Pirate Scrabble - and other motivations to play!
Found some stuff online to get you guys motivated to play Scrabble. As you may have gathered from training, Scrabble Night in Canada is Frontier College's big annual fundraiser. Students for Literacy in Ottawa is planning to do an event in February, but thought we'd get you thinking about Scrabble a bit before hand. We are also going to be having monthly pubs/meetings where, among other things, we'll be playing Speed Scrabble. If you've never played, you will soon discover it's addictive.
But onwards with this Scrabble themed post. To begin with, check out Pirate Scrabble:
Some other fun things to try out online are Pholph's Scrabble Score Generator v1.0 where you can quickly determine the point score for any word. I tried my name and, much like when we did Human Scrabble in Toronto, found out I wasn't worth too much :(
For those of you desperately wanting to play or practice who are lamenting the fact that you do not have a Scrabble board - fear not. You can download an emergency Scrabble Board and letters HERE.
For those wanting to brush up on tricky words, or simply pick up some tips, you can check out Scrabble Junction. There is also a lengthy links page here, linking to other Scrabble resources online.
Finally, you can also practice at Scrabble Blast! a link posted to the blog previously by Lyndsay.
Happy Scrabbling! (Which I don't think would count as a word if we were actually playing...)
