From the Author
This book started off as a revision of my The Champion's Strategy for Winning at Scrabble Crossword Brand Game
, which was published by Stein & Day back in the Dark Ages of Scrabble theory. Scrabble play has evolved considerably over the intervening years, and How to Play Scrabble Like a Champion
reflects this evolution. It differs profoundly from my earlier book. The opening section of the chapter on strategy is of particular value, as it presents a series of rules for rack management versus scoring that you will not find anywhere else.
