XEROX – can land both X’s on Triple Letter Scores

April 7th, 2010 at 9:57 pm

I remember a relative managed to get the word QUIZ on a double letter and triple word score making 96, greater than my combined score at the time – I felt like setting fire to the stupid game right in front of him!

Embiggen. Reaaally, now. I don’t know whether to feel sorry for Marcus or slap him in the face.
I love how using poper nouns will increase his vocab. Like, lawlwut.
I’ve only played Scrabble like, twice, with my grandma, when I was like, 10. We did not use points. Too much work.

A noble spirit embiggens the smallest man!
Simpsons ftw!

Tried googling embiggen: ‘prebilabial intensifying verbal circumfix’. That ought to get you triple word score at least twice. On both boards.

The thing that I don’t here is, why Mattel did this. Since at the same time, they will keep selling the old version.

The latest version of Scrabble had some ‘extra game modes’ in the manual. Why not supplement that manual with the rule to use names and such?

Oh, wait, they want to sell the same shit just in a different package.

and if we discuss scores: scoring 150+ points for a single word (2x triple word score) in a game made my GF look sad, until she did exactly the same on the other end of the board…

I clearly suck at Scrabble then!
