If you are one of those people who are struggling to win in a game of Scrabble at home, with friends, family, or your significant other, then fret no more. There is a way to up your game and make people fear you for some real competition.

Have you ever thought of using a camera to win a Scrabble game? Well, here are some tips and tricks, by Wayne from Devscover, on how you can lay down the highest-scoring words based on the tiles you have.

You will need a Raspberry Pi model that has a camera and display ports. This trick works best with the Raspberry Pi 3B, a touchscreen device, and the Raspberry Pi High-Quality Camera.

You will then need to input the command “raspistill” to capture a photo of the tiles you have. After this, run the Python script “twl” so that it can process to find the highest scoring word you can lay down. The said script is crucial as it contains all the words that you can use when playing Scrabble.

Just a note, this trick does not process the blank tile in Scrabble. Some may consider it a downside, but it’s your opportunity to take advantage and show how you can turn things around with this one mighty tile.
