Opponent’s options: FOIBLE 2c, FOB 3l, column e parallel plays, row 4 hooks
Candidate plays: TRIG e4, RIG e5, CUTIS l1, RUGS/TRUGS l2/l1
Potential plays on next turn: Out plays
Subgoal: Find the play that goes out and wins by permuting each tile in the bag.
Resolution: In Puzzle 35, you’re trying to figure out a way to score well and hopefully go out next turn, to overtake the 24 point deficit. Since there is one tile in the bag, you can work out each endgame to figure out the best play. In this case, the best play is RIG e5 (33), allowing you to go out and win with the A, E, I, or L.
