X - xi
If you're a Scrabble player, you'll know how valuable the two-letter words can be. They allow you to make words in two directions and thus score twice for the letter common to both words. With xi placed properly on the board (i.e. x on a triple letter score space) this little word can score a mighty 51 points.
Recently I've been playing Scrabble online through Facebook. It's actually the only thing I use my page for--but because of this, Scrabble is becoming an integral part of my day. I'm playing with four different people including my son and I'm somewhat concerned about the addictive qualities of this activity. That said, if anyone who's reading this would like to play, I'm more than willing. Just be prepared to accept the word xi!
