Make use of K

The letter K is relatively uncommon in the English language, which means there are fewer words that start with this letter compared to more common letters like A or E. However, this scarcity can work to your advantage if you can strategically use it to form high-scoring words.

Despite its scarcity, there are several high-scoring words that start with K. Familiarize yourself with words like "king", "kite", "kangaroo", "knock", "knight", "kitchen", "keyboard", and "kick". These words can help you rack up points quickly.

Since K is often paired with other consonants or vowels to form words, consider how you can combine it with other letters in your rack to create longer, higher-scoring words. Look for prefixes or suffixes that pair well with K, such as "un-", "re-", "-ing", "-er", or "-ly".

Aim to maximize its potential by strategically positioning it to form multiple words or utilize bonus squares.

The letter X pairs well with various vowels and consonants to form words. Look for opportunities to combine it with other letters in your rack to create longer, higher-scoring words. Words like "box", "mix", "ox", "axe", "tax", and "fix" are examples of simple words that can be formed with X.

Always look for the best move!

Try to place the letter K on premium squares on the game board, such as double or triple letter score squares, to maximize its point value. Pairing K with high-value tiles like I, N, G, S, or T can also help boost your score.

If you're unable to form a high-scoring word with K, don't be afraid to adapt your strategy. Consider playing shorter words strategically to set up future opportunities or to block your opponent's moves.

Maintain a balance between vowels and consonants on your rack, including other high-value letters. While K is a valuable consonant, having too many consonants or vowels can limit your word options.

Be aware of your opponents' moves and anticipate their potential plays involving the letter K. Be prepared to block or capitalize on their moves to maintain control of the game board.
