General information

INFO: A word to play is in CAPITALS. Letters already on the board are shown as the S here: WORM(S). Premium Score squares: DL = Double letter: TL = Triple letter: DW = Double Word: TW = Triple Word. The blanks have no score letter on the Top right! A bingo (using all 7 of your letters) gets +35.
Useful word lists are in the first post "ALL MY TIPS. This is the post to read first" and on some other posts. I welcome comments and suggestions.
Had a great play, score or a move you think should have been allowed? Take a screen shot and post it somewhere (Picasa?). Send me the link.

Word Finders and Word Checkers

Here are some that I know about. To say what could be used or not is really up to the players. Using one without consent is cheating. If I was to offer a suggestion then should I use one and see a word I knew then I might use it but if it was gobblydegook then I would not.

I do feel that save for, using the pure cheat like the LEXICAL WORD FINDER, most reasonable players can do better because PLACEMENT is more than half the problem.

These are just some of them -
