Damn kinda had to be a double triple there I guess

I will now share my greatest scrabble moment, apropos

I was down like 200 with maybe ten tiles left in the bag, and I popped down SIERRAN for 80-odd points, but in doing so set my opponent up for the triple, couldn't be helped, I had to play SIERRAN and pray

I drew the last seven tiles I was going to get and it was UNKETED, which is nothing and has the potential to be nothing. But then I thought, well, junket can actually be a verb and I looked around and the J wasn't out yet, and then I thought man my opponent is totally gonna play the J on the top center triple here for the automatic 24 and I am totally gonna drop JUNKETED on her ass

And then she did, icing me, putting me down 125 or so with one play and zero tiles left

So then I played JUNKETED immediately like I was waiting for it, which I was, and I went out as she went into shock

My finest hour. I still have a picture.

Thanks for tuning in

So in my story, I had SURPING which I didn't even realize I had, but as I started to lay down other tiles (this is Words with friends, so I can lay down tiles and think about them before pulling them back up) I realized I had an ING combination. And what I've learned from playing a LOT of words with friends (among other things) is that if you have an ING combination, always fucking try and find a verb you can play that ING combination with. PURSING came to mind, but there was nowhere to play it.

And then I found an L and it lined me up with a triple word score PLUS (this is words with friends) theres a 50 point (or 35 who cares) bonus for playing all your words and basically ka ching

ka ching ka ching ka chiiiiiiing

i'm so proud
