Forum Thread: Frequency and Points Distribution

Long story, but I'll keep it short - does anybody have any ideas on calculating the points distribution for scrabble letters using the Albanian alphabet (which has 36 letters)? Secondary question is how many tiles should be used given that the alphabet contains 36, rather than 26? I've worked out the frequency distribution of the letters.

Forum Thread: Scrabble game help

playing scrabble currently with a buddy of mine and we're down to the last. I have six tiles and he has 2 tiles. He has 410 pts and I am on 393 pts. What would be my best play in this situation. I have seen some that give me 23, 26 pts but they are just not enough to offset the amt he will gain from spelling out his hand, and taking pts from my remaining tiles. Let me know when you can guys.

Forum Thread: TSP Compatability

Hi, Has anyone cracked the problem of missing tiles when running 'The Scrabble Player' program, which ceased to work from Windows XP onwards. I have managed to load it onto a memory stick and get it working, sort of, on Windows 7 but the tiles are still missing.

Forum Thread: multiple online games with the same player

hi, i prefer to delete multiple game requests that are randomly generated while playing someone online (especially if we are playing for the first time); however some people seem to think it's because i am shopping tiles and that is not the case. to eliminate this bias, i've decided to enter an "already playing" comment before deleting the subsequent game. thoughts?

Forum Thread: Prope names without intent?

Here's the scenario, if someone puts a word thinking and intending it to be a particular meaning, then that word is challenged and it turns out that it is not a real word, but instead is another word (in this case it turns out it was a name of a drug), then should the person still get the points? For example, someone puts 'agria' thinking it means a substrate. It is challenged and it turns out not to mean substrate. But upon further research it is the name of some drug. We're playing that pro...

Forum Thread: Your personal records

What are your proudest accomplishments? My highest scoring word was WHITENER for 176 points, played in the upper left corner. My longest word was NOVOCAINE for 92 points. I chained it off of "NO" that I had played two turns earlier :D My top scoring game was 452, but it was using the international words list so a bit different.

Forum Thread: Y! Literati Cheating and False Accusations of Cheating

I love playing Y! Literati. I worked hard on my own to go from a provisional player, a player with a 1500 rating, to a player with a rating well above 2100. One thing that greatly bothers me is the fact that there's so many out there who are quick to point the finger that you're cheating, especially when you use all 7 tiles and make 2 or 3 bingo bonuses during the game. It's not like a person has control over the letters are distributed or what letters are distributed for that matter.I've als...
