SUPERSCRABBLE GAMES – JAN 24, 2019 RESULTS

CONGRATULATIONS to our champions for winning 3 games:  ALAN STERN and TOM TITUS.   Alan had the highest number of bingos=15; Tom found 5 bingos.  We’re back to the usual schedule of playing 3 games.  We only have one deviation from this norm in December when we play 2 games and a non-Scrabble game to enjoy a different kind of game.

A detailed look at the score sheets revealed: DAVID PODER won the High-Point-Game =1183 and the High-Point-Cum =3120; ALAN STERN won the H-Bingo-Word QUERISTS =194 points; LYNN GUNN won the H-Non-Bingo-Word FAQIR =81 points; and RENÉE KAHN won more category words than anyone else, because she studies the assigned category words that Maliha lists in the REMINDER-email. Again CONGRATS to all winners! Everyone is a winner at the Superscrabble Club.  In case I failed to mention it before, the games at the Superscrabble Club is an open mini tournament.
