Scrabble/trivia night at Bagel Boss in Hicksville is

Friday, July 28, at 7pm

432 S Oyster Bay Rd, Hicksville, NY 11801

It may be cold inside.


Highlights of the day: #1:   Through the end of the August, our starting time will be 2:00 PM.     #2:    Our anniversary party is Tuesday, August 8.  Thanks go out to Colleen, Dick, Rob, and Dave, who already kicked in their $6 for cake, ice cream, etc. If you're coming to the party, please bring $6 (per person) next week. If you plan to be at the party, but you're not coming before then, you can e-mail me to let me know, and I'll lay out the $6 for you, and you can pay me when I see you.     #3:     Jon overtook Rob in the ratings, to recapture the club's rating lead.  Jon is now at 1842.      #4:   In a squeaker, Colleen had a 1 point win over Jay.       #5:     Kia joined the 1600 club.     #6:    Jeff had a major upset over Agnes.     #7:   Bob was PREACHY for 105 points.      #8:   Jon had a 504 game.      #9:    We had five puns. The first two are from Bob. The next three are from Jon, Dave, and Colleen, respectively. While our "puns" are rarely actual puns (anymore), Colleen's actually is one.   #1:   Definition: Not quite in really horrible pain.  Tiles on the rack: AGONISH    #2:  Definition:  How the Mayflower Madam ended up in jail.   Tiles on the rack:   LUVRAID   #3:   Definition:   How all good "payback" stories start.   Tiles on the rack:   EXCHASE    #4:  Definition:   Scandal at the AMA.   Tiles on the rack: DOCGATE   #5:   Definition:   A band of brothers.   Tiles on the rack:   BROGADE    #10:   Kia thought she had iced the game when she played INVOLVER, taking a big lead, and the last of the tiles. However, Agnes bingoed out with IONIZERS to "charge" ahead and steal the win.     #11:   Two of this week's Top Bingos are CARANGID and LEMPIRA. In the unlikely event that these words are not part of your everyday vocabulary, here's what they are:    


This week's Top Bingos are...



UPSWELL1 (Bernie);   NUTTERS1 (Dick);   ROGATION (Rob)

EXUDATE (Colleen);   SIGNETS2 (Bob)


Around the middle of January, 2012, it occurred to me that I should probably save our TOP BINGOS on an ongoing basis.  So from now on, when you have a word put on that list, it will be findable in this EXCEL spreadsheet:

Past Top Bingos From 1/17/12 on

"Whine List"... (best unplayable bingos)


...(Please remember to report these things)

The most interesting non-bingo words reported were:


FUGU (Dave);   ENWOMB1 (Rob)
