Does anyone know the points for "Ostrich", "Historic", and "Coistril"? I know the game but I don't have it at home.--Dgbrt (talk) 18:25, 24 June 2013 (UTC)

Not sure what double word type modifiers they have but here are the base scores:
clitoris 10 + 50
coistril 10
ostrich  12
historic 13
Choosing historic would be the best family friendly option, but is a far less desirable choice. 05:43, 7 July 2013 (UTC)
The only placement for historic would get it onto the triple word score with one doubled letter, making 42. Still nowhere near coistril or clitoris, though (which can both get the 50 point bonus and the double letter score for the C). 21:25, 9 July 2013 (UTC)

Please do a separate post and do not destroy the former discussions.--Dgbrt (talk) 22:49, 5 September 2013 (UTC)
