comment Origin of scores for letters in Scrabble (in relation to their frequency in a langauge)
Thanks! Though, "calculations for the letter distribution in the game" is still a bit vague (did he used some formula? or just the ordering?). Plus, I guess, people had to set scores for other languages somehow. I saw even contesting the original scoring (e.g. due to language changes) in blog.dictionary.com/tile-values (also Scrabble word frequency; see also original article and code), but with no statement what is the goal.

@freekvd It is an open question which word frequency. You are right, that likely more related to frequency of letters in words than language (for the reasons you mentioned).

@Jefromi While it might be difficult to track the original version, there are dozens of localized versions, each with a different language. And for each of them scoring had to be set somehow.

revised In Smallworld, do Fortresses pay the +1 VC only on the turn they are placed, or do they each pay for every turn that the race is active?
