When and where does the club meet?
Mid-Cities SCRABBLE Players Club We meet each Tuesday (except holidays) at 6:45 p.m. at Whataburger, 2155 Airport Fwy, Euless, TX 76040 (behind QT - take a left turn from Westpark Way to a little road just past the entrance to QT)
Our players' skill levels range from novice to expert,
and about everywhere in-between. Some of our players are "competitive"
and there are also players who don't play in tournaments and just play
for sheer enjoyment.
How much does it cost, and are there prizes?
We pay $2 per night to play. Most of that goes toward providing a site for our annual tournament, which is held in May. For students high school or younger, the fee is $1.
Each night, except the last night of the month, there is a $1 prize for the person who gets closest to the random magic score.
each player's birthday month, he receives a birthday card with a
certificate for one free club night to be used whenever he wishes.
How many people per game, and how many games per night?
have two players per game and play three games per night. Occasionally
a player comes late and only plays the last two games, or he may have
to leave early and only plays the first two games.
What do I bring?
You may bring your deluxe board if you wish, although we usually have enough available.
Who is the director?
Our director and co-directors are Mary Rhoades, Dee Segrest and Kate Watson. Mary was one of the founders of the club in 1983.
