friedo: lincoln65: Scrabble is only half about the score.
The other half is putting down weird words like aqueous or euouae and saying "fark you, vowels!"

One of my favorites is BIKINI because for some reason I always get stuck with a rack full of I's.

If you'd keep your i's off the rack in the bikini you wouldn't get stuck.

/I have no idea what that means.

hp6sa: Curt Blizzah: Why are C's worth so much?

C's are a pain because there are no two-letter words to hang another word from them. Same with V's.

Z's are a lot easier to use now that "ZA" was added to the Scrabble lexicon.

I had to look it up to believe it. Scrabble, you whore. You used to have values. You've let WWF turn you into everything you once hated.

I go by the Snoop Dog dictionary, so I use a shizzle ton of zs my bizzles.

While their effort to sway Hasbro is well intentioned, it is quixotic.
