Super-S Results 3-24-16


We all had a good time and fun games at Ruby’s Diner. Fourteen of us enjoyed the day last Thursday 3-24-16. Thanks to Paul Trachtenberg who graciously came to make our group even. We missed Gretchen, Tom Titus, and Paul Kanter. Congratulations to the following winners: Pat Reed won 3 games, and had the high-scoring bingo=138 for CANDLES; Roy Kamen had the high game=1057, high cumulative score=2991, and the most bingo words played=15. Beethoven’s Symphony #5 instruments for the orchestra were hard to come by, in spite of the many words suggested including Amnon’s expanded list relating to the Symphony #5. Only one player, Renée Kahn, found a word: FLUTE. Several players found words in the “-ITE” category.

Our next SuperScrabble Club meeting is scheduled for April 7, 2016. If you’re new to this game and interested to experience the 21×21 grid of quadruple letter score and word scores (in addition to the standard double and triple-letter word scores), don’t hesitate to contact or text/call her at 714-654-4308. There’s no fee to join the club. You’ll be winning some prizes if you win all 3 games, find the assigned category words, or end up with a high-game score and cum scores — it’s all for camaraderie and lots of fun. We start at 10 a.m., have lunch together, then play two more games for the rest of the day — just to keep our brain cells going all the time. It’s also a good preparation for serious competitive scrabble players. Our adjudicator is an app that can judge challenged play from 2- thru 21-letter-words, downloadable free by visiting a site
