Safari Game

Logic puzzles require you to think. You will have to be logical in your reasoning.

 Puzzle ID: #5699 Fun: (2.82) Difficulty: (2.11) Category: Logic Submitted By: Gizzer

A group of friends is on safari (a photo-safari, no animals were killed during the creation of this teaser!). During the game, they are awarded points for each animal they get. For example,

LION=4 points minimum
HYENA=11 points minimum
GIRAFFE=14 points minimum, but would be worth over 64 points in a certain situation.

Based on this information, what is the minimum number of points for a ZEBRA?

Bonus question: when would a GIRAFFE be worth more than 64 points?

ZEBRA=16 points minimum

The game they were playing is Scrabble, so the minimum number of points therefore Z=10, E=1, B=3, R=1 and A=1, for a total of 16 points.

Note that this minimum is based on not forming other words with letters, and not placing letters on a double/triple letter or double/triple word score.

Bonus: GIRAFFE is a seven letter word. If you use all 7 of your letters when forming a word, you get a 50 point bonus!
