Happy Monday, everyone! At first I thought that Magician Mac King was making an appearance for the second day in a row, but the cartoon sentence revealed that it was a random teenager from the Jumble community. I’ve always thought that it would be interesting to see the same characters used over the course of a week in a comic strip type of fashion and the Thanksgiving holiday would have been the perfect opportunity to make it happen. Do you have any interest in seeing a story play out via the cartoon, and maybe have the words relate to the subject matter? The possibilities really are endless so let’s hear your ideas in the comments section down below!
All of today’s anagrams were arranged in alphabetical order. Their solutions have made an appearance in the game over the past couple of years making all of them repeats. NOYELL was by far the hardest for me to figure out but the double letter trick of separating similar letters made it a whole lot easier. The trick would have also worked on the other 6-letter anagram, VIRRDE, if you found yourself stuck on that one. The difficulty level of the anagrams was right on par with what we’ve come to expect on a Monday so that most likely means we’ll have some good challenges as we inch closer towards the weekend.
The setting for today’s panel is a dining room and we see three Jumble characters having an interaction. Two of the characters, a teenager and a middle-aged adult, are having an arm wrestling contest while the third character appears to be acting as the referee. The cartoon sentence and dialogue offered hints as to the relationship between the men, and discovering who-was-who was the key to a successful finish.
The final solve was an anagram consisting of 10-letters. The layout didn’t hide UNCLE quite enough, or maybe it was the discovery of the relationship in the cartoon that allowed me to decipher it so quickly. Either way, CRIED was right there for the finish resulting in an odd sounding but rather common idiom. Have a merry Monday, and I’ll see you right back here tomorrow!
