11-19-15 Results Super-S Games


Welcome Luisa Arnold and Rubina Chaudhary for joining us this Thursday. Rubina played a game after observing a couple of players who showed her how to play Super Scrabble®.  She has never played this game before.  Luise played 2 games; it was her first experience with Super Scrabble®.  Please come again because we love playing with you.

We enjoyed the change of weather, no one cared about winning three games!  However, we witnessed another fantastic happening — NANCY DOUGLAS was able to hook “DEMON” on an existing word “OLOGIES” making it a 12-letter word DEMONOLOGIES. Congratulations to:  NANCY DOUGLAS for winning $55!  BILL LAPINSKI for high game of 1144, and for playing the most number of bingo words=13; NAJAT REIKES for finding the highest scoring bingo word for TRECKING*=118; and to RENÉE KAHN for finding 6 words in the assigned categories of the day.  The next Super-S meeting is on 12-03-15.
