Scrabble tips to make your opponent hate you


Having good luck and a decent vocabulary might be enough to win you a game of Scrabble, but what if you’re against a particularly formidable opponent, or a relative you really don’t like and would like to wipe the floor with? Fortune and anagrammatical skills will only get you so far; here are my top three tips for really sticking it to your opponent.

#3 - Use a word that looks mis-spelt

Here’s a short list of perfectly valid Scrabble words, but which your opponent will presume you’ve spelt incorrectly. They, of course, will challenge you and reach for the Scrabble dictionary. You, on the other hand, will sit back smugly, knowing that you’ve just earnt yourself an extra turn. Of course, try this trick more than once and your opponent will call your bluff and allow all of your weird words through, unchallenged. This, in turn, will give you the chance to use bogus words like cromulent, embiggens and kwyjibo.

There are piles of words in the Scrabble , that fit the description; these are just a few examples.

AMUCK APATITE ASBESTUS ASPERATE COALA CHICKORY CIGARET CUNDUM CUTLAS CYDER DORNOCK DROWND FANTOM GALIVANT GOODBY GREWSOME JALOPY KREEP KULTUR KUMQUAT MUSTACHE PEEPUL PENCEL PENSIL RABBET SKEEING SYCOSIS

#2 - “Q” words without the “U”

So you’ve picked up the dreaded Q tile, but no matter how many tiles you get rid of, you just can’t pick up the U. It doesn’t have to be the end of the world, there are plenty of words you can use without a U following the Q. Just don’t expect me to tell you what these words mean.
