Not a spoil-sport, just a baby!
Hey people help! How does anyone handle this situation: for a run of 4 or 5 games straight, no matter what, every draw i take nets me single point tiles. My worthy opponent reaches into the bag and finds F's and H's. and J's and P's and the X and the Z, 3 s's and at least one blank etc. I reach into the bag and return with 2 U's 3 I's some T's and R's. I can stay fairly even for a while playing off her high point tiles, but as the game goes on the single pointers just can't do it.
It's frustrating, and I end up grumbling and mumbling as a 5 year old would. The law of averages says this can't happen game after game-but it does. The next 5 or 6 games we draw even tiles and I generally come out ahead. However, I never get a game where I end up with the high pointers! (keep in mind that I play War with my 10 year old grandson and have lost 31 straight- honest). I love winning and hate losing, but all I ask is that I have a competitive scrabble game to make it fun.
How do I keep from "losing my cool" !!!
