NYT Spelling Bee 10-8-20 final

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.
First word found: UNKEMPT (pangram!)

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).
