NYT Spelling Bee 4-28-21 final

First off, with so many games that have finished without me making it to genius level, either I’m getting worse at this game, or there’s been a rejiggering of point requirements.

We finished The Prisoner tonight. Was the ending worth the episodes? Do we know who is Number 1?

Spoiler Alert!

It’s Nelly.

Yesterday I missed OPTIMAL! UGH. Also I missed ATILT, IMAM, IOTA, LAMA, LOAM, MILITIA, MOOLA, OPTIMA, PALAPA, TAILLAMP, and TOMATILLO.

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).
