Scrabble Rousers

By weeklyvolcano on July 8, 2009


SCRABBLE King’s Books invites you to invoke your inner child and throw down on some triple word scores as it presents the next installment of Scrabble Rousers Tuesday. Unleash your desire with a game of Scrabble is the invitation â€" reclaim the innocence and power of shaping the word matrix. It’s like a spelling bee on shrooms. The Scrabble Rousers event is designed to be accessible to everyone. Before the fun begins, participants choose a skill level â€" beginner, intermediate or expert â€" and split off into pairs. That means Scrabble guppies don’t have to worry about getting picked off by Scrabble sharks. Yes, there is actually such a thing as a Scrabble shark â€" like a pool shark, only not quite as lame. 

“We aren’t interested in making people feel defeated by Scrabble sharks (although we love you too),” say organizers in an event description provided by Tacoma Community House, which will benefit from the event. “Then we start playing nontraditional, shorter word based games (not Scrabble) that get peoples brains going and thinking about words.”

MC sweet pea will lead the games, occasionally interrupting for quick bouts of word exploration, dancing and factoids.

[King’s Books, 6:30-9:30 p.m., $10 benefits Tacoma Community House, 218 St. Helens Ave., Tacoma, 253.272.8801]
