I told my Scrabble playing friends (pictured above) that I was going to post this photo and caption it “Scrabble Players Wanted.” In the past couple of years, we (about six formerly regular players) haven’t played much, but we’ve been talking about getting our monthly games going again and rotating the meet-ups at different homes and locations. This game, hosted at Chelsea’s house, was a great start. It was also the reunion of “Two C’s and a V,” the name we – Chelsea (left), Colleen (me) and Virginia (right) – took at the 2008 Scrabble Tournament at the Jefferson Center to benefit the Literacy Volunteers of Roanoke, which we won!
Even though I hadn’t played in a while, the luck of the draw was in my favor. I started the game with a Scrabble Bingo, a 7 letter word that brought a bonus 50 points. Can you find it, and the second one that came later? Read more about our big Literacy Volunteer game win HERE.
