The article "High-Scoring Scrabble Revisited" in the May 1981 Word Ways presented a set of rules for determining in a SCRABBLE Brand Crossword Game what words are to be allowed. Applying these rules, a single Scrabble move of 1757 points was devised, based on words in Webster's New International Dictionary, Second Edition. The article further stated that it would be an excellent idea to find the highest scores for the entire range of Merriam-Webster dictionaries to show their variation with dictionary size.
