a little nervous

help i have a scrabble tournament coming up this sunday and feeling a bit insecure... This is my first scrabble competition... the scariest thing is that i'll be pitting against other Mensans... i've never met them before, i'm just a lurking member so i don't know what their strategies are... my only hope is that they get the 1-score alphabets.

anyone got last minute scrabble tips for me?

If someone pulls off some crazy 200 point word, flip the game table over like in the "Hungry Like the Wolf" video. They'll think twice about doing it again.

You're in Mensa? My mom bought me some Mensa riddle cards and such a couple years ago...what fun!

As for Scrabble...well...

1. "Butt" counts.
2. "Ai" is a word (it's a sloth), in case you get really desperate for making a word.
3. It wouldn't hurt to look up some words that begin with letters like Q, X, or Z, as those letters are usually harder to get rid of.

Review the x and z sections of the dictionary!

And I discovered that "aa" is a word. And it has served me well!

Good luck!

What on earth is this hungry wolf video you guys are talking about?

Bonochick, 'ai'? It's not in my dic! Mm, the problem with the rules is that it has changed to a 'SOWPODS' system that I know nothing about.

I guess I'll just wing it, like bono-vox said!

Thanks for the tips, guys! Wish me all the best
