The Scrabble War

On Saturday, I signed up for a Scrabble Competition in Serian. All these while, I thought playing scrabble is easy. But then, I was very wrong! After meeting experience players, I really felt like a stupid guy. Hahahaha!
Playing scrabble is not just thinking of forming words with limited letters you get. It is also about
a) to score the highest.
b) to make full use of your letters in order to get 50 marks at a time.
c) to block winning opportunities for others.
d) etc.

I was shocked when I was beaten at all rounds. Senior teachers, age 40 to 50, had been playing the game for more than 20 years. They had lots of words to build and scored high marks. I am blessed that some of them were willing to teach me on how to score better in Scrabble.

It was really a fun event and I hope to meet them again next year. This time around, I will make their life difficult. Hahaha

Scrabbles! It has been quite a while. With how fast things move now, scrabbles can be too slow for many.

I love scrabble! I play it on Facebook a lot :D but I'm sure I'd lose against everyone cause I can't think 2 steps ahead as those experienced players do :) It indeed is not easy as most people would say at first.
