In this strip, Calvin asked Hobbes how many points he got from the word "be" (2 points). Calvin then yelled, "2 points?! Is that ***** <u>all??"</u> , where Hobbes remarked, "My, this game '''''does''''' teach new words!". He then went on to spell "zygomorphic" on a triple word score box (150 points). Calvin took the "i" from Hobbes' word to spell "in" (3 points). Then, Hobbes took the "n" to spell "nucleoplasm" (40 points), at which point Calvin kicked the board over and played poker.
