The other day I was playing the popular board game with my good friend, Chet Manley. Though he had me on the ropes for most of the game, I finally had a 6 letter word that I slapped down on the board with glee.
"Ha, 15 points, even though I had to use both blank tiles to get it," I said peppily. "But at least it is not a word you see every day."
"Oh, without a doubt, " Chet exclaimed, " it is a magnificent word. However, what you have put down is only a variation of its spelling. If you had had one additional tile, you could have used the 7-letter version and scored more points. However, that is a physical impossibility."
Confused, I stared at the board, and did not understand what Chet was trying to tell me. Can you tell me what I could have done, if only the laws of physics had let me?
Notes: Assume the English language and version of Scrabble.
Also, for scoring purposes, assume that no letter was on a modifying square.
If people seem to be having trouble, I will add in a hint later that will tell you what the point score of the new word would be if I had been able to play it.
