Success in Scrabble, or how to get 117 points with just one word.

Presenting New allowed scrabble words

 

With my daughter Suzanne I play scrabble.

We play by the book, under strict rules, except for allowing simultaneously both English and Dutch words that appear in English and Dutch dictionaries.

 

 

My all time high of 117 points was with the word jeep, the j having 10 points and being placed next to the already existing word hotty. We also replaced some missing tiles with cheap orange plastic. Still looking for the orignal wooden tiles measuring 12x12 mm. Our scrabble board is a US blue plastic foldable travel edition from the 1980s, one with square cubbyholes. Who will send us a spare baggie full of tiles?

 

 

 

These words are as of now officially allowed in scrabble either in Dutch or in English:

Ratuitzetjes = Trousseaus/trousseaux for a rat

Fezshow = fashionista affair for Fez hats

Hardytea = if it is hardly tea.

Gayduif = pigeon, apparently a bit homosexual
