Word Ways


In the August 1981 issue of Word Ways, Alan Frank presented several ultra-low-scoring Scrabble games. This article follows up by asking: what is the widest disparity of score possible between two players? Below is a set-up game I created years ago in which the difference in scores is more than 1900; however, I am sure avid Scrabblers can improve on this number. All of the words can be found in the Merriam-Webster Unabridged Dictionary (Second Edition).
