THE TILE DISTRIBUTION


There are 94 tiles in total ranging in point value from zero to nine.

Letters are presented below in order by their frequency in English words (according to http://www.askoxford.com/asktheexperts/faq/aboutwords/frequency).

As you can see, this forms the primary basis for the distribution of tiles and assigned point values (with a little tinkering by the inventor based on experience with the game).

This tile distribution is reflected in version 2.0 or later. Earlier versions used a slightly different set.
