The word “syzygy” refers to the alignment of three celestial bodies. The word is pronounced “SIZ-i-jee” and requires the use of one blank title to make up for there only being two “y” tiles in the game. To make the most out of the word, players should aim for the “z” to land on a double-letter square and the “y” at the end to land on a triple-word score square. This gives the player 93 points.

The word “zymase” describes a complex set of enzymes that cause glycolysis. The word is naturally worth 20 points in the game. Making the high-scoring letters in the word land on as many bonus squares as possible gives the player a higher score.
