Quiz Answers

Camp’s over and no new replies, so I’ll just post up on the answers! Quiz 5 The very first thing that should be noted is that the scorelines are really very close. This move should have a dual emphasis on score and leave – you still don’t need a bingo to win. Z(A) wins this […]

To all faithful readers of the blog..

Merry Christmas! (just realised I wished no one with that) No one with second opinions for the quizzes? One for all, All for one, Venturez’ 06

Fishing Quizzes!

For those who follow the Quackle’s style well, it’s interesting to note that it’s a good fisher – more often than not dropping points to draw good next turn. This is ONE of the reasons why I drop equity sometimes – playing bad fishes (Tony should remember the ones I did, which were all pretty […]

Session at Hubert’s Place

Yesterday was spent at Hubert’s place for a Hari Raya (Haji?) celebration. I don’t know these festivals too well so I’m unsure about the dates.. well it was INTENDED to be non-Scrabble, but given that (1) all the people invited play Scrabble (2) there really isn’t much to do, unless you hog Hubert’s labtop laptop […]

Just managed to turn on the computer after about 10-20 attempts, so probably have to blog something while I still can! I’m playing in the mini in about an hour’s time, in a field of (something like) Cheah, KB, Ben, Tony, Marcus, Li Wei and possibly Andy/ Guo Cong… Hope to finish in the money! […]

TWQ Scrabble Words

1. All nouns and verbs take an ‘I’ front hook, i.e. words like POD, GALLOP now take an I front hook. If the hook is a blank, an extra 5 points is added to the word formed because it now looks classier (e.g. iPod, iGallop). Exclusions to this blank rule are: IROBOT (which can only […]

Finals Analysis (continued) and General Comments

For those of you who read you should note this is basically a regurgitation of what IS already on the website, except sometimes with additional personal commentary. WYSC F3 Move 1 WB: JAUPED best. Wasn’t 100% sure of this but vaguely remembered JAUPING.. (this is how I play, folks) Cheah comments in the other room […]

Finals Analysis (Continued)

Edit: New poll on the blog! WYSC F2 Move 1 SC: Placement of HUI is wrong – should expose the U instead. Placing it at 8F also ensures that back hooks to HUI (A, C, S) don’t hit the DWS so quickly. WB: Poor placement considering I thought it scored exactly the same. Surprisingly only […]
