What's your name's value in Scrabble? And please, no "it's a trick question, you can't use proper nouns" whining. (via Elayne Riggs)

This one's kinda fun for me because I think, Mefi-name-wise, I beat just about everyone. XQUZYPHYR rings in at a whopping 45 points, more than quonsar (16), xmutex (22), and even madamjujujive (42).

Remind me never to play Scrabble with you, XQUZYPHYR.

My real name gets 18 points, my MeFi user name 14 points.

But this, of course, would be subject to where on the board they were placed.

17 for username; real first name 7--but orange swan is right--let's pretend they're on triple word scores : >

XQUZYPHYR, you took all the good letters! Here's a listing of all mefiers with websites - there must be someone on there who beats you. Cheater.

well, looking at that list, GolubevEvgeniyVladimirovich gets 54.

Real name: 26 points

qDot: 14 points

Being able to act like my nick is a valid q-without-u word: priceless

Hmmm. Wonder who the highest scoring user whose nickname is an allowable scrablle word is?

My real name (first + last) is 39 points. Arguably being Polish is an unfair advantage but I don't even have any Zs in my name.

(This is a painfully suboptimal post, in my humble, but I can't be bothered Metatalking it. At least favorite movie/music/whatever poll threads have some informative value...)

Oh, and 44 points, so as to cut the grumpiness a bit.

Lynsey's Scrabble© Score is: 12. My real name is 30. "Score Me!" Heh.

UfezJones=28. But with the Z on a triple letter and the word on two triple word scores, it's a whole lot more!

I should say that it's not about how many Scrabble points your name is worth: it's about heart, about conviction.

Wow. My real life name is 44 too. Us 44'ers so rock.
posted by Mossy at 1:06 AM on January 11, 2004


IRL ("real") name: 23
MeFi name: 13

I agree with xmutex. Score doesn't matter, right? It's not the size of the score, it's the motion of the, um, tiles... yeah...

Metafilter: We're worth 15 Points.

My middle name, alone, is worth a whopping 37 points (those two "z"s help... yes, being Polish is an advantage.)
My full name is 62.
And my username is 9. So I got both ends of the spectrum covered; high and low.

My real full name (including my middle name) is 64 points (a whopping 24 letters in all, two of which are z's). I feel special.

Mdn, do you want to form a "whopping z's" club?
posted by Devils Slide at 8:43 PM on January 11, 2004


My full name is 69 points.

Sexy!

mkn: your middle name is Krzysztof, isn't it?
posted by jedrek at 1:35 AM on January 12, 2004


Hm, right in the middle on both calls. Real name: 26 points. Username: 25 points. I hate being average.
