Big game
Not often you see a 1000+ point game. In fact, first time I've been in one that I recall. Would have been nice to have won it though...

Probably a dumb question but which game is it? I don't recognise the board layout or the tile scoring values. All the nine-letter words are impressive, too.

Lexulous. There used to be a Scrabble game on Facebook, until the owners of Scrabble got sniffy about it. So the authors gave it a bigger board (and tileset). There is also now an 'approved' Scrabble, from somebody else, but a lot of us fell in love with Lexulous. You don't have to play via FB, as Lexulous has its own website, but I think most of the people I play do go via FB.

Top game :-)

And you were winning, until the last few moves ....

I once lost a game by 450+ to 600+. Very unusual, though.

I think I once made four bingoes in a row (might have been against land_girl) but it happened while the archives were broken. Haven't even come close since then.

Board is the same size, btw, but you get more letters (in your rack — I think there are fewer letters in the whole game).

"Board is the same size"

Runs off to check... So it is. I assumed it was larger, but they just moved the bonus squares around a bit. Well well.
