Literati Playing Tip of the Week golfinmimi4       8/14/2006 10:11

This week begins playing strategies for our unique Literati formats! The first formats we will cover are Pick-a-Side & Top/Bottom.

The idea of Pick-a-Side and Top/Bottom is to set yourself up for big scoring plays. You can easily get 50-60 pt plays off the 3W if you are blessed with colored tiles! To do this follow this plan:

Instead of playing one word to take the 3W, you can play a word that leads right up to the 3W square, but leave the 3W square open. Be sure you play a word that can have one letter added to the end (or beginning depending on which 3W you are using), or you've blocked the 3W..lol. You could play any word that can be pluralized by adding 's', or play a word such as "PAN" on the right or bottom side of the board. This word would have many options: pane, pang, pant or pans. If you play "PAN" on the left or top side of the board, 'pan' could become 'span'. When you spell a word using that 3W, if you have any colored tiles it's a huge boost to your score if you can play the color on the 3L square that is just above, below or beside (depending on what 3W you are using).

Examples:

PAN is played leaving the 3W space open at the 'p'. You can play ZIPS (the Z is placed on the 3L square & the S is placed on the 3W square to also form the word SPAN) You would score 57 pts for the word ZIPS and 15 pts for the word SPAN making this a 72 pt play!!

PAN is played leaving the 3W space open at the 'n'. You can play SHOWN (the W is placed on the 3L square & the S is placed on the 3W square to form PANS) You would score 51 pts for the word SHOWN and 15 pts for the word PANS making this a 66 pt play!!

There is a myriad of possibilities. (hmm...myriad sounds like a good 'word of the day' : )

Happy Spelling!!
