V - Very Basic

This should be a good blog for an intermediate level player. Perhaps it is a little too easy for an expert, but check it out anyway. There is always a nugget you can glean somewhere.

When balancing your rack to try to keep good letters it is very common to look to dump a V and a couple of vowels. So it is very common to play a 3 letter word made up of two vowels and a V. You really should know all about those words.

So the quiz this week shouldn’t be too difficult. List all 13 words that are 3 letters made up of two vowels and the letter V.

Hmmmm…. 13, it would be unlucky if you couldn’t find them all!

Just see if you can write down the answers before you move on to the list in today's blog

OK, here are the answers, plus additional information on meanings and hooks:
