NYT Spelling Bee 12-13-20 final

Hello from Day 25 of the current California COVID constant curfew. And happy fourth night of Chanukah!

Yesterday I missed BOHO, BOOR, GROG, HORROR, OUGHT, ROTOR, THOROUGH, THOU, THROUGH, and TOUR. I really feel like some of these just weren’t grabbed but that I’d gotten them. Strange.

Meatier misses

BOURG: historical A town or village under the shadow of a castle. Hooray for historical words that nobody uses!
BURBOT: An elongated bottom-dwelling fish that is the only member of the cod family that lives in fresh water. It occurs in Eurasia and North America, but is almost extinct in Britain.

No scales. Burbot is not kosher.

BURGOO: A stew or thick soup, typically made for an outdoor meal.
BURRO: A small donkey used as a pack animal.
OUTGO: Indian The outlay of money.
ROTGUT: Poor-quality and potentially toxic alcoholic liquor.
TROTH: archaic, formal Faith or loyalty when pledged in a solemn agreement or undertaking. I guess like betroth.

Today’s summary

Final score: 25 words for 107 points.
Genius minimum: 103 points.
First word: LAUNCH
Pangram: UNLATCH

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).
