Halloween Came From Where?

Originally starting out as an ancient Celtic holiday, Druidic priests regarded the day as the end of the year and a celebration for the year's harvest. October 31 was the first day of a three-day celebration called Samhain, meaning "the end of summer". It marked the passage from the season of the sun to the season of darkness, but was also a festival for honoring the dead. The Celts believed the laws of space and time were suspended on this night, allowing the spirit world to crossover and intermingle with the living world....Read On

Advanced Scrabble Techniques

The first advanced skill appearing on every expert's list is rack management. A play is good if it considers first, the points earned, and second, the leave. To play competitively, one must keep a balanced rack. While there is an element of luck in any draw, a player of skill knows when to sacrifice a higher point value for a better leave. In general, one should try to play longer words, in order to keep tile turn-over high, increasing the chance of getting the best letter combinations for bingos. Consonants and vowels should be kept in balance in order to avoid difficult scenarios. Tile tracking is one way players may decide between two good plays. If you know there are still several Os in play, you may opt to keep that I instead. And even after following the guidelines for the best rack management, an expert knows when to trade in....Read On

Three Lateral Thinking Puzzles

Lateral thinking - what is it? The word was invented by Edward DeBono in 1967. Somewhere along the way it became a part of the English language (it's in the Oxford English Dictionary and others now). DeBono says there are several ways to define it. Lateral thinking is a way of attacking problems from other angles, as opposed to the more traditional linear and logical ways. Debono uses chess as an example of the latter, where logic normally suffices - because the pieces are a given. In real life we mostly just assume the pieces are given, when really we need to change those pieces or look beyond them for the most useful solutions.....Read On
