Mark and I played nine games of Scrabble during our recent holiday in Nova Scotia and I won seven. Here is the bingo breakdown:
|OVErLAP (80)||FLeCKING (110)|
|UNOPENEd (63)||NaNNIES (60)|
|DANCIEST (70)||TANGLER (66)|
|TREEING (66)||sTILtED (80)|
|ISOLATE (69)||POTTERS (88)|
|MEASLED (71)||ENDORSEE (64)|
In our first game I played five bingos (the first five on the chart) and the game was still young. I felt I had a chance to play six legitimate bingos in a single game. My record is six which I achieved only once, but one of them was a phony. Six bingos was not to be, but I did score 556.
In one game I forwent playing a bingo, BAnKSIA (74), and played KABS (63) instead. By playing those four tiles I still emptied the bag, and got the clunky INUW. Had I played the bingo, it would have given Mark an opportunity to play out with GOONIeR, underlapping its last two tiles under the BA in BAnKSIA, and win.
