Jess and David actually tied in the regular rounds of the bee and were brought back up for a runoff involving churrigueresque, Kierkegaardian, and götterdämmerung, among others.
All three winners qualify for the June 6th Finals!
Everyone is welcome at the next bee on March 7th.
These lovely people got some Word Beast t-shirts.
