Svenskt Scrabble

We have the game. We have a date. We have a pub!

Who's in?

I suggest we play 4 teams of 2, so 8 people. I know we've got 10 at the moment but I expect a couple will pull out between now and then, but if not we'll sort something out.

In the mean time, I found out through meetup member Eidgee that popular Scrabble-like game WordFeud now has a Swedish dictionary!

So if you have an iPhone, Android or Windows Mobile, grab the app, RSVP to this event and share your username :) You can then spend your boring moments waiting for the bus, sitting on the toilet and work meetings learning Swedish words!

    Well the one I ordered has already shipped and is due 1st of May so we should be fine for one. I think it's maximum 4 players though so even if we do teams more than one board would prob be good

    I've just registered with the Swedish ebay site, in the hope that I can get something like this: http://www.tradera.com/finding.mvc/itemlisting?header=true&search=scrabble .... but I am not sure if it would deliver to the UK, or what the costs would be....

    Right, well, I'm sure we can work something out with regards to ownership, I just ordered one anyway... :D
    (if for no other reason than that I can now actually start working)

    Sounds like a National Scrabble Shortage. En brist! (And when I learnt that word I thought I'd never get to use it, silly me).

    If we can't find someone who has an old game lying around we can buy one for the group and then whoever wants to pay can pay a small fee and eventually we'll cover the cost of it. Does this sound okay?

    Actually, Amazon sells it for £38 here http://www.amazon.co.uk/Scrabble-SCRABBLE-Swedish-Language-Version/dp/B004SFAT3Q (two left) shared ownership, anyone? is there a meetup emergency fund?

    Cheapest place I've found so far is SEK500 (half for the board game, half shipping). In most places it's actually sold out!

    Grant & Cutler sell foreign language Scrabble but NOT Swedish (but, outrageously, they do have Danish!).

    Caroline: Worst case I'm going to be there at the end of June. But hopefully we can get one before then!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
