NYT Spelling Bee 11-3-20 final

Setting aside the madness going on tonight with Trump declaring himself the victor at least twice with tens of millions of ballots left to be counted, we had a spelling bee to work on today.

It was a short puzzle today, but it was tricky.

Yesterday’s puzzle had a bunch I should have gotten: COCONUT, COOT, CUTOUT, INTO, INTUIT, MINT, MUNITION, OMIT, ONTO, TUNIC, UNTO.

There were a couple I knew but didn’t think to think of: MONOTONIC, MUNITION.

But there were two new to me:

TINCT: Tint?!??!?!?!?
TOMTIT: A popular(?!) name for any of a number of small active songbirds.

Today I made genius level somehow. I can’t really even with this one tonight.

Final score: 21 words for 102 points.
Genius minimum: 95
First word: YEAH
Pangram: CHANTEY (variant of shanty)
Missed opportunities: YEET, CHYEAH, NYET

Hope for good things in the morning. Love you all.

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).
