Super Scrabble

This last weekend we broke in the new Super Scrabble board we received as a wedding gift. Sure, it was 110 degress in our living room. We still had one room with air conditioning, and a board with Quadruple Word Score spaces on it. Quadruple Word Score. Can you even imagine such a thing? The combined scores of this game soared over 1000 points. There are 200 tiles, double the number of almost every letter. That’s two Z’s, two J’s and four blank tiles. It was a thing of beauty. The honor of scoring the First Ever In My Apartment Quadruple Word Score went to Sarah, who was, coincidentally playing her very first game of Scrabble ever. The wonders never cease.
