Mark and I had no time to play Scrabble with each other during the Scrabble Players Championship in Baltimore and we only had our first game when we arrived in Washington. We played seven games, four in DC and three in Delaware. I won all of them, averaging 434 to Mark’s 362. Here is the bingo breakdown:
|SENARII (66)||TENNERs (60)|
|PHIlTRE (80)||CREaMING (76)|
|VAUlTERS (83)||HORNIEST (74)|
|SNATCHER (92)||YEARNED (79)|
|CAESIOUS (64)||HOLIEST (78)|
|JOTTERS (76)||BANTERER (90)|
|RoGATIONS (72)||STRIDeS (62)|
I played RoGATIONS through the -ON-.
I played four bingos in two games, one being our very first game in Washington where I opened with SENARII. I scored 531. In the other game my first three plays were ReDLEGS, ESTATING and PETALOUS, reaching 212 after three turns. I followed those by a late MANIPLES. My score was 503, while Mark lost with a respectable 440 and scoring just one bingo with YEARNED.
I won one game by one point, 363-362, where the only winning outplay required me to play a two-word overlap with AEIT? starting with TE-. I found TEnIA to win. TElIA and TErAI would also win.
I played SANSERIF from the first S-.
