That's right folks, 176 points for one word. My sister and her family are visiting from Arizona and this was our third game since Sunday. And the fact that the word was "cardigan" made the moment even more special. (Remember my post about the Cardigan Mafia?)
14 points for the word (including one double letter score for the "D".
I got to triple the word twice because it fell on two Triple Word Scores. (We verified this scoring with the official rules on the printed in the box.)
And then, because I used all of my seven tiles I got an additional 50 points.
Needless to say this is the highest score I have ever gotten for one word in Scrabble. Too bad the word didn't have a "Z" or "Q" in it.
