Holy schamoley. Nice play, Bob! Pretty awesome board for both, actually.
Well, as I told Chrissy, I could not have done it without her. She made TROIKA, and I just happened to have PERS on my rack… and I thought to myself, wouldn’t it be funny if I drew another E, and then I could turn her TROIKA into PERESTROIKA… and danged if that isn’t exactly what happened. What are the odds?

Not counting the intersections, I count eight tiles. What was already on the board? Is ‘ika’ a word? IAC, yeah, admirable play.
I love a close end game … esp when I win. 🙂
Oh. Troika. Back when I played, we could only use English. Youse guyses apparently use just any old thing that sounds like a word. (ha ha) Ooo. Dowel would be a good Jotto word.
We play on Facebook SCRABBLE using the Tournament Word List. There’s no negotiating with the computer. A word is either accepted or rejected. We whine about rejects in the comments section and have a deal to play sometime IRL where the rule will be, “If I can come up with a funny enough definition for a fake word, then you will let me play it.” We practice for this future game by making up funny definitions for “words” we find on our racks. It’s a fun side game. 🙂
We should have taken screen shots of some of those invented words and invented definitions — some of them were really funny!
You’re right. I could’ve done a whole blog about them. Darn!
1. a Russian vehicle pulled by a team of three horses abreast. a team of three horses for a troika.
2. a group of three people working together, especially in an administrative or managerial capacity.
