How many of each letter are there in Scrabble?

Answer

In Scrabble, J, K, Q, X and Z have one tile each; there are two B, C, F, H, M, P, V, W and Y tiles; there are three G tiles, four D, L, S and U tiles, six N, R and T tiles, eight O tiles, nine A and I tiles and 12 E tiles. There are 100 tiles total.

In Scrabble, players earn points by making words. Each letter is worth a specific number of points, and there are special squares on the board that increase the value of letters or words that are placed on those squares. The most common letters are worth the least amount of points.

For example, all of the letters that have four or more tiles in the game are worth only one point. The letter D is the only exception to this rule, and D is worth two points. The rarest letters in the game are J, K, Q, X and Z, and these letters are worth 8, 5, 10, 8 and 10 points respectively.

If a Scrabble player has all of a word except a letter or two, he can use this list of tiles to figure out whether or not his desired tile might be in the bag. For instance, if the player needs an M, and there are already two on the board, that means that there are no M tiles in the bag.
