Whether at an official tournament or a home kitchen table, every SCRABBLE player wants to be a winner--and these specially selected words and expert hints are guaranteed to boost scores. Based on the Official Scrabble Players Dictionary, Fourth Edition (currently one of the bestselling games and puzzles books) and with foreword by World SCRABBLE Champion Brian Cappelletto, this is the equivalent of an intensive training course. Complete with winning word lists, such as those that combine high-scoring letters, those that have a preponderance of vowels, and those that allow multiple I and U dumps, it also offers tips on hitting triple-triples and achieving those elusive 7-letter bingos.

Given to us by our Scrabble fan/ daughter, Heather, this book has been a great addition to our "friendly" contests. The "cheat sheet" is worth the price of the book and includes short golden words otherwise elusive such as qi and za. The further and extensive elaboration on possible combinations that are alphabetically and numerically listed are most instructive. I recommend that people use this book alternatively as a source to check any challenge, and then to periodically play "open book" games to enhance their skills. You will quickly elevate to another level, and if you are out of the league in playing another, use a time limit and let the weaker player use the book!
