100 Words, 100 Days, Day 1: On Word Games

The object of word games is to bamboozle your opponent with your dazzling skills, impressing them with your ability to place high-scoring letters in triple letter tiles and/or triple or word scoring tiles. Having a dictionary close at hand is advisable. Every now and again you’re going to need something to throw at the wall when your opponent plays a blinder; like using a Q to make qi, qis, qat, qats or suq. Word games can also be used as an excuse when one should be writing. It is better to bamboozle your readers than players. What do you think?
