LEARN two long words to win the 12- to 13-letter-word ($340 in the pot), and 14- to 15+letter-word ($440 to date). The players who find the long word may split the prize. The first example was sent by Amnon: SNOW BOAR DING for 12- to 13-letter-word forming SNOWBOARDING; it can take an S at the end. Under W, this word breaks down into FIVE valid words: WRONG, HEAD, HEADED, NESS, NESSES. It may begin with HEADED somewhere near the center. This category is an opportunity to play a longer word than usual, and because this is a learning process for all, it is allowed to point out the possibility to your opponent that you both can build a long word together resulting into WRONGHEADEDNESS=15 letters. Adding ES at the end makes it plural, WRONGHEADEDNESSES, qualifying it in the 14- to 15+letter-category. Results will be posted here at superscrabble.wordpress.com.
