Happy Tuesday, Jumble friends! Today’s puzzle was similar to yesterday’s game where all of the clue words were returning favorites and one of the anagrams had been used before. VUMEA was scrambled the exact same way the last time we saw it on 8/1/18, but it wasn’t enough to foil this savvy solver! GOACCN was the anagram that did me in and, quite honestly, stumped me enough to make me move on with my solve and back into it later. I don’t like skipping any of the clue words before attempting the final solve but we all have “one of those days” where things don’t go according to plan. After finishing the entire puzzle, I found out that COGNAC was our oldest clue word of the day (6/28/17) and MAUVE was our most recent.
Our cartoon brings us to an interrogation room where we encounter three Jumble characters. Jeff decided to give us an extreme close up view of the characters which left no additional space for any type of background scenery. The dialogue was straightforward and these FBI Agents are certain that they have enough information of this mans wrongdoings that they want him to give a full confession. Rather than spill the beans, he clams up and decides that silence might be his best, and only defense. Nothing jumped out at me as far as extra details go, but the mans palms facing upwards gave us a good indication that he’s guilty as charged!
The final solve was an anagram consisting of 9-letters but it wasn’t jumbled enough to keep the answer well hidden. The first 5-letters brought COME into view leaving CLEAN to be found to finish it off. It’s been an easy start to the week so hopefully the difficulty level will increase in the next day or two. Have a terrific Tuesday, and I’ll see you right back here tomorrow!
