Meet other Scrabble fans to eat, play games, maybe drink some coffee, definitely make new friends, and get out of the house on weeknights (when you'd otherwise be on your computer in your pajamas). We'll play untimed games of 4 people max (so if more RSVP, please throw your scrabble board set in your car in case it's needed).
I will be starting at 4:15 now instead of 6 so people can come and go as they please throughout the evening. Usually takes place Wed or Thurs eve.
Join us for an evening of friendly competition, casual banter, and warm beverages. Players of all skill levels are welcome, as are newbies and students. However, we strongly suggest that you know, or quickly learn to, count scores fairly accurately. We usually have enough boards, but if you're going to come regularly, bring your set to be sure. Suggestions welcome.
Only one strict no-no: Do NOT bring outside food or beverages (except maybe bottled water) to Panera. They kindly allow us to play in their establishment (they've even let us finish games after they've locked the doors at 10), but they are a profit making enterprise. Don't endanger the groups use of their space by bringing outside food, please.
We rely on The Official Word List (preferred) or the Official Scrabble Players Dictionary (4th Edition) as our default references. However, Paula now has the Official Scrabble Players app on her iPhone, which has been updated since the 4th Edition.
