I was thinking about blocking the N on M2 here, but Quackle thinks I should just play D4 WI(R)E. Playing N1 LAW doesn't stop the other bingo lanes that are still on this board, and I get hit back with O1 AVE anyway (and my opponent holds on to the blank). #strategysmall
I'm down, so I guess I need to be aggressive by playing L2 ETCHInG. I didn't want to do it because there was still an F, two Ls, and an R unseen. IDK, maybe I distract my opponent with this while I hope to bingo elsewhere. big oof. #strategysmall
B8 RIDABLE or 14B RIDABLE are better #knowledgesad
Also, a standing applause for forgetting how to pronounce MARINERS, thinking it was some dumb American naval force propagandist bull, and therefore challenging it even though I've read the stupid Rime of the Ancient Mariner. The second I stopped the clock I knew I'd fucked up. It's funny how the brain works sometimes. Anyway, the dumbass award goes to me, so everyone get your grubby hands off of my prize, please and thank you.
I want to begin by saying that I was absolutely disassociated during this game. What was going through my head? Nothing. I had two thoughts, they ricocheted off of each other, and then it was time to eat sushi. It's the sushi's fault. I just wanted sushi.
Just play I7 JET, Nits. #visionSADDEST
So I blew the endgame here. I knew what the 8 unseen tiles were and I knew there were two places on the board for bingos: the D column and under PRAISE on row 2. All I needed to do was calculate what bingo my opponent could play through the N on column D and then block the bingo lane under PRAISE. Even if I didn't see FAAN (which I didn't #knowledgesaddest) to play O1 CLUNG or O1 CLUNK etc., I still could have done N2 GLANS. BIG oof
I genuinely was considering D10 Q(A)T, which sims better here, but eventually went with C9 WO(R)DS instead in hopes of giving myself a chance to end a bingo with an E on the B column. Plus, if I drew an I, I had the 12A QA(D)I setup next turn #strategysmall
I might genuinely be a dumbass. I considered 11E UMU and then decided to take the Z instead because I was worried about leaving it hanging. #STRATEGYSMALL the dumb bitch disease is alive and kicking, folks
