Opponent’s options: SKEE d10 (30), REEK 8l (24)
Scoring options: JAWED/JEWED 12a (48), JADED 12a (44), JETON d1 (29)
Setup potential: Yes
While your best scoring options use the J at 12a, this is a problem, as your opponent will be able to play the word JOKE and outscore you. The ADN, DEN, and ENW leaves don’t score enough on this board to outscore your opponent: you must find another option. WADED leaves you JEAN b10 and JETON on your next turn after WOKE: this play ties the game. However, by playing RAND or REND at 12l first, you leave two 48 point spots for your remaining tiles.
