40 for 7 letters and 50 for 8 In real scrabble 7 is the bingo because only 7 letters in the scrabble rack. If you attach to another letter and make it 8 letters in scrabble there are no bonus points as there are here. Both are bingos
@Deborah-McElmon-Clahane I can't say I've found that happening but it really doesn't seem to be purely random. It seems like whenever I play someone out of my league, the letters I get are crappy - while they're playing bingos...
I sometimes block people when the game does not feel competitive. Like I am "below their range" by 150 points.
I have several friends I already play who are way more experienced than I. So I am fairly consistently losing to them (and learning). It is just so nice to have a few balanced games as well.
I feel the same way but fact is not every word has the definition we prefer or are used to. Jew is not the same as jew. jew is acceptable in the dictionary..I might not like it but it is how it is. nazi is also good. I would rather it went back to a proper noun so not used..but alas, it is good. Just keep in mind not every word means what we think it does. I also see 2 other answers to your question but I do not have access to those responses. Hope I am not repeating them
