Words With Friends: A 111-Point Mistake
Over the past few months, I’ve been playing Words With Friends with my friend Sandra. I think I might have won maybe one game off her in the early days, but she’s been consistently kicking my butt ever since.
In our latest game, I was doing fairly well. I’ve been maintaining a decent lead over her from the start, and always keeping somewhere around 10-30 points ahead of her.
Late last night, I was trying to clear out some letters and chanced across a decent move – I played the word heuch – which apparently is a cliff of some kind. I’ll admit – it was a trash play, but gave me about 15 points. At the time it was enough to keep me in the lead, and I was content.
I logged into Facebook earlier this AM, and saw this:
Well. With 22 letters remaining, yours truly has some catching up to do. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to find some way to play quetzalcoatl and get a double-word score.
