The thrill of victory and the agony of defeat

The folks got us a new game for Christmas -- Super Scrabble. Have you heard of it? It's, like, 10 times the pain fun of original Scrabble. So we hauled it out and challenged them to a duel. Three long hours later someone finally slapped down the last tile and put an end to the brain gymnastics. Whew. It was grueling, it was exhausting, it was satisfying! When the dust settled everyone looked so beaten down I told them to freeze, flipped on the self timer, and dove back to my seat for a quick family portrait. But afterwards the picture just KILLED me. Because something had subtly changed before the flash went off. Take a look. Um, gee, can you tell who won the game?
