We recommend that you come at least 15 minutes early so that we can go over the basic mechanics of a competitive Scrabble game, including use of the game clock and adjudicating challenges.
To make your first experience less intimidating, we provide the following advantages to new players:
- Use of the Cheat Sheet for tournament players during play.
- Free challenges: you will not be penalized if you challenge an opponent's play and the play proves to be acceptable.
- No overtime penalty (normally 10 points/minute) if you take more than 25 minutes to make all of your plays.
If, at any time, you have a questions about rules or procedures, don't hesitate to ask for an explanation.
Here are some useful resources for new players:
