Scrabble ’09 – Final Score!

scrabbletourney2009

We’re obsessed with Scrabble. So obsessed that the family decided to have a full, all-out tournament for the entire duration of 2009. Pretty impressive, huh? At first, I thought I would simply update my blog to keep people in the loop with our progress. However, I realize that we play quite a few games and it’s possible that people may not want the clutter in my blog (because I have such insightful things to say that updates on our Scrabble tournament may seem mundane).

To clarify: in the Player’s Stats, Number of Bingos refers to the number of times a player has been able to use all 7 tiles in one go.

Thus, I have created the 2009 Scrabble Tourney page. Welcome!
