Ignite Show: Mehal Shah on Winning At Scrabble

Scrabble isn’t a game of who can get the best 6 letter words. It’s a game of points and squeezing 2 letter terms into corners. In this week’s Ignite Show Mehal Shah takes us through clean and sometimes dirty ways to win at Scrabble.

Some of his tips include:

  • Thinking of Scrabble as a numbers game, instead of a word game
  • Learning how to double the value of every tile you play
  • Shutting down the board and holding on to every point you can get
  • Learning how to bluff effectively
  • Learning how to fake a bluff effectively
  • Using your opponents knowledge to trick them
  • Using foreign languages to psych out your opponent
