Veva and I have been playing Scrabble lots lately....
A few weeks ago I was delighted to put down this word
Nothing terribly special, except that I was able to put it across the board in such a way that both the V and the G were on double word spaces - so I got a quadruple word score! That was the first time I had ever done that.
But this accomplishment was nothing compared to last night.
On Veva's first turn she put down BREEZES - 7 letter word -> 106 points!
I immediately countered on MY first turn with SOUTHING - another 7 letter word but "only" 74 points.
Well, from there my game definitely took a turn for the worse; I ended up with only 298 points.
But Veva...Veva...she never slowed down. She came up with a SECOND 7 letter word score: DIVERTED, good for another 70 points, followed that by CREW on a triple word score that netted 48 points and....
She ended up with a score of 437 points, an average score per turn of 21 points!
That was a lot of fun, though I have to admit I would have had MORE fun if I was the one who got 437 points.
