Get ready to rack your brains, because it's time for another Scrabble Challenge! I may have gone a little overboard on last week's challenge (there was over 25 anagrams to solve), so I'm slimming things down this week. This time, there's only one puzzle.
Use the rack of letters above to find the highest scoring move on the following board. Post your answer in the comments at the bottom of this page. But let's try and keep this fair—NO solver programs. Also, don't forget to check out the solutions to last week's puzzles below.
