Saturday Word Play- Scrabble Ghost Busters



This week, it's all about the ghosts. I'll give you the author, the piece in which the ghost appears, and the Scrabble point value of each letter in the answer. How many of these can you identify? As always, feel free to do them all at home, but only answer one in the comment section, that way 10 people will have a chance to play.


1. William Shakespeare (Hamlet): 5-1-1-2 4-1-3-1-1-1

2. J. K. Rowling (Chamber of Secrets): 3-1-1-1-1-1-2 3-4-1-1-1-1

3. Henry James (The Turn of The Screw): 3-1-1-1-1 10-1-1-1-1
