38/141 "Great" pretty quickly, but now bogging down. And yes, it's addictive...
Also no 'neoteny'. Amazing this is the same publication with the great crossword puzzles.

Got up to Amazing in practically no time. Taking a little longer to get to Genius.

Very slight spoiler on lack of using a certain letter
Spoiler:
Still haven't gotten U in there except as prefix UN.
