Five-Letter Fiasco

As with all difficult word search puzzles, this one is not for the fainthearted. Hopefully solving this word search won’t make you quite as frustrated as this guy, but we don’t promise it will be easy!

There are 70 five-letter words hidden (in any direction) in this word search. But we don’t supply the word list.

Each word starts with one of the last five letters of the alphabet: V, W, X, Y, or Z. Remember, we warned you. This is probably the most difficult of all of our word find games!
