The answers to today’s Strands, game #50, are…

  • MAGE
  • BARD

  • My rating: Moderate
  • My score: Perfect

That’s more like it. After I really struggled to solve yesterday’s Strands and ended up needing two hints, I found this to be a lot more straightforward. That said, you may well not have done – because how easy it was for you will have depended on your knowledge of the fantasy genre. Mine is pretty strong, so once I found KNIGHT and then MAGE, both of which relatively obvious, I was able to knock them off one by one with no mishaps.
