UVSC Session Report February 19, 2018 (Session #168) (authored by BJ) Ellen, Iliana and I played 12 games this week, and I was pleased when in one of those games I found a 7-letter word I had just studied the other day in this rack: AEEPUV? -- especially after initially thinking there was no possible bingo. It's not such an unusual word I guess, but a different form of it is much more common. Ellen took a chance on a word she wasn't sure of, unfortunately for me, because TOONIES is just fine ("a Canadian two-dollar coin") and is a word I am familiar with, having grown up near the Canadian border. For her part, Iliana also found a late-game bingo to an S to win with her final rack of ABEGNO? (there are six possibilities). As for non-bingo plays, the story was all about fun 56-pointers: Ellen got down KEX for that score, Iliana front-hooked LUTZ with the K in MASKED for the same, and I managed to play FEIJOA by front-hooking LOOSIES# into FLOOSIES for the same score yet again. Other bingos included: PERMING, BITCHES, MOLESTED, INSNARES, ETCHINGS, SOOTING, TAMEINS, ANTIPORN, ETERNALS, ACRIDER, BLUNGES, NEONATES, UNTENDED, IDOLATER, INVEIGLE, RUSTICAL, FASCIST, ATTONES#, AEROTONE#, LOOSIES#, FOOTIER, ERASION and ... UPHEAVE and BEGONIAS. Below is a TOONIE (also TWOONIE or TWONIE#). The coin got this nickname as a rhyme of LOONIE, the nickname for the Canadian one-dollar coin, which has an image of a loon (bird) on it.
