Featured Nyt Spelling Bee Answer

The New York Times Spelling Bee is similar to games that feature a scrambled up set of letters that you have to find words within (or a word using all the letters!), but there’s a maddening twist–you can use letters more than once and all words must contain the letter in the center of the hive. If you’ve been scratching your head for a bit because you can’t get all the words for today’s Spelling Bee puzzle, we’ll help you out.

How to Play New York Times Spelling Bee

Below, you’ll find a list of rules and requirements to play the game.

  • Words must include the center letter of the hive (this letter has a yellow background).
  • No obscure words, no hyphenated words, no proper nouns, and no cuss words!
  • Letters can be used once (this is key to high scores!)
  • Words must contain 4 letters or more.
  • You must have a paid subscription to New York Times’ Games ($40/year, also available for a monthly fee).

Spelling Bee Tips

It will take some practice to get a feel for and get used to how the Spelling Bee is formatted, because trying to remember that you can use letters twice is quite the twist and requires you to visualize those extra possibilities mentally rather than visually on the screen in front of you. Here are some more tips that we have found useful in solving for words:

  • Look for prefixes and suffixes — that means things like re- (like renew), -ed (past tense of many words, like fixed), etc. These can be used multiple times and can help you find higher scoring words quickly.
  • Look for words that can be combined — while no hyphenation is allowed, there are words that are one word that really look like two, like “lifeline.”
  • Start with the required letter in the center first, and then start building out your words.
