 A scrabblematic problem (Posted on 2016-03-25)
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).

 Two solitary birds | Comment 5 of 13 |
Equal in letter value [54] to previously given solution is the following solution, with each of the words appearing in the YourDictionary Scrabble word list:

LANELY + JYNX = QUEZAL
693164   8432   701596

LANELY - (Scottish-English variant of) lonely
JYNX - wryneck, an Old World bird akin to the woodpeckers that was also considered a bird of ill-omen
QUEZAL - a colorful bird of the Trogon family (variant of QUETZAL)

A one-point smaller solution of 53-points is:

QAWWAL + ZEST = XYLYLS
795592   6431   802023

QAWWAL - (n.) a performer of the Muslim devotional music style qawwali
ZEST - (n.) enthusiasm; energy; the rind of citrus fruit used as flavoring; (v.) to scrape the peel of citrus to be used for flavoring
XYLYLS - plural of xylyl (n.) an isomeric monovalent radical C8H9 derived from the chemical compound xylene
