Which word gives you the highest possible score on Scrabble?
Let’s get right to it: the highest-scoring legal Scrabble word is OXYPHENBUTAZONE. After adding up all the bonuses and tiles, you will score 1,778 points from that word. “Oxyphenbutazone” has never been played, and it won’t be played unless a miracle happens. Even laying it down requires a particular configuration of eight letters, and to arrive at that absurd number, it needs to be strung across three triple word scores. In fact, that number is more than twice the points that have ever been achieved in a single Scrabble game.
