This puzzle has been inspired by a game played between two of our members a few weeks back.

One of the players had an unplayable Q, the other player failed to maximise her score as she played her remaining tiles in 2 moves. 

Frequently if your opponent is stuck with one tile it can be profitable to play out slowly.


Using this Christmas themed board below and the rack AESTUWZ how many points can you score before the end of the game ? (The words with blanks are MYRRH and JESUS).

Please email any answers to the 'contact us' at the top of this page. Remember to include your individual move scores.


Can you score more than 50 points ? 70 ? over 100 ?
