I Sympathise with Players Who Wish They Could Use a Wordfinder in Scrabble

Sympathize

Still puzzled? Let’s go back to those seven Scrabble tiles on the player’s rack I posted yesterday.

Tile rack

Player had these seven tiles on her tile rack. There is an 8-letter word that can be played using all these tiles.

It can be hard to think of a 7-letter word using only one vowel let alone making an 8-letter word using a tile already on the board. If you got it, 333 ‘well dones’.  In competitive tournament games, it is not easy to think of such a word when the timer is ticking down the minutes during a game. However, this was a friendly club game and there was still the pressure to think of a word before the bell rang. For many players, it is hard not to be able to use a word checker. I can sympathise.

Scrabble Game

Pretzels. Word was played across two premium triple-word squares to score 333 points.
