Welcome to NANCY DOUGLAS our latest newcomer! We hope to see you again and again.
The result of our recent 9/11/14 Superscrabble Club games is overwhelming. It is proven that the brain exercise at a Superscrabble game is working. Congratulations to you all! The concentration exerted by the following players to find a word that fits each category assigned is remarkable (things from grocery store, pets, seawater creatures, WH…words): Gretchen Cowan – whine; Bill Lapinski – brownie; Najat Reikes – honey; Bob Agnew – white; Miriam Melendez – scone; Fern Trausch – seeds, whited; Renee Kahn – flask, junco (bird); Nancy Douglas – cuttlle; Tom Titus – whigs; Joyce Palmer – whelp; Maliha Mahmood – abelia; and Pat Yarnell – harlequin (as in harlequin snake, harlequin dog).
BILL LAPINSKI was unbeatable in the quest for the highest bingo point at 176 for IMBOWERS, high game at 1304 points, for the most number of bingoes with a total of 14 words, and for the highest cumulative score of 3146. Wow! Congratulations to Bill for doing so well. Keep it up and keep coming to the best Scrabble® practice of honing your skills, and for getting ready to go to a tournament worldwide.
As you all know by now, another prize category has taken effect on 9-11-14, which is an award for the highest cumulative points after 3 games, whether or not you win all the games. You win if your total score of the day beats anyone else’s total.
