A recent XKCD comic put soul_diaspora in mind of an incident at our first Scrabble tournament, and she posted a mention of it. Commenters expressed curiosity, so here you go.

In the first game of the tournament, I was matched with a very proper lady somewhere on the high side of 60 years old. She played first, and put down something like CARRY for 28 points.

My rack: EFILLOT

There is exactly one legal play worth 63 points here, so I made it. I'll leave it as an exercise for the reader to figure it out; you should have enough clues to make it reasonably easy. Okay, one more small hint, then: it uses all my letters and one of hers.

Not much conversation took place during the game...
