If you use the minus sign to play a blank tile, please let your
opponent know what letter it represents. Blanks have no score
and they have to represent a letter (A to Z). They must not be
used to represent an empty space! Blanks remain their
designated letter, for the duration of the game. They cannot be
assumed to be any other letter, if they are played anonymously.
Tip: If you are playing a blank that coincides with a letter you
already have. Say you have one Z
one blank, but need to spell a word
with two Z's
and you want your Z
to play on a triple, or double letter square. Then it is better to use "-", the
minus sign, to play the blank explicitly, so the game knows
exactly WHERE the blank should be played. The game will always
play the actual letter first, and assume the second letter
be the blank.
is no rule in Scrabble, that allows the exchanging of a blank
played on a game board, for the letter it represents, nor to use
it to represent any other letter. Blank
tiles have no score value. The game is best played using
Microsoft's Internet Explorer.
