Yesterday I missed CIRRI, CITRIC, LILT, TORII, TRICOLOR, and TRIO.
OCOTILLO: A spiny scarlet-flowered desert shrub of the southwestern US and Mexico, which is sometimes planted as a hedge.
ROTOTILL: Break up or till (soil) using a rototiller.
VIOL: A musical instrument of the Renaissance and baroque periods, typically six-stringed, held vertically and played with a bow.
Final score: 32 words for 169 points. Yay! 25 and 132! Can you feel the powers?!
Genius minimum: 160 points.
First word: MAYORAL.
