NYT Spelling Bee 8-5-20

Argh so close with this one!

I’m at 41 words and 117 points. I just need 16 points to get to genius.

When I was going through, I saw that the words mazel and mazal both were there. I use mazal because it’s closer to the original word, but I tried mazel first because I’ve seen that used more, and I figured NYT would go for that one first.

But nope! No mazel.

So NYT was on MY side: it’s mazal!

What mazal!

Nope. Nothing doing with mazal.

They should have both spellings, not neither!

I saw this morning that the notaspellingbeeword Twitter had gone through the same mazal/mazel challenge: https://twitter.com/Notaspellingbe1/status/1290973710728364033?s=19

That made me happy.

About raabidfun

I'm a guy living the #raabidfun lifestyle. I figured I would create a blog about crossword puzzles I do. The idea is to do the NYT crossword and the WSJ crossword daily as much as I can. That includes when I don't finish and have clearly failed. They can be difficult. Also I am not an attorney, and any legal analysis in this blog reflects my interpretation, which means it can be flawed and should not be relied upon for use in legal matters (especially against me).
