NYT Spelling Bee 8-17-20 final

And to think I was going to quit! I had been stuck awhile, but then my sister (twitter.com/raablauren) sent me a screenshot that she had finished the puzzle today.

The only thing I quit was quitting.

I got close with TIBIAL. Finally, I got PANINI for the win. Cutting it fine with less than an hour to go.

My final was 43 words for 173 points.

Lauren’s score when she sent it to me was 43 words for 173 points.

It’s going to be a fun tomorrow because we’ll each get to see how we got the same score but probably didn’t miss all the same words.

The puzzle folks don’t seem to care for TALIT/TALLIT. But I can shrug that off.

New puzzle starts soon.

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).
