NYT Thursday Puzzle – April 2, 2015

NYT Thursday Puzzle - April 2, 2015

Theme: Anagrams and Synonyms. Four answers are synonyms for THUS, which is spelled out by the black squares on the grid, and three anagrams.

1A. Cabanas (HUTS)
8D. Rear (TUSH)
21A. Seal (SHUT)
26D. Ergo (THUS)

Though I pretty quickly realized that anagrams would be involved, it took me a little while to figure out the synonyms aspect. Overall, a pretty easy puzzle for a Thursday.

In the “you learn something new every day” category:
4-Down. Tropical palm. Answer: Areca
9-Down. Thessaly’s Mount _____. Answer: Ossa
