Circ Jockeys #106 – Six Points? Top Score!

Intervention Con was this weekend. I played a lot of Scrabble. Six and a half games (one got interrupted by Super Art Fight) and I am currently undefeated…. even if Dern thinks that I’m making up two letter words.

I believe that QUARTZY is the best possible opening play, while double blanks would be the worst. OXYPHENBUTAZONE is widely believed to be the best possible word to play, though it never has been played in sanctioned Scrabble. The best word played in sanctioned Srabble was QUIXOTRY on a Triple-Triple for 365 points.

I’d like to give a shout out to Kevin and Blondie over at Caf-fiends, Ross of Super Art Fight and The System, and Dern & Prindiville of Hello With Cheese for being generally cool people and helping to make my first con a good one.

I should probably add a link to Prindiville’s own site as he is no longer the artist for Hellow With Cheese.

Later all.

-Steve
