NYT Spelling Bee 11-30-20 final

Hello from Day 12 of the current California COVID curfew. The rules are changing a little bit, but they’re not getting any less restrictive.

Yesterday’s misses were pretty good.

Great words like ATTAINT, BIENNIA (two-year blocks), IAMB, IAMBI, MINIM, MINIMA, TIBIAE.
I should have gotten ANTI, IMITATE, INNATE, MEANIE, MEANTIME, MITT, NINETEEN, TEATIME.

TANNIN: A yellowish or brownish bitter-tasting organic substance present in some galls, barks, and other plant tissues, consisting of derivatives of gallic acid, used in leather production and ink manufacture.
TATAMI: EVERY TIME! A rush-covered straw mat forming a traditional Japanese floor covering. I feel like I need to get one to remember it.

Today was significantly faster than yesterday.

Final score: 36 words for 147 points.
Genius minimum: 146 points.
First word: THROUGHOUT
Pangrams: OUTGROWTH, WROUGHT
Bad spellings: WORTHOG isn’t WARTHOG.

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).
