When you’re playing Scrabble, and you’ve got an open ‘P’ to end your word, and you’ve seen a lot of made up words for the last couple of turns, and you’ve got two other folks agreeing with you that your only chance of winning is to go out using a made up word consisting of your remaining letters (G, L, U), what word would you play?

Yeah, I should have played that.

(At least I couldn’t have won with a word like ‘predict’ or something… wink, wink)

    Um. What about “Gulp?” Or is that too obvious?

    BTW, never play Scrabble with the Fogelsons unless you have an official Scrabble Dictionary handy. Also set ground rules about how naughty the words can be.

    I’ve seen things…

    I was waiting for Fogey to repsond, but since he apparently is not going to…

    Yes, the second I played the tiles and confirmed with Ben that I wanted him to look up ‘GLUP’, he says “Huh, could’ve played GULP, but ya know…”

    Duly noted on your seeings. We played with close by.

    Of course, I pointed this out AFTER looking it up, so that you would have to remove it and forfeit the turn. You played well and won despite my killer move… JEST – The S was a blank pluralizing EQUIP, the J was on double letter, and the T on triple word. 70 points baby! Bam! does scrabble nasty

    no. doesn’t work because that only tells you how words are spelled, not if the words are acceptable to use under the rules of scrabble.

    Also fun is to play scrabble “with balls” which means by the rules, which further means the only time people be looking crap up is if there be a challenge. ARRrrr!

    yes. does work because it tell you if a word is legitimate under the rules of scrabble.
    FYI, we only looked up words that were challenged – and “crap” was not one of them.
