OK, I haven't done it all yet, but I have to quibble with the answer to the Scrabble question. On the instruction I have it says when you use all your tiles that is called a "Scrabble". (Incidentally, we had a game where Ken and his sister Scrabbled in consecutive turns. I hate that!)

Well, Alix-
I don't get to send any bombs; this is from the official "Scrabble" site--

  1. BINGO! If you play seven tiles on a turn, it's a Bingo. You score a premium of 50 points after totaling your score for the turn.
