    Re: In Another Language

    I googled "How many camels are there in Venice" <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15> and it would appear that they have not been counted recently..... So I am afraid I can't help you. <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15>

    Perhaps. But if you're an American in Paris, a camel is still a camel. But if you're an American going to Iceland, you'd better take your <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">C's</span hide> with you.

    Actually, there are only four places that the answers for CAMEL would be valid. Otherwise, you would have to double or triple a letter or word score.

    Re: In Another Language

    Actually, I have a list of 29 words where the u does not follow. Because of the scarcity of those words, the books on the game I have read say that one of the first things a beginner to the game should do is to memorize those very words.

    Re: In Another Language

    This site may clear it up a bit.

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">While reviewing the letter sets of the various-language versions of the game, it struck me as odd that the letter Q in the English language version hasn't been replaced with a Qu tile. I know, I know, there a twenty-nine very obscure words in the English language where a Q is not followed by a U, but I've checked, and those words have never been used in a Scrabble game.</span hide>

    <img src=/S/poke.gif border=0 alt=poke width=60 height=17> Yeah, that's what I said. Twenty-nine!

    The Aussies sure have a way with their Q's. Here's their list of 79 words...
