 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).

 official solution (maybe) Comment 13 of 13 |

If no higher score is posted till May  1, 2016 this will be the official solution:

<begin>

So far the highest score is derived from:

EXEQUY + JEFF = YAKUZA      64
595176    +8544   = 603720      ..…. contributed by Ady Tzidon

EXEQUY - (n) funeral rites
JEFF   -(n) men’s name
YAKUZA -(n) Japanese mob

Second best is:

QUEAZY + JYNX = ANANKE   58
195238   6807   202045
…. Contributed  by Dej Mar

QUEAZY - nauseated; ill
JYNX - wryneck, an Old World bird akin to the woodpeckers that was also considered a bird of ill-omen
ANANKE - (n.) fated necessity

<end>
