EESWFT = FEWEST
MANY PEOPLE SAW “STAR WARS” MULTIPLE TIMES AND GAVE IT – – –
VIRTRAWGEEES = GREAT “RE-VIEWS”
Happy Tuesday, Jumble geniuses! All of our clue words were trusty old favorites. The anagram for WIGGLE was the only one that we’ve definitely seen before leaving three brand new Jumbles to work through. Of the three, FEWEST took an extra second to decipher which makes it my pick for the most difficult anagram of the day. VISOR was a great Jumble too so I’ll choose it as the runner-up. TRACT was the oldest repeat of the bunch and was scrambled as CRTAT the last time we saw it on 3/14/18. VISOR was the freshest with a gameplay date of 10/18/18.
If you’re a Star Wars fan, Yoda really going to enjoy today’s cartoon! The setting is a darkened movie theater where we see three women getting ready to watch a movie. On the screen we see the opening crawl line of the iconic film “Star Wars”. Even if you’ve never seen the 1977 classic, chances are you immediately recognized this opening line and were able to identify the film without the help of the cartoon sentence.
My newspaper had today’s cartoon shaded almost entirely in black so I had to use an online version to catch the fine details. The theater has a total of 23 seated Jumble characters which includes the three woman that are exchanging dialogue. The middle woman is holding a tub of popcorn and we can see a “P” on the container. The woman on the far left has a giant handful of the snack and the woman on the far right is holding a drink cup with a straw sticking out of it. My favorite detail of the piece was the hair styling of the women. The feathered hair of the woman on the left gave the piece a dated feel which made it feel authentic.
The final solve was an anagram consisting of 12-letters which is two less than yesterday’s layout. The addition of the quotes made the solution a bit more challenging, but the dialogue and sentence offered numerous clues to help us out. The V at the front allowed me to instantly find VIEWS. With those letters crossed out, GREAT came shortly thereafter leaving RE to finish it off.
I’ll be away on vacation for the next couple of weeks so you’ll be in good hands with Angela keeping the party rolling. Have a terrific Tuesday, and I’ll see you in March!
