  • My rating: Moderate
  • My score: Perfect

Though this Strands puzzle is not incredibly hard, it does have a more difficult spangram than most. SNAILMAIL as a term is now relatively widely used, sure, but it still seems a lot more informal than we’ve come to expect from Strands.

Otherwise, it’s not too bad. I really struggled to find MAGAZINE – it just wasn’t something I thought of as an item that gets delivered in the mail – but POSTCARD, PACKAGE and LETTER were all pretty easy.
