Today was the first really long puzzle in a while. I still don’t like it. Where is Queen Bee? I don’t want to find out if I have to drop 80 words on the puzzle.
While I was up in arms yesterday about DEGLAZE/D, I had tried ILLEGALIZE/D without success, so I figured that neither was a word. Errantly, as Lauren pointed out to me.
The two that kept me from Queen Bee yesterday were IDEALIZE and IDEALIZED.
Final score: 52 words for 208 points.
Genius minimum: 207 points.
First word: IMMINENTLY
Pangrams: IMMINENTLY, EMINENTLY
Missed opportunities: LIMEY, MILLE, LIMELITE
