New Years Scrabble

Standard cutthroat rules with special tiles and using Yume's English/Japanese dictionary as the final judge, I manufactured a come-from-behind win with 140 points (averaging more than 15.5 points per round). It was the most exciting match we've played as a family yet. Dad came in 2nd with 122 points, though he led most of the game with early plays of 26 and 50 points in consecutive rounds. Yume came in 3rd with 94, and Mom (who blamed her tiles) brought up the rear with 85.
