IRL Triple Word Score
I can't remember the last time I (or anyone I know, for that matter) turned off Words With Friends and picked up a physical Scrabble board. How do you scramble your tiles without the little button? What do you mean you can talk to your opponent face-to-face? For those looking to learn new strategies or show off those real-life, tile-wielding skills, Saturday holds the perfect opportunity. Scrabblequerque is a recreational tournament that benefits the Reading Works adult literacy program. A $15 entrance fee gets you 3 games (with prizes for winners, of course) and participation in a clinic led by nationally rated player Nancee Mancel. So put down the smart phone, grab your biggest dictionary and put those word skills to use for a good cause. (Emily Aragon)
