World's Highest Scoring Scrabble Game.

What's so interesting about the Scrabble board above? It's the end result of a game between carpenter Michael Cresta and deli worker Wayne Yorra, where they broke 3 new records: most point in a game by one player (830 by Michael Cresta), most total point in a game (1,320) and most points on a single turn (365, for Cresta's play of Quixotry).

Every one of these words is in the official North American Scrabble Tournament Word List (TWL). They are also all in the International English word list (SOWPODS). This can be verified by going to one of the online sites that supports search of the TWL list, such as http://www.lexifind.com, selecting TWL, and then typing each word in turn into the Word Check column.

To the people who insist that they know every word in the English language, and are thus the leading authority on the subject, I urge you to rethink your status. There is a very strict guideline for a word to be a legal play in Scrabble, and each word on that board follows that guideline, and as such, is legal. There are many words in the TWL (the tournament word list, which is the official list of words valid in the game) which are not used as part of our daily language. This is due to the tendency for words to gain entry into our language much faster than they depart. Consequently, we have many words left over from yesteryear, which will eventually leave the leading English dictionaries, and, consequently, the TWL.
