One of my favourites. The idea came after I'd published the last one and wondered how Crow might have placed all of those words himself, or at least the last couple. I thought to start with that they might be playing some obscure set of rules (Mornington Crescent-style) which allows a player to have another turn after placing a word over a certain score. But then, remembering that Maureen can't spell, the obvious answer is that she's missing turns because she can't go. And having a really obvious high-scoring word and not realising it was too much fun not to draw.

That makes this my first 'prequel' and as we know, prequels are usually terrible.
