Uncle Roy replies:

WHOA!! Good work! I can't wait to play with you sometime. Here are some helpful tips:

Make sure to think about having even numbers of vowels and consonants in your rack after you play your word - so on your next rack you won't have all vowels or all consonants.

Leaving double letters in your rack for next turn is usually bad, except E which is only a little bad.

Try to score at least 60 points with each blank you get.

Learn all the 2 letter words (there aren't that many") and play words parallel to each other for extra points.

On your first move, if you don't score 18-20 (including the double word), pass and draw new tiles to try to get a bingo if you think you're close.

QI and ZA are very useful… and don't forget trying to use X on a triple in two directions which scores 52 at a minimum.

Think about what you "leave" in your rack for next move. If these letters are "good" letters like ETAION SHRDLU (the most common letters in English words), you're likely to draw some more of them, and then be able to make a bingo.

Unless you have two S's,don't use an S unless it is an above average score (for you) - usually average is about 20 so try to make S really count.

Good players get an average of 1.5 bingos per game. You should be getting at least an average of 1 for now… and 1.25 when you learn some more words as you get older.

At the end of the game, think whether the other player has a Q, Z or X. If they do, don't get let them play them by making ZA or QI or QAT.

Here is a list of two and three letter words which is worth learning.

I love you! See you very soon!!!!

Love Uncle Roy
