Infinite-Tile Scrabble


Alan Frank


Some time ago, I began to wonder how high a Scrabble game score I could get from an infinite pool of tiles. My first inclination was to play as many bingos (seven-tile plays having a bonus value) as possible, but Steve Root suggested the pattern of ZAXes in the game below, which improved the score considerably. In fact, Player 1 scores 1759 points and Player 2, 5337, for a grand total of 7096. Webster's Second is the dictionary of record.
