In SCRABBLE, players take turns creating words out of their seven letters. Each player places a word on the board on his or her turn. Words must connect to other words already on the board, either horizontally or vertically.
Each letter has a number that shows its point value. Your score is based on the point value of each letter in your word, multiplied by the premium squares on the board.

Scrabble Tips & Hints
Rank progress in Scrabble is based on the number of tiles you play. If you are interested in ranking, you should play as quickly as you can. Play longer words, but don’t waste time trying to maximize your score. Also, familiarize yourself with the 2-Letter words available in Scrabble. You will need to use them at the end of the game when you are down to just a few tiles.
EllyMentary writes: use Traditional rules, double browse or play with a friend. Starting at the star, put down ALL YOUR TILES, no matter what they are. If no one challenges that you will get credit for a bingo. Next person puts down all of his tiles directly underneath yours….lined up. No challenge and lots of tokens, also points for big words, etc. Keep doing this til the bottom of the board, then start next to the beginning and put tiles down the left side of the existing “words”. You get badges really quickly this way. You won’t get game credit as the words aren’t words but you’ll get that bingo badge.
