    A variation based on the binary system: 0's and 1's. The language of computers. :)

    The game is simple. You only have 2 tiles in your letter rack!
    Question is can you use both of them for the bingo bonus?

    ~ The board is simple. White is the start square (x1). Grays are reset squares (with no extra turns).
    Black squares are regular squares. No bonus squares! :-o
    ~ The letter distributions are based on a formulaic approach using all 2-3 letter words in the SOWPODS dictionary.
    Not all letter tiles are present. (There are none of the following letters: C, J, K, Q, V, Z.) However, the blanks can be any letter you wish!
    ~ Points are awarded as follows.
    + 00 points for each blank.
    + 01 point for each vowel.
    + 10 points for each consonant.
    + 11 point bingo bonus if you can use both tiles.
    ~ The game may abruptly end with tiles still remaining in the bag or tiles unplayable anywhere on the board.
    Use this as a possible form of strategy.

    10Q, enjoy and have fun! :)
