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 When the standard is Super | Comment 9 of 13 |
Using a Super Scrabble tile set and keeping to the chosen online Scrabble dictionary and the 16 tiles the maximal is a bit higher. In this case, the sum is 82.

QAJAQS + JAZZ = SKYBOX
295923 + 5944 = 301867

QAJAQS -- plural of QAJAQ (n.) an Inuit canoe [variant of kayak]
JAZZ -- (n.) a type of music characterized by improvisation, syncopation, and regular or forceful rhythm; (v.) play or dance to the jazz music
SKYBOX -- (n.) an enclosed seating area, usually luxorious, and located high in a sports arena
