameras and pretty much every other type of gadget you can think of. An avid photographer, Marc likes nothing better than taking pictures of very small things (bugs, his daughters) or very big things (distant galaxies). He also enjoys live music, gaming, cycling, and beating Wordle (he authors the daily Wordle today page).
