I like it, a nice brainteaser, but there seem to be quite a few valid answers missing. Jamaica = 18, Myanmar = 14, Denmark = 14, Bahamas = 14, Bolivia = 12, Bahrain = 12.

In fact I believe there are twelve more countries that score 12 or more.

The instructions say the length limit is 7 letters, but you've actually limited them to 6.

Technically a name for the Czech Republic, though most don't consider it when spelling out names used in in English

There's no rule that words can only be 7 letters in Scrabble. You can only play 7 letters at a time, but you can use existing letters to make words of up to 15 letters (the size of the board).

I'll say that 9-15 letter words are almost never played in Scrabble (although possible). In professional Scrabble, 8-letter words are very common as a bingo using all 7 tiles and an existing letter on the board. I can see not wanting to add 9-15 letter countries, but I don't know why 8-letter countries are not included.

I think there are still some missing, for example Myanmar, which is 14 points.

Hungary - 14 also is one

I don't know how everyone forgot about Mozambique, assuming there are no multipliers of word or letter score, it would net 34 points.

I do believe the max length should be 8 considering you add letters to words that are already on the board. Just a suggestion though.
