A scrabblematic problem (Posted on 2016-03-25) Difficulty: 4 of 5
Using not more than 16 tiles from a standard Srabble game create an alphametic equation w1+w2=w3 , where w1,w2,w3 are English words and the sum of scrabble values of the participating tiles is maximal.

Rem1: The alphametic must have only one solution.
Rem2: The words used must be listed at this online scrabble dictionary.
Rem3: The letters' values are here.
Rem4: Try to do better than HEIGHT+QUIZ=TRUDGE (my example).

Some Thoughts Using the Official International Word List | Comment 3 of 13 |
The International English Scrabble word list has the word ZANJA and its plural, yet the word is absent from the YourDictionary word list. Otherwise, the following alphametic is a good candidate for a
higher letter value

ZANJAS + YUAN = EXEQUY  [letter value = 54]
194693 + 7894 = 202587

EXEQUY - (n.) funeral rites
YUAN   - (n.) China's basic monetary unit
ZANJAS - plural of ZANJA (n.) an irrigation ditch
