Senior Solutions

The most well-known letter groups are RETINA, SATINE and SATIRE. You will notice that none of them include the letter O, but maybe there is a SENIOR solution for that. No, it isn’t quite as good as the big 3, but if you take 6 tiles and see SENIOR then as you reach back into the bag to take one of the remaining 94 tiles there are 74 of them that will make a 7 letter word. Just 20 that will not. More than half of the ‘bogey’ letters are the other 11 E’s because that is the only major letter that will not fit.
