A Little Scrabble Miracle

If you are a Scrabble player, you will realize how unlikely it is that anyone can find room for a 7 letter word during the last few plays.  First of all, the likelihood of drawing 7 letters that make a word so late in the game are unlikely, and secondly, there is rarely a space for a seven letter word, sincle most of the board is already covered.  What, then, are the chances that you would both have the same letters left to build the exact same seven letter word in the same turn?  In this case, the word in itself was rather unusual.  Look for it in the photo below. I’ll let you have a look while I run to the ladies room, and when I get back, I’ll tell you the answer. Two turns later, the final word was played and the game was over.

If you found “urinate” written twice on the board, you are right.  Again, what are the odds? This is an online game, by the way.  I play with my friend Marti in California. I’m in Mexico.

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    The only way you could do that would be to have a hand made entirely of single point letters. But if you have all one pointers, you can almost always make a 7-letter word. The hard part was finding a place to PUT it. That was a real miracle!

    I miss having someone to play scrabble with!

    Scrabble on line … now that could be a very dangerous distraction, my family is addicted! Getting a seven letter word out is not uncommon but the same word twice and near the end of the game is most unusual as you say

    I play online with Joey (our Joey, from Joeyfully Stated). She is in her south of the USA and I’m in Italy. 🙂 We play on Facebook, SCRABBLE Mattel. Yours looks different. And well done, even though I don’t know how you could both use all letters, wouldn’t the first one to do so win already?
