New this month Factual error: He's playing Gabriel in scrabble and puts down the word sphinx. Gabriel replies "59 - impressive" but this is not possible with the word sphinx. The letters add up to 18, so on a triple word score without any other bonuses it would be 54. The only other multiplier in range is a double letter square - with a single-point letter (the S, I or N) on a double letter score it would be 57. The next highest-scoring letter is P, worth 3 - with that on a double letter the total would be 72. No way to score anything in between.
