Lucky door prize
As I completely and utterly failed last time, thus forgetting to do the lucky door prize (sorry) we will take 2... The lucky door prize will be a $10 voucher for The Games Capital. It is free to enter, just come pester me for a ticket.
Rules of play
- Take 2 - also known as Speed Scrabble, is a fast-paced, non-turn-based Scrabble variant played without a board. Tiles are placed face-down in the middle of the table in a communal pool and each player is given 7 face-up starting tiles. From their starting tiles, each player tries to build their own valid Scrabble grid - players do not use each other's grid or tiles. When a player successfully uses all of their face-up tiles, they shout "take two" and every player takes two more tiles. Play continues until there are no more tiles left to draw.
- Up Words - follows the same rules of scrabble however each player is able to build on top of existing words. For example, an A can be placed on top of the O in cot to create the word cat.
