What

We play Scrabble! Anyone is welcome to visit or join. We have players of all skill levels, from novices to world championship competitors. We are less structured than most Scrabble clubs – you don’t have to play a certain number of games. On the last Wednesday of every month we have a slightly more formal club tournament. If you come on one of those nights it’s best to arrive on time and be prepared to stay for four games.

As with most Scrabble clubs, the atmosphere is friendly but the games are competitive. As the late veteran U.S. player Stu Goldman observed:

There are two kinds of people who come to a Scrabble club for the first time. One kind gets beaten very badly, and they say, “This is awful. I’m never coming here again!” The other kind also gets beaten very badly, but they say, “I love this game. I’m gonna learn how to play it.”

We certainly hope you’ll enjoy yourself and come back again and again like so many of us do.

Ratings

Although we no longer publish club game results online, we record the scores of the games and use the results to assign and update numerical ratings to player, but we have our own system distinct from the one used by NASPA. Our system is explained here.
