When playing the 9 tile variant in scrabble do you need to play all nine tiles at once for a bingo or just 7 tiles as per the regular rules.

    You're playing a variant: so make up your own rule with whomever you're playing with, agree to it; and stick to it. Sep 3, 2022 at 9:33

    We'd need to know which 9-tile variant this is. If the only information is that it's a variant with 9 tiles, we can't really tell you how the bingo also works. Sep 3, 2022 at 21:13
  • The 9 tile variant of scrabble is very common, and has only two modifications to the rules, a 9 tile rack, and bingos are scored on 7, 8, and 9 letter words.

The 9 Tile Rack variant of scrabble hasn't been included in an official rule book yet, so there isn't a canonical source; but whenever it's included in a non-official source it includes a 50 point bingo for 7, 8, and 9 tile words.
