Scrabble

I play Scrabble on Friday evenings at my local Scrabble club. We are only a small group, with six members, but we manage two tournaments a year – one with a handicap, which I actually won this year, I don’t know how – and the other one scratch. It is about 6 years since I last won a trophy, as we have a younger member with a brilliant memory who usually wins. I wish I could remember all the new three-letter words. I still can’t memorise the old ones, let alone learn new ones. Those of you who play the game will understand how useful they are for making add-on words (adding to a two-letter one) so you can, hopefully, put down your ‘bonus’ (seven-letter word that gives an extra fifty points) on the board. I spend ages every day playing it on my Kindle Fire, playing about twelve different games. One advantage of playing on that is it tells me the best word I could have made. Sometimes, I have to kick myself for not noticing it, but often, I have never heard of the word. Some, like, ‘YOHIMBE’ and ‘KYLICES’ mean nothing to me at all. I need to look them up in my Scrabble dictionary. A job for later.
