Today’s puzzle was a huge letdown after yesterday’s Queen Bee finish. I wish I could go into the ones I missed yesterday, but I can’t, since, you know Queen Bee–didn’t miss any.
I strode into today like I had it all figured out. Then I saw that genius minimum was 71. So either it’s ridiculously difficult, or I get two Queen Bees in a row.
Yeah it definitely wasn’t the latter of the two.
First of all, they refuse to recognize PENNETTE pasta. As Tommy Wiseau would say, “They are completely off the wall!”
I did get to genius level, but it was a struggle. I got nowhere close to Queen Bee.
Final score: 22 words for 74 points.
