Superscrabble Club Stats 1-16-14

Standard

I apologize. There was an error in the earlier log for 1-16-14. mm

We began by playing modified speed Scrabble® with 10-minute duration on the 1st round. The concern of unlimited phonies that can surface was addressed. The rule was set, so that the total score of each phony word was deducted at the end of 10 minutes. The Superscrabble Club is a casual and a friendly club. We play to have a good time, learn many acceptable words to play that we hope to remember when we go to a tournament, enhance our mental acuity, and exercise our arms and fingers to place the 200 tiles correctly on a board with 21×21-square spaces. It’s a great circle of people who may later become good friends. Congratulations to all the winners!

1st round, speed Scrabble® using 100 tiles: Roy Kamen won first place with 662, and five bingos within 10 minutes. Gary Moss was 2nd at 608 with 4 bingos. Najat Reikes was 3rd with 514 and 3 bingos.

2nd and 3rd rounds Superscrabble games: Pat Reed had the highest game points of the day at 1064. Roy Kamen in second place for high game at 969, winning both rounds, and high cum of 1895 points. Fern Trausch in third place for high game at 952, winning both rounds, and high bingo of 103=FASTEST. Pat Yarnell also won both rounds. Fern Trausch and Pat Reed tied in the number of bingos played (8).

Mark your calendars: January 16, 2014

Standard

The next meeting is scheduled for third Thursday, January 16, 2014. Please invite a friend to come and enjoy the funnest club in OC. New comers will be allowed to play with a “cheat sheet.” Please confirm by emailing or texting 714-654-4308 your intention.

To extend the New Year 2014 celebration, we will deviate from the norm by playing Superscrabble Speed Game. Here’s the plan: A timer will be set for 10 minutes. Each player scrabbles by herself or himself, watched by an assigned partner. The partner makes sure the player abides by the rule. Draw 7 tiles and play as speedily as possible. Replace the drawn tiles to keep a total of 7 tiles on the rack before each play. Exchanging tiles is allowed 5 times only during the entire 10 minutes. The partner writes down each bingo word played, the number of exchanges, and the longest word on the board. At the end of 10 minutes the timer will buzz off, and all players must STOP. Players are allowed to finish the last play within 30 seconds. The player must figure out the total score. The partner must verify the total score, the bingo words, and the longest word played. The second 10-minute round begins, wherein player and partner thence exchange places. After two rounds the highest total score will win 1st prize: one cent per point earned. Players who are tied with the same score will split the 1st prize. 2nd is half of 1st prize; 3rd is half of 2nd prize.

FIRST ROUND: Superscrabble Speed Game – two 10-minute games

SECOND ROUND: Words about exercise: jogging, walks, pushes, stretches, jumping, dance, etc.

THIRD ROUND: Words beginning with COR–: corms, corky, copula, cords, coral, corner, etc.

LONG WORD TO KNOW: Coquettishnesses (16 letters). Starting with coquet, coquettish, coquettishness, ending with the plural form coquettishnesses.

I will be making the “famous” Filipino fruit salad (according to the Arab, Indian, and Pakistani ladies who raves about this salad with their friends). No need to bring sack lunch or “pot-of-luck.” My usual offering of food for all to enjoy still stands; this is my family’s tradition that’s hard to break. However if you feel like it, you may bring two pieces of fruits of any kind to match the fruits I will be using for the fruit salad: apples, pears, oranges, grapes (just a small bunch of grapes), and two bananas.
