Squander Scrabble

The Word 'Squander' on a scrabble board

During a game of Scrabble with Sarah, I managed a whopping 221 points in a single play with the word ‘Squander.’ This is a personal record for me, so I’m a bit excited about it.

If you’re wondering how I scored it:

The word is worth 19 points because A1 is on a double letter score, and the word falls across two triple word scores, which triples the points to 57 total and then re-triples them to 171 points. I also gained a 50-point bonus for using all seven tiles. Ergo: 221 points.

Not that I’m bragging or anything. Maybe a little.

Maybe a lot,
