Scrabble

Mike and Dave like to play Scrabble. Mike never cheats. He always plays valid words and never plays out of turn. Dave, however, cheats. Sometimes he plays invalid words, but Mike never challenges. Sometimes he makes two plays in one turn. Mike never notices. Today, Mike and Dave have started playing a game. Mike played first. After 7 plays, the board looked like this: SPUD
PORE
OPEN
TEAT As usual, Dave has already cheated one time. How has Dave cheated?


Answer:

There are only 2 'P' tiles in a Scrabble game. Dave has taken an extra 'P' from another game and used it in this game. Today's brain teaser courtesy of Braingle.com.
