RULES

Just 1 for the evening - and the money goes into the prize pot

Opponents for each round are chosen by the Ancient Ceremony of the Hat - using pieces of paper that have been handed down through the generations of Morston Scrabble Players.

The winner is the person with the highest aggregate for the evening's games.

45 minutes time limit for each game - if not finished, your current score at 45 minutes is added to your evening aggregate (usually 2 games in an evening).

Each player has a list of allowed 2-, 3- & 4-letter words and there is a dictionary that they can refer to in the game - it helps to level the playing field and stops know-alls winning all the time.

THE TROPHY

Morston Scrabble Club Trophy

The club trophy was hand crafted by a master trophy sculptor from the illustrious local firm of E Hamond & Son - in case you were wondering, he does not make driftwood sculptures of Burnham Market.

Each month's winner gets to take the trophy home, and then must present it to the following month's winner along with the prize bought from the monthly entrance money.
