Introduction

Scrabble! Hooray!

What Lynda is saying about this Meetup Group

My first meetup with this group: positive experience. I will attend again. Both my social and Scrabble skills have atrophied so much that it took me months to RSVP/attend after I joined. I was made to feel welcome in a non-competitive atmosphere; dictionaries and cheat sheets were both allowed and available. The skill levels were varied: some scored well over 400 and some under 200. The second round matched those with similar scores from the first round. I was pwnd first round and barely won the second at the bottom of the night's round-up. Yet, the only intimidation I felt was when asked "are you good?" when I introduced myself ...I didn't know how to answer because I didn't know what "good" means in this context--although I'm getting an inkling. However, I think it doesn't matter in this group: only Scrabble-Love counts. All skill levels seem welcome. No one sang the Jeopardy theme song when I was trying to place 6 vowels+a"C"/consonants+a"U" on a board with few openings. :-)
