How to play OXYPHENBUTAZONE on the Scrabble app for Facebook

Ever wonder how the folks on the Facebook Scrabble leaderboards play the word "OXYPHENBUTAZONE" for almost 2000 points?

Here is one way.

Several postings and videos detail how to spell oxyphenbutazone for 1780 using TWL words. However, if you want to play oxyphenbutazone on the Scrabble application for Facebook there is a problem. The way the board is laid out in the 1780 point play features a word that the Facebook version does not allow. While Scrabble's Facebook version allows PREQUALIFIED it does not allow REQUALIFIED. This results in the inability to make the exact play.

In an effort to get near that high score I set out to determine how it would be possible to spell oxyphenbutazone.

Keep in mind that you must use both blanks for Ns if you do it like this.

Here are some screen captures of the steps I used to play oxyphenbutazone. Some have been left out but this should give you the basic idea. You do not have to follow this step by step but be careful to not set yourself up for a word you cannot spell in one play.

Here's a way to squeeze another couple points out of this word:

If you switch the N tile from Awakeners with the Blank tile in Ejaculating, you'll only lose 1 point from Awakeners, but gain 3 points in Ejaculating because it is a triple word score word.

Umm....no it's not.....

feld said...

Umm yes. Ejaculating is on a triple word tile.

I am working on a board for 1778 points.

It's always a good idea to try to gain three points in ejaculating...

Sorry Jake, but your suggestion adds no points because the "n" in awakenings gets scored 6 times, on 6 different plays while the "n" in ejaculating would only get scored twice with triple word for each, a net 6 points, same as in awakenings.

Sorry Who, but we are only looking at the single word score, not the game score, so Jacob is correct about getting an extra couple of points.

Also, instead of starting with WASH start with ASH so that the case player can play TWOONIE for 72 points

What is your highest score received in this game with all the tiles?

I’ve always enjoyed the game Scrabble. The game requires a mixture of vocabulary, strategy, pattern-recognition and luck.
