Hi everybody! Could you help me on that phrase: "It was like a massive three-dimensional puzzle, but it beat sitting in the office watching the news with Oscar.".What's the meaning of the word beat here?Is it an adective in this case? Thank you

    In this sentence it does mean to be more enjoyable than; in general it means "to be better than."
