Scrabble Tips: That scary Q.

By:Marty Rubenski

For many players the letter Q is the scariest unless you happen to have a U.
Ther are actually several words that do contain Q without a U, although to be fair these are all of non English origin. Still if it’s in the dictionary it counts, right?
Memorize these few words for a distinct Scrabble advantage.
Since these are difficult to spell, let alone pronounce, I've included definitions to help memorization.

QOPH: The 19th letter of the Hebrew alphabet.
