Thursday is my usual Scrabble day. There are 4 of us who try to meet regularly and play -- sometimes it is only 2 or 3 of us, and we have a fifth on our little mailing list but so far she has not made it.
This was the start of today's game. Nine moves in, I believe, and all five of the Big Letters are out. Q, X, Z, J and K are the one-of-a-kind letters worth lots of points. The rest of the game had to be anticlimactic after a start like that. (I did manage to make "exude" later in the game, which was pretty keen.)
I think I did not win this game, but they all pass in a bit of a blur, so I can't tell you if I lost by 10 points or 100. Which sometimes happens, I'm sorry to say!
