[yeah, I know men are going to read this, and I hope they're entertained, as that's the goal of the content. A former World Champion has informally taken issue with this content, so it must work!]

Dress: Grande Dame or Petite Fille, you'll want to emphasize your assets and deemphasize your liabilities, but be sexy and feminine at the same time. Where you shop is up to you and your demographic, but here's a tip -- avoid wearing garments purchased from a women's boutique with "Barn" or "Hut" in the store name.
Eyes: The Wink:
This is fun to do, but takes some practice. First, look in a mirror, doll. In almost slow-motion speed, close your right eye, as in a classical wink. Simultaneously make an almost imperceptible, gentle pout, leading with the right side of your mouth. Practice repeatedly until you get it. Lips should quiver into a pucker like the beginning of a "why" sound. Your face should not scrunch up as if a snowflake had landed above your lip. Do not sneer.
Legs: Okay, I know not all of you will be able to use this advice, but for those who can -- Two words: High heels.
Why?
Men love high heels. No matter if you're 5'10" already and the heels push you up past 6'1". They love to see the foot curved. A pair of heels gives thin legs curves and full legs streamlined elegance. Your upper body becomes majestically straight, providing you with bust thrust. Height and stance accentuate voluptuousness, making you look Valkyrian on your twin towers of power.

Gambit #1: While seated, lean down as if to adjust the base of your shoe, the vamp, or ankle strap. Let your fingers linger on your feet but keep your eyes on your SO (Scrabble Opponent, dears) who has captured your attention for the moment.

Gambit #2: Swing those legs gently to and fro. Like Daddy pushing you in the swing. Did one stocking leg accidentally brush against the inner calf of your male opponent? Oops!
Titter titter

Gambit #3:Nudge his toe with yours or use your toe to explore beneath the hem of his trousers. Rest your foot against his, then remove the pressure, then press against him again. Do this in a very spontaneous manner so he's not sure if the contact is intentional or utterly innocent.


Scrabble® Strategy
and Vocabulary: Well, duh. But who better to give you pointers than those men ogling you from the expert section? You think they're going to notice you by your rating? And hey, it's plenty fine and conniving to use flirtatious techniques to get the 1800+ rated players to strut to YOU and give you Scrabble® advice. Just keep the topic firmly Scrabble® unless he's a dream and he offers you a gimlet or a Bucks Fizz.
