Score Sheets

There are lots of different score sheets available, yet some folks get by using just a blank piece of paper. If you want to track tiles or record your racks, having a pre-printed score sheet is a big help. Experiment with different ones, pick one you like, or design your own. Whichever you choose--once you've become accustomed to one design you should see your game improve because tracking and scoring will become second nature.
