“Your turn Vani.”
“Mmm okay…. I have to combine my word with any one on the board right maa?”
“Yep.. any one on the board.”
“And if I keep all seven letters I have on my bench, then I get extra points right?”
“That’s right, but your bench needs to be empty… only then you are eligible to get those extra fifty points.”
“Yayyy…” Vani was excited beyond words. She began picking out the letters from her tile rack and arranging them on the board.
“There!! My first 7 letter word… Verandah.” Nothing could contain little Vani’s joy at having scored an extra fifty.
My friend Leo and I are writing on the same theme for the AtoZ2015. The word for the alphabet V that we've chosen is Verandah.
