Scrabble - 1st and 3rd Monday, 2pm
There is a new Scrabble Group, which started in May 2018, at Marina Court, in the main building.
Marina Court is on the left on the Bredon Road, north-east from the Black Bear roundabout at the north end of Tewkesbury High Street, before you start to climb past the Mitton estate.
First and third Monday of each month; from 2-4 pm.
Some help with setting up the heavy tables before 2pm is much appreciated, so that we can start on time and get in a full two hours of Scrabble.
With approval from the committee, we may be able to have some light card tables instead, soon.
Our Scrabble is stimulating, challenging and FUN!
Beginners are welcome - and you don't have to be good at whole-rack 7-letter anagrams, like they have on the TV show Countdown - you can make a lot of points using only one or two of your letters, if they are strategically placed.
We do have lists of some very strange 2-letter words, to check out the possibilities...
We sometimes [by prior agreement] use a recent official Scrabble rule, where you replace the blanks [steal them] if you have the right replacement letter, and it is your turn to go.
You can also lay down tiles in the same go - using the stolen blank if you wish.
This switches the advantage remarkably from player to player.
