Gah, unfortunately I will get a late start on this one, and I will be busy that entire weekend. :-

Since it isn't mentioned in either of the above adverts, and although you may have guessed from Angiejla's post, Absolutely Scrabulous has been written by JWawro.

And as angiejla says this is your first solo attempt, may I wish you good luck and hope that everybody enjoys playing with the progeny of the inner workings of your brain. Thumbs up

I'm looking forward to seeing whether any of it bears a relationship to how my mind works.

The puzzles in Absolutely Scrabulous all follow the normal rules of Scrabble, although you may need to think laterally about some of them. While you're waiting though, here's a little teaser to get you thinking a bit differently while (hopefully) widening your Scrabble knowledge!

Please PM your answers to JWawro (don't post answers on the forum to allow everyone to have a go).

Two more correct entries. Look for my above post to be updated as the winners continue to be recgonized (until I run out of room).

The points are merely the best Scrabble plays available given the board arrangement, and don't represent anything relating to ranking the entrants or their answers (so don't go changing your name to JQXZ, just to gain favour!).

And, as of Puzzler2, we have exceeded the tile distribution. For the sake of this endeavour, I have chosen to ignore the letter distribution.
