Alright, so your mother-in-law, a PhD in English Literature, has challenged you, a lowly salesclerk at the local bookstore, to a “friendly” game of Scrabble. Between visits to your local bingo hall, you can take a break online and get fun and excitement without spending any money at all.

Some other common endings you want to watch for are -ed, -er, -ier, -iest, and -ies. The words “aid” and “at” are particularly helpful for those looking to dump a Q, and this goes for your opponent too!
