Things I learned at club this week

I1. IAMBI is a great word.
2. ADEEKIM makes a word with an R.
3. AGOS* isn't good (luckily I got away with it)
4. BAIRD* also isn't good (argh)
5. DANCINGS* isn't good either (double argh)
6. When someone plays a word near the end of the game that puts them ahead 80 points (see above), you should probably challenge it if you're unsure if it's a phony.
7. Don't add insult to injury by giving them a spot to play a third bingo against you on the last play.

Things I leaned at scrabble club this week

1. MIT* still isn't a valid 3. Argh. 
2. SARCOID takes an S. Aargh. 
3. DERRICK is a word. (Didn't know it) 
4. ENVISAGE is good. (As a bright spot, a guess for a bingo outplay. Still lost though)

The newest 7 letter scrabble word: BEILNTS

NIBLETS (and NIBLET) were just announced as the two words of 8 letters or less (i.e. most likely to be played) that were incorrectly omitted from the new tournament word list. There was also a list of 24 words under 8 letters that should be deleted. 

Found word OTD: AABMNRTU

RAMBUTAN the edible fruit of the Malayan tree. (Gotta love Asian food markets!)

Sneaky second quiz: TEXTURE

It's a new one! URTEXTE+. Previously only URTEXT(S) was playable. 

Refers to the original text, as of a musical score or a literary work.
