Scrabble Consensus Game - Move 8

Post by Charlie Reams » Fri Mar 12, 2010 2:02 am

So Matt's excellent spot of REMINT for 33 won out, as Quackle replies with JOLLS for 24. It now leads 359-226, but we're still in with an outside chance while that second blank remains available. Voting closes 23:59 on Friday; over to you.

6F VAW gives us 23 leaves us BLUG. Not great, but it's a start. Maybe.

Pretty sure quackle has at least 1 more S.
We are screwed with those letters.
Most moves risk closing the board.
Keep the A and change 6.

Placing VAW at C7a scores 28.
