NYT Spelling Bee 10-30-20 final

Finally a return to a somewhat reasonable point minimum for genius!

But we’ll go over yesterday’s misses first.

LEONINE: This is a new word for me. It means of or resembling a lion or lions. Cool.
LINTEL: A horizontal support of timber, stone, concrete, or steel across the top of a door or window. Interestingly enough, this is the answer to a crossword clue today!
LOONIE: The Canadian one-dollar coin.
NONILLION: 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000
TITTLE: In huge contrast, this is a tiny amount or part of something.
TOILE: An early version of a finished garment made up in cheap material so that the design can be tested and perfected. Oh that’s how to spell it? I think I heard this on Project Runway.
TONTINE: Oh yeahhhh. This is the death pool.
TOONIE: The Canadian two-dollar coin.
WIENIE: Another spelling of weenie. Weird.
WINNOW: Remove the chaff from the grain.

Back to today:

I was really happy that FLIMFLAM was a word. I heard that word for the first time years ago watching an episode of Cheers! I was ready to tweet about it not being a word, but it went!

Final score: 44 words for 165 points
Genius minimum: 153 points
First word: FAMILIARLY

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).
