NYT Spelling Bee 3-22-21 final

My bracket is way, way, way busted. The random approach was interesting and worth trying, but it didn’t work this year. Next year I’ll try the random approach and the educated guess approach and see which works better.


Meatier Misses

LUNETTE: An arched aperture or window, especially one in a domed ceiling.

From Historic New England

POULT: A young domestic chicken, turkey, pheasant, or other fowl being raised for food. I guess ones that have given up, though. Otherwise they’d be poultry.
PULE: Cry querulously or weakly.
TOLUENE: A colorless liquid hydrocarbon present in coal tar and petroleum and used as a solvent and in organic synthesis.
TUPELO: A North American or Asian tree of damp and swampy habitats, which yields useful timber.

Arbor Day this year is April 30.

Today’s summary

Final score: 39 words for 187 points.
Genius minimum: 183 points.
First word: MANIAC.
Pangram: INTIMACY.

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).
