SCRABBLE, ANYONE? #55: “Mythological Beasties!”

Fraternity*

> I’ve been ‘hoarding’ this list for a special occasion.  I thought that our (imminent) survival into another year qualified.  I compiled this fun list several years ago, during the slow hours while working as a temporary office secretary for my Scrabble buddy Dr. Richard Abend.  When things were REALLY slow, if a patient cancelled or something, he would occassionally pay hme to play Scrabble with him.  He’s pretty good!  We’re about evenly matched…

(ALL are legal Scrabble plays.  Acceptable alternate spellings are included and they may be pluralized as well.  NEW entries in the updated Official Scrabble Dictionary are listed in BOLDFACE type.)

ENJOY!

    Hey Kevin – great post. Ellen & I are big Scrabble fans, though to our friends’ consternation we play collaborative Scrabble, with the goal being to get the coolest words on the board & use all tiles. We never keep score.
