The best play out in our 3-person-kitchen-table-game in history...
D E L P N U *
My mother Rosemary and her boyfriend Steve, were in town this week, and of course, we play Scrabble until the wee hours. The final game, however, went down in my anecdotal record books as one of the best play out bingos I had ever witnessed in 5 years of social and competitive Scrabble.
I was comfortably leading with 240, Steve 176 and mom with 165 with no letters left in the bag. I held IISU, mom GINROW, and Steve held 7 tiles one of which was the last blank, DELNPU*. It was Steve's turn with no way to win in site, or at least I thought.
Study the board (with Steve's final play removed) and see if you can find where to put Steve's incredible bingo out play for 88 points and the win.
Anyone who gets the right answer and comes to Club deserves a special prize.
AND THAT SPECIAL FIRST PERSON TO CORRECTLY FIGURE IT OUT WAS MARTHA!!!
