NYT Spelling Bee 11-12-20 final

The curse has been reversed! I’m back to genius level!

Yesterday I missed some pretty good ones. One of those was a pangram: PROPAGANDA. It’s crazy that I hadn’t thought of propaganda. It’s all we see from the White House now (and for the last four years).

Then there were the words I just didn’t think of: ANGORA, DOGNAP, DRAGOON, PARADROP, RONDO, ROOD

Of course the only ones that matter are the ones I am unfamiliar with:
AGORA: (in ancient Greece) a public open space used for assemblies and markets.
GORGON: Greek Mythology: Each of three sisters, Stheno, Euryale, and Medusa, with snakes for hair, who had the power to turn anyone who looked at them to stone. Medusa was killed by Perseus.
ORANG: SHORT FOR ORANGUTAN!!!!!!!!!!! Give me a break! Quick reminder that still no HORCHATA and no TORTA and no DOODOO.
PARADOR: Oh, right. A hotel in Spain owned and administered by the Spanish government. Still weird that this counts.

And for today’s return to genius…

Final score: 31 words for 109 points.
Genius minimum: 92 points.
Pangram: WILDCAT
First word: ITALIC
Missed opportunities: WILLCALL, CALC

Tomorrow is Friday the 13th. Be ready!

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).
