Mean Scrabble Guy?


Last night, I got on the best Scrabble roll ever. After having to pass in the opening round because I had drawn all consonants, I racked up 429 points (a personal best) in a two player game, punishing Diane mercilessly. Everything fell into place perfectly. When I had to settle for making "quint" because I couldn't place uber-word "quartz", I was immediately rewarded with an "s" on my draw so on my next turn, I created "squint" and got to the triple-word score. It was a thing of beauty. Diane was positively rolling her eyes when I made "electron" to use all my letters for the second time. To be fair, we split the blanks and she drew at least one of the 8+ point letters in her hand... But, I consistently drew "s" tiles throughout the game, and Diane maybe got one all night. That made for a huge advantage.
