UVSC Session Report
March 26, 2018 (Session #173)
(authored by BJ)
In one of our games this week, ZOIC was played to one of the corners,
and there was an opportunity to add a front extension to it later in the
game (to hit another triple word score), although it didn't end up
happening. Can you think of any of the front extensions to ZOIC of 4 or
more letters? There are a bunch.
This week Margaret, who played two games, had a very strong showing in
both of them. She beat me by 59 points and was just a few points shy of
beating Iliana too, scoring well above her average each time! We were
glad to have Devin drop in and join us for the first time in a while,
too. Ellen, Iliana and I rounded out the group.
We did play some Boggle afterward, too. No uber-long words came out of
it, like last week, but SILICATES and TROILITES were found. In
Scrabble, Ellen played both MISDEED and MISLEAD in the same game, which
seemed like a bit of a theme. A number of other fun bingos were seen
also: TENTIER ("more tenty (attentive)", not "more like a tent"!),
FORAYING, TABLING, RONIONS, DEMOLISH, TSARINA, EYELINER, GNAWERS,
GANOINES#, OUTPREEN ("to surpass in preening" -- really? yup.),
SLANTIER, HORRIDER, ROASTIE#, QUICKEST, UNEROTIC, FORLORNS#, AIRFOILS,
OATLIKE (oh how Iliana wanted to play its anagram instead!), FARSIDE,
TRIAGES, TUNNIES, MUSTARDS, REASONED, AUDITED.
Below is the board from Margaret's victory over BJ (TWL):
Scroll down for the answer to last week's question (finding long words
in a Boggle board).
Of words 8 letters and up, MITIGATIONS was the longest at 11 letters.
There were also MITIGATION (10), IMITATIONS (10), IMITATION (9), and
