If you are a word gamer, then The Tiles Spell Murder! is for you.

This blog consists of two serial fiction stories - one within the other - that are designed to help you improve your word game vocabulary, from Scrabble to Words with Friends to Words with Enemies (the Doctor Who version of the game!) to Boggle.

To do well at any word game that takes place on a board (as opposed to Boggle) the building blocks are the 2- and 3-letter words. Even if the rest of your vocabulary is "normal" - i.e. you don't know all the esoteric words that are never, ever used except in Scrabble - you can still score very well if you know how to build good words by "hooking" them to 2-letter words (thus creating a 3-letter word, as well as the high-pointer you're making.

So please enjoy The Tiles Spell Murder!
