With the seventh edition of the Official SCRABBLE Players Dictionary (OSPD) coming out, there will be new words added to our tournament lists someday soon, we hope.
Meetings: When: Mondays (was Wednesdays in the past (was Mondays before that)).
Play starts about 7:00 PM so it is good to arrive 3-20 minutes early to set up and chat. If planning to leave before round three, please inform the director beforehand. It goes until about 10PM.
What: NASPA stands for North American (the game) Players Association. Scrabble is a registered trademark of Hasbro, Inc and NASPA games is not affiliated with Hasbro. We play 3 rounds and if we have an odd number of players then either someone will wait til the next round or sometimes a player will play against two players at once.
Word list: We generally use NWL2020, the North American tournament and club list recognized by NASPA. Some "Cheat-sheets" are available with lists of valid 2- and 3-letter words and some words with JQXZ and a few useful 7 or 8 letter words. We have not added the new words from Official Scrabble Players Dictionary Eighth Edition, which is not great. Other organizations use NWL2016 or
