(November 17, 2019) 18 Scrabblers at the Asheville club this week! Welcome back to John who has visited us from Illinois before. John had 3 good wins in a row, all scoring over 400, finding BLINDERS and STOOLIE. DIAZO for 57 worked out well for John as well. Come back to see us, John.

 

Kurt tied his first game of the day and he found CORDATE for 72. Leslie found ROOKIES for 66, and Mike L. played DINNERS but did almost as well with a few good non-bingo high plays like ZITI for 60 and ZAX for 57. Jay ended the afternoon with a win and got down RATIONS for 66.

 

Bob opened and closed his day with wins, finding BOLSTER and RELATION. Mike B. also had two wins today, getting 74 as he sneaked beamers* past his opponent, plus he also played some high-scoring non-bingos like WHOM (60) and BRIEF (53.) Jacob won his last game of the day, playing 6 bingoes, the highest scoring one being one of the most common 7 letter words seen in Scrabble: ATONIES, for which he got 80 points! Must have been a double-double or TWS, I thought, but Jacob informs me there were just that many overlapped words to contribute to the high score!

 

D won half her games today, opening with a big 411 win, and playing IMPLANT, GREEDILY and READILY. Bing also won half the time, with both wins over 400 and she played the highest-scoring play of the day with SEIZURE for 113!. Daniel also checked back in with us today, and didn’t lose a single game, but was not undefeated either. He tied his first game of the day, and later had a huge 444 game. Daniel played SPOILER, SILKIER, and AURORAS. (AURORAE is also good.)

 

Trish had two nice wins and would have been 3-2 except for a very high loss of 405 in the last game of the day. Her 5 bingoes included the sometimes hard-to-find SOLERETS, as well as DIRTIES and STIFFIES! Same for Xander whose high loss of 414 cost him a winning record, also a surprise to be 2-3 in the face of TEN bingoes in 5 games! Plus he played ZITI for 69, the highest-scoring non-bingo play of the day!

 

Aaron was 3 points away from 3-2 today, also finding 10 bingoes with no phoneys among them, and is Bingo King for this week! Mark was 3-2 with 7 bingoes including the nasty drink NEGRONI. His high non-bingo plays included QUERN (48) FLANK (54) and JUTES (56.)

 

I was 4-1 today with 8 bingoes, with my highest scoring one the ever-so-appropriate GEEKIEST for 92, although the most unusual one was DENTALIA. Ruchi was 5-1, with 10 bingoes, regretting that she missed OUTSPELT which would have been a triple-triple.

 

Undefeated? Donna, once again the Bingo Queen, with her opening 537 high win of the day, did not lose or tie, and among her 11 bingoes in just 4 games were words like HYDRILLA, SINOPIE, TORULAE, REDWARES, AUTOGIRO, BURGRAVE, and BUGSEEDS! 


Be thinking Holiday Scrabble one-day unsanctioned tournament all day Thursday, December 12th, at Mark and Ruchi's, details to follow in the next week or two.  See you next week!
