The next Superscrabble Club meeting is scheduled for June 2, 2016, 10:00a.m., at 2130 Chandler Drive, Tustin 92782, 714-544-4746.  Reply to this email or text Maliha at 714-654-4308.  If you’re new to Super Scrabble® and would like to experience a crossword game with 21×21 grid of quadruple letter/word scores, please confirm your attendance to ensure sufficient food and refreshments.  Equipment is provided. There’s no fee to join the club. Come, play, meet, and make new friends. Click the globe to download the free WGPO-WJ2 app.

There are prizes if you win all 3 games, find the assigned category words, finish with the highest-scoring game, highest cum, and highest number of bingos played. It’s all for the love of words. We start at 10:00, have lunch, and play two more games in the afternoon.  Our adjudicator is an electronic app that can judge challenged play from 2- thru 21-letter-words.  For a “second opinion” we can manually refer to a hard copy of the “WORD JUDGE FOR CLUBS AND TOURNAMENTS” the official word list of WGPO (Word Game Players’ Organization: wordgameplayers.org).
