Abstract

Using the letter-distribution of the game of Scrabble (allowing the two blank tiles to represent any desired letters), what is the smallest number of words that can be made using all the letters? This problem was posed on the Competitions page of the June 1973 Games & Puzzles Magazine; the winner, R. E. Jerome of Berkshire, England, managed to use up all 100 Scrabble tiles in only seven words.
