One of +Dave Goldberg’s many skills is that he’s a stellar Scrabble player, and one of his secret weapons is knowing all 101 valid two-letter Scrabble words. This lets him make words alongside other words, picking up the scores of the old and new words – and counting the letters in the new word twice. It's a bit tedious learning the two-letter words, so I built www.gojoza.com to train myself. You’ve already learnt three of them – ‘go’, ‘jo’ and ‘za’ are the only valid two-letter words starting with ‘g’, ‘j’ and ‘z’ respectively. Click on the valid words, but not on the others – and hover over a word to see its definition. Here’s to higher-scoring Scrabble games!
