Imagine it: you’re sitting down for family game night. Someone suggested Scrabble. It’s not your favorite game, but you don’t hate it. You get the first turn, and your initial letter lineup isn’t looking promising. You have: W, Q, L, T, I, X, Y. It looks like there are some options, but being the first player, you want to make a splash. But, you’re not a walking dictionary, because, let’s face it: if you were, that’d be kind of horrifying.
So, the question then becomes: is Qi a word you can use in Scrabble?
Is Qi a Scrabble Word?
Yes! It’s actually the highest scoring word with those letters. If you opt to play Qi, you’ll net yourself a cool 11 points to start the game off right. And, if you happen to have an S, you can play Qis for 12 points! But, let’s say you want to find some other words that start with Q, but also include I and S?
- QULLIQS — 25 points
- QUERIES — 16 points
- QUININS — 16 points
What is the Definition of Qi?
Merriam-Webster’s dictionary defines Qi as: vital energy that is held to animate the body internally and is of central importance in some Eastern systems of medical treatment (such as acupuncture) and of exercise or self-defense (such as tai chi). It is a noun that also serves as a variant spelling of CHI.
