But only a fool would always only play the highest scoring word. I'll easily admit theres strategy to the game of course because of DW's and TW's and stuff lying around. But if you have 7 letters in front of you, and you dont know of weird words that only a computer program can unscramble for you, then no strategy can work. You have to be able to come up with words to make any strategy work. Anybody can come up with 1 or 2 letter words but you know somebody is cheating when half the words they play use up all the 7 letters with the 44point bonus and none of them are words you've seen on tv or heard in real life.
