Fixing A RETINA for good bingo vision

It can be very annoying when you get a very good letter group on your rack, but the seventh letter is one of the few that just do not make a bingo. When that happens you usually just have 1 point tiles and can only get a very small score, particularly if you don’t want to break up your good letter group

A good example is ARETINA. Any scrabble players is delighted to see 6 of those tiles, but that second A is a disappointment. All is not lost because there are 13 different letters you might find on the board through which to play an 8 letter word

G – AERATING – Allowing air to act on something

J – NAARTJIE – Small sweet orange similar to a mandarin

M – ANIMATER – Someone who makes animated films M – MARINATE – To soak in seasoned liquid before cooking
