zwischenzug- The name of the least popular cheese in the world. The cheese is made out of male breast milk and causes a slight sense of euphoria after eating which lasts about 5 seconds before you either have to throw it up or your insides explode. It was very popular during WWII as a means of getting information. It is now used by suicide cults around the world and is illegal in all countrys but France where they seem to find the taste delicious.

And since we're waiting around anyway for the judge, making comments...

10 tiles in the rack???? I've never played with but seven! How does the game go, doing that? Is it over a lot sooner? Better words???? I am so trying that next time.
I have played Speed Scrabble where everyone gets 59 seconds to play. I've also played Idiot's Scrabble - low points win, and if a word is judged by the group to be too long or clever, then extra points are added on as punishment.

At the start of each turn a player has to pick up a tile; and if unable to place a word, the tiles in hand pile up in hand.

really?

I've always picked up tiles after I've made a word and only picked up the amount that I put down to make 7 again... also, if I couldn't make a word then I just lost a go.

Well...it's been a long time since I Scrabbled...but my recollection is that you pick up a new tile from the face down pile at start of each new turn (hopefully one that will let you use the Crap in hand) and if you can't make a word still you just gnash your teeth and hope for something usefull next turn. Emptying your rack awarded some bonus points (I forget how much) and if someone emptied their rack the round was over, and players having tiles in hand subtracted from their points already earned, or docked them into the hole.

Were we just making those rules up???

Well, it's a version of Scrabble we've never played before, let's just put it that way I'd like to try it.
I always played by the rules on the box - the way Leah plays it. We very often had to actually refer to them, growing up, because my mom was pretty cuthroat and you had to watch her.

The offiskal rules are fairly clear, even when translated into German, and then back to English (via Babelfish):

Accomplish your revolution, by counting and announcing your notch for this revolution. Draw then so many new letters, you played; if you hold always seven for letters on your rack, so long, since there are sufficient tiles to the left in the bag.

If you cannot form a word with the letters on your rack, you can lose EXCEEDING, your revolution and your letters keep. They know EXCHANGE at this Punktoptativ, to three tiles with new tiles of the bag so long, as sufficient tiles for the exchange remain.


Hmm. Okay then... so much for Babelfish.

Complete your turn by counting and announcing your score for that turn. Then draw as many new letters as you played; always keep seven letters on your rack, as long as there are enough tiles left in the bag.

If you cannot form a word with the letters on your rack, you may PASS, forfeiting your turn and retaining your letters. You may at this point opt to EXCHANGE up to three tiles with new tiles from the bag, as long as sufficient tiles remain for the exchange.


There you have it, courtesy of Hasbro, which acquired them from Parker Brothers, who in turn bought them offa Coleco, who got 'em from Selchow & Righter for three magic beans and a case of Cabbage Patch Cooties.

Now let's get some judgmentation goin' on.

zwischenzug Ger zwichen; wishing away, z; the, ug; ugly.

The emotion related to wishing an ugly mistake was undone.

zwischenzug

Relating to awesome scrabble words achieved out of a series of seemingly own, and many recent studies have shown that frequent use of the muscles which the brain associates with sadness can adversely affect a person's mood.

zwischenzug- the elaborately draped train of material hanging off the butt of an evening gown. Good for swishing.

Coveted second place goes to trisherina
