This is very like Scrabble, with a standard Scrabble board,
with something like three important differences:
1. The only permitted words are offensive - either expletives
or very non-right on words such as the N word or
2. The tiles have letters on one side and stars on the
Letters are selected by the player but must be placed on the
transparent board star side up.
3. The number and score of letters is not based on the entire
corpus of the language but on the frequency of the letters in
the limited vocabulary of words available to the players.
In order to reveal the winner, the board is covered with a
tray and flipped to show the actual words. Up until that
point, the game has a Battleships-like quality where
opponents must attempt to guess the words the other player
has put down. Some of these are easy, such as the twelve-
letter example given above, but naturally many of the words
have four letters. Whereas it's possible to bluff, doing so will
disqualify the bluffing player at the end of the game. In
order to detect the player, the tiles are coloured and each
player has their own tile bag.

That would lead to all sorts of silly words, like "shik" and
