Let’s face it – I pretend to be somewhat decent at Scrabble. I am happy when I win, because I tend to think that if I don’t play well, I don’t win (and hence I start to think I’m playing well since I won). However, there are times where this illusion is completely obliterated by none other than Quackle, this demeaning (and can I say overfed) duck which tramples upon all of my ego. And after all this is over, you begin to wonder how you managed to win the game at all. Here’s one of the games where this happens, played against Hubert in the recent JG Mini, with 12 lessons on how to win even though you’re playing real bad.
