I just picked up the game at Essen and very excited to play. I'm living in France and wondering if anyone has experience playing the game using non-English words. Or if there are any rule tweaks people might suggest.

For example, the letter Q is much more common in French so it should maybe not be worth as much as it is in English, whereas I think K is super rare in French so could maybe be worth even more...

You might want to look at the work that went into making the German version, which Lines posted here as a guide to others adapting it:
