Playing strategy in the One Hit format is our topic this week. This is one of the formats that was added recently. In this format the first player plays a two letter word after which the players play just one tile per turn. What kind of strategy can one use in a game when you play only one tile at a time, you ask?
In One Hit, watch for vowels that have been played adjoining the 2L and 3L spaces on the playing board. If you have colored tiles on your rack, now would be a good time to play one! Example: Your opponent plays an 'i' below a 3L space. You can place an 'x' on this 3L space to spell "xi" and score 16 pts!
If you want to prevent your opponent from racking up big points in One Hit, be careful where you place those vowels!!
We will have other playing tips on One Hit, so keep an eye out for them!
