More of the Best Scrabble Words

Updated on November 14, 2013

What do you do when you get a rack of tiles like “sqbeeau”? Well, if there’s an open “u” on the board you could just form the word “usquebae.” Usquebae? Yes, believe it or not, “usquebae” is a word. It refers to a type of liquor.

Now suppose your tile rack is filled with “pymalts.” If you see an “i” on the board, you could make “ptyalism.” Yup, that’s also a word. It means “excessive secretion of saliva.”

Okay, now what if you have “rrreeip”? Well, look for an open “a” and make “rareripe.” It means “ripening early.”

The point is, even with the most obscure list of letters, you may still be able to make a decent word and possibly even use all your letters in one turn. For more of the best, and most unusual, Scrabble words, read below (if you missed my first list, click here). There are words for every letter of the alphabet including eight words that start with “j,” three words that start with “q” (plus one that ends in “q”), eight words that start with “u,” eleven that start with “v,” one that starts with “x,” and seven that start with “z.”

      A neat list that I'll be checking out again. If I remember it just right, one of my highest scores used jaquerie in the upper left corner after making jerk from the top TW down the left side. It gave me another TW and the bonus points. Then, jaquerie had an added s and jerk became jerkiest for another TW.

      That's quite a list.

      My wife and I used to play much Scrabble, before kids. I once played s(queezed) on her s, with both q and z on triple letter spaces. Quite a score that night!
