NYT Spelling Bee 11-4-20 final

What a wild ride this day has been! I mean this puzzle has been. It started off looking pretty simple. I mean 97 points for genius and an R in the middle. What could go wrong?

I tried and failed over and over at getting the pangram. More on that later.

Yesterday I missed only one word I feel I should have gotten: CATTY.

Then there were eyeroll words: TECHY, YECCH, YENTE (with an E rather than with an A).

And finally the words that are new:
EYETEETH: Canines in the upper jaw?! Give me a break.
TETCHY: Touchy?!?!

All kinds of silliness.

I kept working on today’s pangram. I could not figure it out. I got some long words but came up short over and over.

Until I got one. And then another.

Final score: 23 words for 105 points.
Genius minimum: 97 points.
First word: CHAIR
Pangrams: ARCHRIVAL (first), ARCHIVAL (a little while later).
Glaring omissions VARIAL.

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).
