AND "GAUNTLET" is a bingo.
WON'T YOU PLEASE JOIN US on January 19th at 826NYC in Brooklyn for the upcoming
SCRABBLE FOR CHEATERS?
AT WHICH the renowned and goodhearted tutoring center/superhero supply company hosts a SCRABBLE COMPETITION featuring many teams, including one composed of:
2) the foreigner, JOHN OLIVER
THE CHEATING PART can be explained thusly: in order to raise money for the 826NYC organization (A GOOD CAUSE), you people of the internet and beyond are asked to
BUY "CHEATS" for the team of your choice.
SUCH CHEATS include:
- Trade out a letter—$25
- Wheel of Fortune: buy a vowel—$50
- Flip a letter over and make it blank—$100
- Add 10 to any letter’s value—$150
- Add Q, Z, or X to any word, anywhere—$200
- Passport: play a word in any language—$250
- Consult the dictionary for one turn—$300
- Consult the Scrabble word list for one turn—$400
- Reject another team’s word—$450
- Invent a word (must have a definition)—$500
NOW, AS JACKIE MCLEOD AND KIERA KNOW, I am normally very strict about the rules of SCRABBLE.
HOWEVER I MAKE AN EXCEPTION IN THIS CASE and urge you to buy some cheats for Oliver so that he can spell words incorrectly like "HONOUR" and "COLOUR" and "GAOL" and "GIRAUFFE" and feel at home, at last.
OR ALTERNATELY, form or join your own team and START GUNNING FOR US.
SO WON'T YOU PLEASE help us cheat?
That is all.
That's the best idea ever. If only all charity was so fun.
Somebody playing that game knows their chemistry terminology...
If I had any monetary funds I'd truly help you and one John Oliver cheat at scrabble especially using words with a "U".
So wish i could be there (but I live far away. sigh). Still, I know people in the area and will nag them to go so I can enjoy it vicacariously.
Can I come watch without actually entering the contest?
If you ever come (back?) to Toronto, or anywhere in the Southern Ontario area, I officially challenge you to a Scrabble game.
Not that I'ma GREAT Scrabble player, but I can hold my own. No cheating though.
