UVSC Session Report
May 14, 2018 (Session #180)

Suppose you have JACKS in the middle row of the board, at position 8F.
A four-letter extension will bring it to the triple word score. There

another opportunity and this time scored 69 for JACKSTONE, which was a
different word than the one he'd considered earlier. Can you think of

SQUIT# ("a small or insignificant person") for a lovely 73 points, and
then outdid herself in the very next game by playing SQUIT# yet again,
this time for 78 points!
Together with Ellen, Margaret, and myself, here are some of the bingos
we found: BORNITES, SILURIAN, ESQUIRES (which was the high bingo of the
session by Ellen for 104), SNOTTER# ("to sob"), TISANES, REPTILIA,
OUTDRIVE, FAULTIER, TWISTIER, NODULAR, ATONIES, INCREATE, UNELATED#,
WEEDINGS#, ATRESIC, STENTOR, TANGLIER, OUTSOAR, RAMPAGE, LAITIES,
ELASTICS, DEADEST, DEAFNESS, and JOURNEY.
