I have begun a tournament of Scrabble with Mark.  Here I will list all the games of Scrabble I play against him including information such as scores, all words played, and highest-scoring play.  I will also list our cumulative scores and cumulative number of wins.  We plan to play 500 hundred games over the course of about two years.  We’ll see if we aren’t sick of Scrabble by game 15…

Other notes: The first time in the challenge that anyone has used all seven tiles in one turn was when Mark played “trolling” for 82 points.  He forfetied a turn later in hopes of getting a letter that could allow him to play “weaponry,” using all his tiles again.  He got the letter he wanted, but Sam took his spot.

Mark played the word “police” for 20 points, but he could have instead played “cop” for 21.

  1. Urmmmm Sam, Sam, Sam, you and Mark with your scrabble playing. I bet I would loose miserably, if I ever even attempted to take on either on of you. :)!!!! … Have Fun:)

  2. I know.

    … seventy-two to be exact unless you count the match where Mark will cut off your left hand. You win that one by default.

  3. We’ve played three games so far with two more planned for tonight. We’ve agreed to play 500 games. I’ll be inputting data shortly…

    • Two tonight, crazy children that play scrabble on a school night XD!!!! I wanna predict this Mark will win 1 and you will win one 🙂

  4. We’ve played all our games on school nights so far…
    I’m going to win both.

  5. Actually, you didn’t win anything. Mark and I both did.

    • Yes I know, I was refering to my guess, as in I win at guessing 🙂
      I most likely fail at scrabble.
      Like most things.

  6. It wasn’t a contest. You win nothing. I cannot be beaten.

  7. CHILD! Do not give up. Although… you do win at everything. Gaw. Don’t you just hate when reality kills the mood?

  8. It’s more than fine. It’s wonderful (for me)!

    • Well I’ve got a new attitude on life :)…Although…. there’s one thing missing..

  9. Proper mechanics?

  10. This all has a weird sense of déjà vu.

  11. No hablo francés.

  12. Yeah well I don’t either. Don’t pull that one on me. (smile)

  13. Can you say that in French? Can you type it in French? Estoy tomando el Español Dos.

    • Qui Je ne peux!!, Je suis des cours de français deux de la classe, qui est 🙂 Hardeharhar! Je gagne!!!!! 😀

  14. Oh Cheyenne, I believe he went there. (laugh)

  15. Oh snap.

  16. (I can only say that in English)

  17. This page is in sore need of updatednesssssss.
