Eau Claire (LITERACYCHIPPEWAVALLEY) – Scrabble is a well known board game that people have cherished for generations and there is a fun event happening next month called ‘The Scrabblebee’ with Literacy Chippewa Valley.
It’s Scrabble with a twist! A team of 6 members work together to build words and play 3 games. The team achieving the highest total for all 3 games is declared the winner! Enjoy an evening of friendly competition! Each team is assigned a Word Waiter, a regulation Scrabble Board and a bag of 100 tiles.
The Tortoise Division is for those teams that prefer to play Scrabble the traditional way. The Hare Division is our version of speed Scrabble. Played in three timed rounds, teams are given 100 tiles to build words as fast as possible. Each round increases in difficulty as tiles are removed and the time decreases. Normal scoring rules apply. Round 1 = 20 minutes. Round 2 = 15 minutes – 20 tiles are removed, but you can buy them back for $5 each Round 3 = 10 minutes – 10 tiles are removed, but you can buy them back for $5 each.
This will be on Thursday April 18 in the JMAF Theater at the Pablo Center.
