Games with KF-C, cool rack - Yet Another Scrabble Blog
Games with KF-C, cool rack
Split games with Kate at lunch today. 

The first game I bingo three times in 5 turns (easy stuff like VIOLATER, TRUDGES, and LITOTES), to be up a gob.  Then I draw my first blank and completely give the game away.  I did everything within my power to lose it.  Opened up multiple scoring spots on a closed board, missed bingoes, mistracked, went way low on time.  It was ugly ugly ugly.

The second game, I won pretty handily, as I was drawing balance and synergy and she had ugly racks with hard choices.  I played well, I guess, but it wasn't the biggest triumph in the world.

So anyway, none of this is interesting, so I will give you one of my racks.


If you find them all I will give you a lollypop.  I didn't find one of them (this was in our first game).  I know a handful of them, but they are all weird and pretty low prob (the lowest being 9169).

I am leaving work presently to go home and finish packing our truck in -million degree weather.  Tomorrow, it's work, and then leaving straight to drive to NC in the snow and infinite cold.  Come Wednesday I will be a North Carolina resident.

It has definitely been tough going. We stopped about 10 last night and started back 5 this morning. On my way to work now, but the bulk of everything is loaded. Ugh.

Happy Hyoidal to you as well. Tell KC I said hi.

Hyoidal + P = HAPLOIDY

Thanks. I think the worst is over. Now let's see how the drive in the snow goes.

I'm interested in what (other) people consider high, low, medium probability.

I guess I mostly use top 10000 is high, next 10000 is medium, next 10000 (or fraction thereof) is low. For Sowpods I'd probably go in thirds as well.

PS I missed ALLELIC, nice list :)
