Here's a brief talk by Scrabble Jedi Master Mehal Shah on simple techniques for kicking butt at Scrabble. It's from Ignite, an event series in which presenters give very brief (five-minute) talks as their slide decks auto-advance every fifteen seconds (that means 20 slides total). There is no backing up, pausing, or digression. You'll be amazed how much Scrabble strategy Shah can share with you in just five minutes.

Discussed: how to play clean, and how to play dirty.
