A game with two Q’s

One thing people like about computer (i.e. internet) scrabble is obvious: it does the math. Well, at least most of it, nonetheless. But an algorithm, however sophisticated, is surely not without flaws (errors, bugs, drawbacks, you name it)—from anything as commonplace as power failure or processing problem (at times, that millions-of-operations-per-second chip just acts dumb—other times dumber), to something very uncommon like this game below.

See the words (QUAG and QUITE)?. Surely this was a (computer) glitch. A fun one, for that matter. Also quite interesting is imagining how both players (one than the other) reacted when they found out that there were actually two Q’s on board: 😯 → 😕 → 😆 .

We (see profile/pictures) had a scrabble club once (for some reason, it’s now there no more). On one particular corner, we used to display ‘anything scrabble’ ( tips, players’ stats, and anything worth noting or announcing). If we still had that now, then you bet I would make a printout of this board and hang it on the wall for everyone to see.

Good game, cmnancys and florri. Cheers!!
