4-24-14 SUPERSCRABBLE STATS

Standard

April 24 is an unforgettable day for Bob Agnew. I didn’t believe him when he said that the most used book in his home nowadays is WORD JUDGE USA. His incredible performance proved that reading all types of words…from very short to very long…can actually improve the chance of winning in our favorite mind sport. After 19 months (from 9/6/2012 thru 4/24/2014) he won all 3 games of Superscrabble (SS). Bob=779 and Pat Y=727; Bob=847 and Najat=816; Bob=857 and Tom=829. Three games of SS may be equivalent to playing 6 standard Scrabble games. Everyone thought he retired a long time ago from "scrabble-kingdom" but when SS Club began in 2012 he started playing again. Congratulations, Bob! Bill Lapinski: High game=1128 points, plus finding 15 bingo words. Tom Titus: High bingo word=140 for MINSTER. Renee Kahnearned her bejeweled SS rack featuring blue topaz with almandine after playing SS over 30 times. Happy scrabbling, Renee!

MARK YOUR CALENDAR – APRIL 24, 2014

Standard

REMINDER: April 24, 2014 Superscrabble Club. We welcome newcomers. The first game starts at 10:00 A.M., group lunch is next; and we play two more games in the afternoon. Please respond and confirm by email, phone 714-544-4746, cellphone or text 714-654-4308. If you’ve never played Superscrabble before, current participants will be happy to show you. There’s no need to bring equipment. Come and meet new acquaintances, or get renewal of happy bygones. Kindly forward this reminder to your best friend.

First game category: Words having to do with colors or painting. Examples: mauve, aquamarine, reddish, yellow, green, golden, blond, indigo, orange, brown, blackish, violet, purple, etc.
Second game: Semiprecious or precious gemstones. Example: lapis, azurite, tourmaline, amblygonite, quartz, jadeite, topaz, diamond, garnet, citrine, pearls, kunzite, tanzanite, amethyst, opals, etc.
Third game: Lizard Critters, examples: chuckwalla, agamid, iguana, iguanid, skink, dragon, basilisk, tuatara, gecko, chameleon, etc.

LEARN a long word that can be played in multiple steps. Here’s a good one, and it’s a verb: COMPARTMENTALIZE, COMPARTMENTALIZED, COMPARTMENTALIZES, COMPARTMENTALIZING = 18 letters. Possibly, you can start with COMP or MENTAL, and so on. There’s 205$ saved up for anyone who can complete the long word. This is waiting to happen since Sept. 2012. 5$ is dropped in the box after each Superscrabble event. Try your best to find any long word–this is an on-going challenge to all superscrabblers.

To qualify for the categories listed above, the word must have five or more letters. Also during the three rounds, any word that starts with SEA– will have a prize (with five letters or more). See the rest of the "SEA–" word list at , superscrabble21; .

Congrats to the following superscrabble champions: Bill Lapinski scored 1097 for high game points; Tom Titus and Najat Reikes won three games; Pat Reed played 12 bingo words; Fern Trausch found the high-scoring bingo at 118 points; and a special mention to Renee Kahn for the highest accumulated score of the day at 3041 points. Two individuals got their special bejeweled scrabble racks based on their attendance at Superscrabble games since Sept. 2012. Gretchen Cowan for attending Superscrabble games 34 times, and Bob Agnew for 32 times. Anyone who completed 30 times of superscrable games will get the special sculptured scrabble rack decorated with semi-precious gemstones. It was a special day organized by our beloved Gretch, who brought champagne glasses and champagne to celebrate the book-signing event on the side: Maliha’s trembling hands (out of excitement and nervousness) signed away copies of WORD JUDGE USA, the Complete American English Word List for Popular Word Games Approved by WGPO. Thanks a million Gretch, and to everyone who purchased a book for their personal use and home library. I am grateful and truly appreciative of your support.
