Thanks to Don for telling us this news...
It's now possible to follow many of the expert games from the recent
NASPA Championship online.  One option allows you to see each rack,
determine what your play would be, and then click forward to see
what was played and what choices were preferred by Quackle.
For this alternative, go to:
  http://event.scrabbleplayers.org/2015/nasc/build/index.html
and then click on "Games", and then on the game you wish to follow.
The second option is to watch a video of the selected game, with
expert commentary, via:
  http://www.scrabbleplayers.org/w/2015_NASC_Game_Videos
Seeing the decisions, and, occasionally, mistakes, made by some of
the game's top experts is a great way to help improve your game.

WHAT supports watching a recorded game also, based on a .gcg file.


SURVEY + O makes a common OWL3 seven, and Collins is the same.
