So you say you have a penchant for words involving the letters X, Q, and Z?
So you say you got what it takes to break out the two letter words that burn? (FE, ZA, and QI included)
Well, you're in luck. Because we're Team Scrabble and that's what we do. We bring the Scrabble. You bring your game face. Somehow it all results in good peeps, good times and sometimes very satisfying mosh pits to Chumbawumba songs... (Sometimes, coincidentally, alcohol is involved. Sometimes, just caffeine.)
The dish: for the entire month of January (should we repeat that?) we are playing Scrabble with complete and total strangers EVERYDAY! Join the game by adding us on Twitter and finding out what our next target will be or message us to arrange a match! http://twitter.com/teamscrabble
Why are we playing Scrabble every day?
Well, for art, actually. We'll be making a book of the finished boards to be exhibited at the end of the month for Fun-A-Day (http://artclash.com/) but we also really like Scrabble. Also it's nice to play Scrabble with random strangers from random bars/cafes/sidewalks/etceteras. If you like Scrabble too, you may already be part of teamscrabble.
Disclaimer: we have come to this forum for one purpose and one purpose only: to play Scrabble with you. We're here for word play, not sexy times. That's not to say we're puritanical or anything - dirty words are welcome on the board (OF COURSE) but if you're expecting this to be a cutesy front for something other than SERIOUS RANDOM SCRABBLE ACTION, we entreat you to look elsewhere.
But you don't have to be. We don't always win! If you've never played Scrabble before, but think this sounds like a rad idea, we're game. We'll teach you the rules. :)
If you do have a vicious 2-letter word habit, can make any 7 letter rack into a BINGO, & average higher than 300 points per 2 person game, well, that's not bad either. Ahem. Please get in touch.
friendly strangers who're game for wordplay
Here's where we've been:
Here's a list of random places that we'd like to play:
The Albany Bulb - SATURDAY
Your mom's house
Random rooftops with scenic views
All Night Long's
The aquarium -CHECK
Got any other ideas? Hit us up. We've been going to bars A LOT. It works, but at the end of the month it would be nice if we didn't have to say that we went to 31 DIFFERENT BARS. We figure it's probably easier to set up more awesome and *slightly* less alcoholic Scrabble dates if we plan in advance. We like this idea. Drinks get expensive.
