NYT Spelling Bee 11-24-20 final

Hello from Day 6 of the current California COVID Curfew!

I got all the way to genius from my phone from bed last night. So I continued from my computer today and thought I’d try for Queen Bee. I gave up on that but don’t know how far away I got.


I don’t know these words that NYT Spelling Bee accepts.

CANNA: A tropical American plant with bright flowers and ornamental broad, flat leaves. Oh, right. I’ve missed canna lily before.
CANTATA: A medium-length narrative piece of music for voices with instrumental accompaniment, typically with solos, chorus, and orchestra.
CAPON: A castrated male chicken fattened for eating. Wait, what?
NATANT: Swimming or floating.
OCTANT: An arc of a circle equal to one eighth of its circumference, or the area enclosed by such an arc with two radii of the circle.

Today’s Spelling Bee had fewer glaring omissions.

Final score: 39 words for 183 points.
Genius minimum: 160 points.
First word: GUILED
Pangram: GUILTED
Snubs: ILLEGIT. LEGIT is OK. ILLEGIT is not? Wack.

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).
