137 point play. 35 points for using all 7 letters combined with a double and triple word score and a triple letter score on the R. What is your best?
116 points. Pretty good. This one includes the Q on the triple letter for 30 points plus a triple word score for “quits” for 3 X 35 = 105. Combine that with 11 points for “sleave” and that is 116 points total.
111 points for playing “beached”. 35 points for playing all 7 letters, triple word score on the “C” and “E” for 23 points, multiplied by the triple word score for 69 points. Add in the words “er” and “de” and that is another 7 points for a total of 111 points.
A good use of two double word squares and playing all 7 letters.
A very generous opening provided by this opponent to allow for a triple letter score on the Z multiplied by a triple word score on “gauze.”
A 101 point play with implore. Used all 7 letters for 35 points, a triple letter score on the P and O for 15 points, plus a triple word score on the implore for 60 points, plus two other words that made up 6 more points.
A 103 point play with four letters. The key here is the triple letter score on the J for 30 points plus a triple word score of 99 points. Add in the 4 points from Tore and it’s 103 points.
Didn’t know “dewaxes” is a word but I’m sure the word scrambler somebody used here did. The big play here is the double word score used twice plus all seven letters for 35 points. “Guns” nets 8 points and the double word score on two tiles nets 72 points (4 X 18) for 115 points total.
This is an impressive play with all 7 letters. 35 points for using all 7 letters, 6 points for “Rif” and 92 points (23 * 4) for “Jerkily” which is sitting on two double word tiles.
Excellent use of the triple word score combined with the triple letter score. The J is on the triple word tile for 30 points combined with “Rioja” triple word score for 99 points (33 * 3). The last points were from “Aw” for 4 points. Now use Rioja in a sentence.
It’s always a mystery why a player would open up the opportunity for someone to use the Double Word score on two words especially with the word maxi which carries 14 points. To make matters worse this same player provided the opportunity to use two Double Word scores with 5 tiles. This player not only had one S to capitalize but two which enabled the player to use all seven letters for 35 points. “Maxis” scores 30 with the Double Word score and “Shields” nets 44 points by utilizing two Double Word scores. Players simply cannot setup other players with these opportunities.
The point total isn’t high here but get honorable mention for such a high score with one word and letters with low values. This one is a 7 letter play for 35 points, Triple Letter scores on the E and C combined with a Triple Word score for 63 points.
Another classic mistake by someone who chose to net a 7 point play that allowed multiple plays for their opponent on the either Triple Word spot. Everyone loves to get the 10 point letters on the Triple Letter but it’s even better when it’s combined with the Triple Word. Here this person got the Q on Triple Letter and “Aquae” on the Triple Word score for 105 points.
