• I am assuming that when tiles are swapped, the new tiles have been selected at random.
    However, because this is random then exactly the same tile (letters) can be sent back which frustrates the intention of getting "new" letters.
    The program should be amended so that none of the swapped letters are returned but that they all are "new" ones.

  • Yes, that does seem odd. For actual scrabble, I would first draw the new tiles from the bag, then put the other tiles back in. Not sure if that's how it's supposed to work but I don't see why it shouldn't work that way. It doesn't seem like cheating to me.

  • @paulo-pereira I've never swapped that way but I see what the problem might be when you get down to, like, 10 tiles left in the "bag." Then, you're just cherry-picking.
