My wife and I are avid but amateur Scrabble players. Rarely, if ever, do we score upwards of 90 points, even on a bingo (all seven tiles used).
So I was incredulous today when I was able to play the word ‘RELAXING’ on the left margin of the board. Triple triple for the word, plus double triple triple for the ‘X’ plus 50 points for the bingo. Total 257 points.
My wife immediately conceded the game.
