Playing in our club, you may occasionally see 12-letter words like REILLUMINATE*, which is not acceptable in the NASPA Word List. In this case, one player played the phony LUMINATE, his opponent added IL to make the acceptable word ILLUMINATE, and the first player added RE to the beginning. (Photo by John Wilder)
