* {{Cap}}: According to the [[Creator/PopCapGames Pop Cap]] website, the largest score attainable in the original PC version is 2,140,000,000. This is because the game cannot correctly interpret numbers higher than that. Should someone obtain a score higher than the cap (''extremely'' unlikelly), the score would become the opposite of the score i.e. negative.

* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: The whole point of the game is to get into this way of speaking so as to score higher. In ''BookwormAdventures'', Lex himself speaks in this.

* TooAwesomeToUse: Diamond tiles. They are the most valuable type of tile and are worth a buttload of points and worth ''so'' much more when used in large words. This makes it very difficult to feel justified in using them when a better combo could've been achieved.
