Played Scrabble this afternoon with my good friend Jeff Crandall. We are very evenly matched, which makes it so fun to play against each other. (Plus we just gossip and squeal like flaming queens the whole time).
Jeff won 2-1 in games. The scores:
Jeff: 329-433-358: 1120
Peter: 375-385-339: 1099
Only 21 points difference over three games. One turn. So close.
Some of our bingos (a 7+ letter word, earning a 50-point bonus): PERIGEE, SWEATIER, JUDGMENT, RETINAE, BURSTED, VERDANT, LUSTIER, LUMINES (oops! a phoney), STRENGTH, VENERABLE. Unfortunately, my play of "SLOSHER" was challenged, and ruled as unacceptable. Why isn't slosher a word? One *sloshes* a drink. One who sloshes a drink is a *slosher*. It seems perfectly logical to me. ~grin~
