Four of us were playing. It was late in the game. I was struggling through some tough letters (something like two Xs and one Z), and I had just torn down a few words and was wildly reconfiguring them, when, with a few letters left, someone said "Peel", and as I began to reach for a letter, one came sliding across the table toward me. I thought, "How convenient! At exactly the moment I need a tile, one appears!". I initially thought the person who had said "Peel." had knocked an extra letter in my direction, but when I looked at the letter, it was a Q. Someone had pulled a late match dump (or something) without saying anything and then slid the letter to me! The moral of the story: Beware of flying tiles!
