I'm edging closer to Spike1007 in best average word, and feeling a bit guilty about it. He's playing by pretty strict rules and I'm just being an opportunist, going for any word I can find with 30 or more points. He could easily leave me in the dust if he chose to do so!
Don't feel guilty at all. Go for it! I still feel compelled to take most new words worth 26 or more points, even if they lower my average. My "strict" rules turn out to be a little flexible though, so I do throw away some 26 point words if I'm not that proud of them or the board has just been played just a few times. I won't go nuts there though, so I'd guess my average for the month won't be too much different from what it is now.

Thanks mcdonna! You had a nice find there. Reminded me of a recent game where I had played PATHOGENIC for 2 records. Just after the game submitted I saw I could've played PATHOGENICITIES. Oh well, next time...
Spike is a laid back dude. When I saw what you wrote, I thought he wouldn't mind. And his subsequent post confirmed it. (He's conserving his strength this month for next month's battle royale for the trophy. lol )

No, no, no. You are supposed to enter the fray with us.
When I said battle royale I was probably a little overdramatic.

Can't I just ask one of you champions to tie my hankie to your helmet? It's clean.

Sorry, mcdonna. I didn't mean to pressure you. It seemed like this month you were more interested in playing competitively. Of course you should play the way that makes the game fun for you.
