Last move stale mate

What happens if no-one can make the last move in Scrabble?

In Scrabble tournaments this situation does indeed happen from time to time. The rule usually used is that play continues until each player has passed their turn three times in a row (making six passes in total), and then the game is declared to be over. Each player then subtracts the value of their tiles from their scores to get their final total.
