I have run out of words. And after waking up pretty much fine and being good throughout the day, I’m back to having a stuffy head but worse than yesterday. It’s hard to keep my eyelids open to write this.
But I don’t know what I’ve missed for Queen Bee, but I’ve finally given up. I’ve gone almost 80 points past genius minimum. Still no Queen Bee.
Yesterday I missed RUMORING (the third pangram), GOUGING, MOOING, NOGGIN, NOIR, ONGOING, ONION, ORIGIN. RIGOR, and UNMOOR.
GORGON: Greek Mythology Each of three sisters, Stheno, Euryale, and Medusa, with snakes for hair, who had the power to turn anyone who looked at them to stone.
Final score: 65 words for 273 points.
Genius minimum: 196 points.
First word: BLOTTO.
