WOW is worth 9 points

This past weekend was the National Scrabble Championship. I watched some of the games live on the Web — it’s hypnotically fascinating to watch these word geniuses play things like UNWISHED across two triple-word scores, netting 176 points in one go. (Not that I saw that one happen, but it’s a good example of how impressive these players are.)

But the most mind-boggling thing to come out of the tournament may be this board created by Dan Stock. All the words are legit, and it uses all 100 Scrabble tiles.
