Polyglot Scrabble

Postby quendidil » Sat Jun 14, 2008 11:37 am


This tournament for the brightest polyglots to ‘lock horns’ is being held in sunny Spain in October/November. It’s a Scrabble game with a difference where competitors will be allowed to play in many languages at the same time, and score extra points for each different languages they use.

There will be a prize of US $2000 to the best player. The tournament is being organised as part of our celebrations of the 60th Anniversary of Scrabble and the world’s press will attend, so the Champion’s fame will be spread far and wide.

If you are interested in taking part please email Philip Nelkon on scrabbleuk@mattel.com by 23 June with your contact details, your nationality and if different, a note of the country that you would want to represent (travel and accommodation expenses will be paid.)

Thank you

Awesome! we'd so rock that competition.

Haha, where the heck in Spain is it? Unless they mean Spain, CT, or something!

Gonzalo could go at least, tell us of it.
